We don’t know much about this feature, however, if you translate the Mobile01 site you will notice that it states that Edge Sense is “Sense Touch official name of the edge touch,” basically enabling you to use of touch-sensitive areas of the outer frame of the phone to perform certain actions in apps.
But it seems that it won’t work like Samsung’s Edge, with Blass stating that it’s not something that shows services or shortcuts when you swipe from the edge.
According to rumours, the HTC Edge will have a Snapdragon 835 processor, 5.5-inch screen, variants with 4GB or 6GB of RAM, 64GB of ROM, USB Type-C charging, a Sense AI assistant and mobile VR support.
However, nothing about this smartphone is official just yet, we will update you when we hear more.
