Taiwanese electronics giant HTC on Friday launched its squeezable smartphone HTC U11 in India.

To recall, HTC had launched its U11 smartphone at a global launch event in Tapei last month. The phone had created a lot of buzz in the tech town owing to its unique ‘squeezable’ feature and finally, the phone is making its way to India.

The phone features a liquid glass surface that is made by the Optical Spectrum Hybrid Deposition technology. The phone sports 3D glass on both the sides and features a unique 3-axis symmetry that makes the phone look slim from every angle.
