The HTC U has become the subject of a massive leak which reveals a number of details about the upcoming flagship. The images appears to be sourced from a product presentation for the handset.
Going by the leak, the HTC U’s star feature will be Edge Sense. As has been rumored before, the technology lets users apply pressure to the sides of the device where sensors are located to trigger various actions like launching the camera or Sense Companion.
A series of screenshots seem to indicate that Edge Sense will let people complete tasks by squeezing for a short or long period of time. There’s a tutorial process for each and a sensitivity level page. The last notes that a proper sensitivity level lets consumers interact with the phone comfortably with a low mis-trigger rate.

There’s also mention of the HTC flagship having advanced sound configurations such as 3D Audio for surround sound, Hi-Res Recording for lossless audio, BoomSound, and 4 microphones. It may also come with dual speakers at the top and bottom, in addition to support for the brand’s USonic tech.
