HTC Ocean launching next month as HTC U, features touch-sensitive frame
HTC has a unique trick up its sleeve to keep the company in sync against the innovation of rivals.
According to Venture Beat, HTC’s phone with a codename ‘Ocean’ will feature a novel input method. If other manufacturers already making an edge-to-edge display on phones, HTC has the Edge Sense. It’s an intuitive way of interacting with your phone thanks to frame-embedded sensors. You can squeeze and swipe to operate.
