  • You may already know that one of the biggest differentiating features for the U11, at least in HTC's view, is called Edge Sense. This is what allows you to simply squeeze the phone's sides in order to perform certain actions, like launching applications for example. Today the Taiwanese smartphone maker has outed a video that teases an upcoming expansion of the Edge Sense functionality. HTC wants you to know that it's still thinking of ways to improve this aspect of its flagship device. So, in the future you'll be able to squeeze your U11 in order to zoom inside Google Maps and Google Photos, change views in Google Calendar, answer and hang up calls, dismiss alarms, and even pause videos in YouTube. Unfortunately what we don't get is a release time frame for these features, we're just told that they are "on the roadmap". Hopefully they will be available soon. Via
