Default [Q] Do you think HTC logo could be a capacitive button?

Ok so with the M7 an amazing developer @tbalden was able to make the HTC logo a capacitive button. Anyone looked at the specs to see if it's possible with the m8? That bloody big black bezel has gotta be good for something!

They had to keep the black bar to allow room to fit the digitizers for the speakers.

Yes that's right but is there anything left over to use as a capacitive button like with the m7?

No. There's nothing left to make them work.

The logo was never capacitive on the m7. Logo menu was possible because a little bit of your finger made contact with the digitizer directly above the menu at the very edge of the bottom of the screen. I'm sure the genius devs we have will be just as creative with the m8.

Well in my opinion it's going to be much easier than on M7 because on my M8 i can :
- Scroll a landscape webpage just by moving my finger on the top 25-50% of the black bar.
- Wake up the phone by swiping grossly my thumb over the htc logo...

So yeah, this time it should be easy to encode buttons on the black bar and remove soft keys.
