Today California-based startup company Qeexo announced that Huawei adopted its FingerSense technology.
As we covered over a year ago, startup company Qeexo has software to detect if it is finger touch, or knuckle touch, or nail touch, or pen touch.
Qeexo was founded in September 2012. In May 2014, Qeexo announced it raised $2.3 million series A funding, led by Sierra Ventures.
Now, Qeexo announced its first smartphone brand customer–Huawei. Actually, Huawei has adopted FingerSense several months ago on its P8 smartphone, but Huawei re-branded the technology as “Knuckle Sense”.

“FingerSense adds a layer of intelligence to smartphones that enables faster access to core features and creates a far more powerful experience for users,” said Sang Won Lee, CEO of Qeexo.
More analysis of Qeexo’s technology and touch panel progress can be found in the “Touch and Emerging Display” monthly report.
