Google Pixel 3 squeezy tease video hints at Active Edge

Only a week out from Google’s Oct. 9 announcement event, presumably for the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones, Google Japan posted a teaser video with 30 seconds of people squeezing things — followed by a few seconds of a hand squeezing the outline of a phone. 

That seems to indicate that the new phones will retain the Active Edge technology from the previous generation of Pixel 2 models.

Active Edge launches shortcut operations when you squeeze the sides of the phone, an HTC-designed feature. Google works with HTC on at least some of the Pixels and acquired a flock of HTC engineers earlier this year.

We reached out to Google for comment, but did not immediately hear back.
