Last week, HTC announced that it will take to the stage on Tuesday, May 16 to unveil its next-generation flagship smartphone, the HTC U (nicknamed "Ocean") — and now the firm has released a short teaser video to drum up some excitement.

The clip, entitled HTC Squeeze the Brilliant U, seemingly confirms previous rumors claiming that the HTC U will have a touch-sensitive frame, allowing users to interact with the device by applying different amounts of pressure and making gestures.
