HTC has been ramping up its release of teasers and marketing material to promote its upcoming new "squeezable smartphone," the HTC U 11. Aside from just featuring the device's unique side-mounted touch controls, the company has now released a brand new teaser that showcases more of the device's overall design.

As reported by Gadgets 360, the new teaser prominently shows the tagline "Squeeze the Brilliant U," which is a nod to the device's unique one-handed touch controls. More importantly, however, the new teaser gives fans a closer look at the back portion of the device, including its sleek metal frame and its smoothed out edges. Unfortunately, the short six-second video doesn't really show the device in all its glory, but more teasers should be coming out leading up to the official launch of the device on May 16 in Taiwan.

Aside from its design, a lot of details regarding the device's specs and features have already been revealed thanks to several leaks. Just recently, the device's AnTuTu benchmark results were spotted outlining its different hardware specs. The leak revealed that the device was, in fact, going to be coming with 4 GB of RAM, which could be paired with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. However, there are rumors that have claimed that HTC may offer a 6 GB of RAM variant as well.

According to Phone Arena, HTC will reportedly be dropping the 3.5mm headphone jack for the HTC U 11, similar to Apple and other manufacturers. The company will apparently include a USB Type-C to 3.5mm adapter instead so that users can still use their existing headphones and other accessories. The new flagship will be coming with a 5.5-inch QHD display with a 1440x2560 pixel resolution. The device will also be featuring a 12-megapixel sensor at the back, which will likely be a Sony IMX362 sensor, and a larger 16-megapixel unit up front tipped to be a Sony IMX351 sensor.
