The biggest innovation is the rumored Edge Sense. This feature allows you to control a number of customizable actions with gestures that you perform on the phone's metal frame (instead of the screen). You can perform actions such as launching the camera or turning Wi-Fi Hotspot by simply squeezing the edges of the device.
