Leak may indicate HTC Ocean still in play

Interest in the HTC Ocean concept slid from view though as HTC moved to release their new line of U phones. A new leaked screenshot showing a setting for something called “Edge Sense” may reveal the HTC Ocean is still somewhere in the pipeline on the way to market.

Now we’re getting all different types of information regarding the Galaxy S8 coming this spring. Things like its launch date, appearance, and logo have all showed up already. There’s probably going to be very little we don’t know about the phone upon showtime.

Today’s discovery involves an area that many people were curious about.
