Believed to be in prototype stages, the new tech sensing system makes use of a self-capacitive touchscreen and a smartphone's ability to sense how a user is holding the device. It can also sense when and where a user's fingers are hovering over the touchscreen, and adapt user interfaces accordingly in real-time.

Microsoft's new tech might also boost the company ahead of Apple and Huawei who have already set standards by introducing force-touch and 3D-touch technologies in their smartphones.

In addition, the new tech allows the device to anticipate future interactions with the user based on its orientation. Actions that require precise control or interactions within apps without touching the screen is also possible.
