Honor 8 gets new knuckle gestures with latest Android Nougat Beta
The Android 7.0 Nougat and the new launcher of Huawei, EMUI 5.0, is coming to the Honor 8 soon. And in the latest beta update, we get a glimpse of some new gestures we'll have available for use.

The new gestures are all done with your knuckles. For example, double tapping with one knuckle will take a screenshot, white double tapping with two at the same time, will start recording a video of the screen. Drawing a circle will let you take a partial screenshot of the display.

Swiping horizontally across the screen will make your device enter split-screen mode. And drawing various letters on the home screen can launch your music app, Google Chrome, your weather app or camera.

You can see a full demo of the new gestures below, courtesy of XDA-Developers.
