HTC U Ultra and its companion known as U Play are not doing that great, the first price cuts being operated less than a month after their launch. Now, those interested can get the U Ultra flagship for 20 percent less than its original price. However, HTC seems to have something interesting in the pipeline - a squeezable handset.

According to VentureBeat's Evan Blass, quoted by TechCrunch, the upcoming HTC U phone will not use a rubber design, but "the phone’s metal frame will include embedded sensors that enable its owner to control settings and make gestures by squeezing its sides or swiping up and down on them."

HTC's teaser video does not reveal much, unfortunately. The company posted it on Twitter next to the following message: "Squeeze for the Brilliant U. 05.16.2017." These being said, we should wait for the next rumor or HTC's next teaser. In the worst case scenario, we will have to wait until May 16, so stay tuned - sooner or later, we will find out all there is to know about this handset.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
