After the failure of Samsung Galaxy Note 7, Samsung felt the pressure to regain the trust of its consumers. To do so, Samsung is said to be redirecting some of the stress to its upcoming Samsung S8. And, according to the latest rumors, the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S8 will have a pressure-sensitive display.
“Force touch” screen
There is a recent report from The Investor, “an official of a Samsung supplier,” said that “Samsung is mulling to adopt the force touch technology partially from the S8 but the full adoption will come in one or two years.” Although Samsung didn’t confirm the authenticity of this information, this is very possible, given that Samsung has to redeem itself from the Note 7 failure.
We all know that the 3D touch technology was first introduced by Apple for its iPhone and Apple Watch. This technology allows users to forcefully push the screen in order to trigger an app or functions without breaking the screen.
The latest Android, Nougat 7.1, is already equipped to take on this feature, it also supports long-press shortcuts. So, given that the upcoming S8 might also feature Android Nougat, there is a great possibility of a force touch-equipped Samsung Galaxy S8 early next year.
Though not directly, but Samsung supplies the displays, including the screens of the Huawei Mate S released by the Chinese telecoms giant, Huawei. Huawei Mate S was the first Android phone to feature a pressure sensitive screen, challenging that same technology from Apple.
With that being said, there is really a great possibility that Samsung will have one of its handsets to be released with pressure sensitive screens.
What we know so far?
As early as now, there were rumors that Samsung Galaxy S8 will be announced during MWC 2017. And, it is said to feature a 4K screen, a Snapdragon 830, 6GB of RAM and a great camera.
We hope to have more updates in the coming dates. As for now, take all these details with a pinch of salt.
Stay tuned for more details!
