HTC U to be announced on May 16th, sports a gesture-sensitive frameWith a teaser from yesterday, HTC officially has confirmed that its next flagship - HTC U - will be announced on May 16th at 7AM GMT. The teaser hints at the main and most innovative feature of the smartphone - its gesture-sensitive frame. It is not unveiled whether the frame will be metal or not, but we think that most probably it will be as metal is the only logical material for this purpose. The HTC U also looks like being a very thing and elegant device, so we're eagerly waiting whether this model will put HTC back on track in the smartphone market.Source
