The Galaxy S8 might be packing a 3D Touch-esque pressure sensitive display

14 November, 2016 Samsung


A lot depends on Samsung's next flagship and the Korean giant knows it more than any of us. It is for this reason that the entire world is expecting the Galaxy S8 to be packed to the gills with high-end and innovative features. A new feature was added to that list of "expectations" earlier when a report came in announcing that the S8's display might be pressure sensitive. What this means is that the user will be able to apply different levels of pressure on the display to bring up different menus, corresponding to the content on-screen. If that reminds you of Apple's 3D-Touch, then you are absolutely right because that's basically the same technology.


Although it would be a first for any Samsung smartphone till date, Samsung is no stranger to pressure-sensitive or Force Touch displays because Samsung Display is currently responsible for manufacturing and supplying the bulk of the pressure sensitive displays which some of the top-end Huawei smartphones use now. Therefore, we wouldn't really be surprised if this rumor does turn out to be true. If you haven't already, check out our roundup of what the rumor mill is expecting from the Galaxy S8 next year, as well as its likely release date.
