HTC gives us a glimpse of what’s next for Edge Sense

A few days ago HTC started taking pre-orders for the Solar Red color version of the U11 in the United States, following some teasers. It is a new way of interaction process that transforms the fundamental gesture of holding our phones into a completely new and revolutionary interaction method. Certain apps can be opened, and photos taken.It has been used as a stick to beat Moto Mods, as well as LG’s modular G5, and now the word is being cast at HTC to deride the squeezable Edge Sense feature on the new U11 flagship.The video starts with Google Maps related feature.Personally, I’d like the functionality of quick squeezing to skip to the next song with Google Play Music, and a long squeeze to go back to the previous song.While LG was dissuaded, Moto is persisting and HTC is going the same route by announcing a series of new Edge Sense features coming to the U11 in the near future. Users will have to squeeze in to zoom in on a picture and squeeze once more to return it to the original size. You’ll also be able to answer and end calls, disable alarms, and pause YouTube videos with a squeeze. As of now, we don’t know when this new features will be available.
