HTC U11 got really famous due to some new implementation, it comes with some new technology with which it's edges can sense our force and do work according to our force applied by our fingers. This feature is called edge sense and it is really cool implementation. So it gives HTC some extra marketing. This phone is having 12MP rear camera with f/1.7 aperture lens. So the photography of the device should be really good, particularly similar to Samsung S8 as it is also having the same type of sensor. Also it is having a 16MP secondary camera.
