HTC Edge Sense spotted: the buttonless HTC phone still possible?
Well, when HTC took the stage to announce its brand-new shiny marbles of smartphones, no revelation about such software changes was made. Was the rumor mill wrong on this one?
Edge Sense toggle, which apparently controls the mysterious “Sense Touch” option. From the very limited amount of clues the source provides, we can guess it has something to do with contextual controls, which would be performable by either tapping on the side of the phone, or the edge of the display.
The source also lists specs for the mysterious device that took that screenshot — a 5.5-inch display, a Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4 or 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage, Daydream support, and a special Sense AI Assistant. That last one is a bit weird, since Google did announce that its own Google Assistant is coming to a number of phones soon, the HTC 10 included — we see no reason for it to be gone or to need a substitute on future HTC devices, unless the manufacturer has an amazing AI up its sleeve.
