A new leak claims HTC ' s next flagship Android phone will come with edge sensors that'll perform different actions depending on how long you squeeze it.

The phone is intended to join HTC ’ s recent lineup of other U-branded phones , such as the HTC U Play and HTC U Ultra. This report lines up with another one of Blass’ leaks from earlier this year, showing a video of the presumed HTC U and its innovative control scheme.

It's an intriguing prospect, and we'll know more when the device is unveiled on May 16, according to today's HTC teaser. You can expect the company to shed more light on the squeeze mechanics and other features before that date.

HTC will hope that the U and its quirks make a larger dent than the U Ultra, which has already gotten a 20 percent price cut to increase its appeal despite going on sale just weeks ago.
