VentureBeat details the launch of the ROG Phone 2 from Asus and Tencent Gaming, featuring Sentons technology.

From VentureBeat:

Sentons has unveiled the SurfaceWave Processor and a customized sensor module for the Republic of Gamers (ROG) Phone 2 — Tencent Games’ customized version. Sentons worked closely with Asus’ ROG to create a novel experience with virtualized controls.

As a result, Sentons’ customized ultrasonic sensing module paired with its SurfaceWave Processor, which powers the key new feature, AirTriggers, in the ROG Phone 2.

AirTriggers are a set of sensors mounted on the inside edge of the ROG Phone. These sensors virtualize the shoulder buttons of a console-based gaming controller and provide extra inputs for enhanced interactivity in gameplay. AirTriggers are software-defined and require very low activation force — as light as 5 grams of force, or the weight of a pinch of salt — and yet, able to reject false triggering from flexing the phone.
