Samsung Galaxy S8 To Sport Force Touch Display, Rumors Say
Rumors have been suggesting that Samsung Galaxy S8 will be sporting larger 5.7-inch and 6.2-inch screen sizes. Recently, a new rumor says that the Galaxy S8 will have a pressure-sensitive display.
Rumors claim that Samsung will partially adopt the Force Touch Technology into its upcoming Smartphone Galaxy S8 and full adoption is expected to be witnessed in one or two years. The pressure sensitive display technology "will help enhance user interface" leaked an anonymous Samsung Supplier to The Invester.com.
Force Touch Technology Similar to Apple 3D touch
The force touch technology is similar to Apple's 3D Touch. It is already in use on the iPhone display and the MacBook track pads. The technology allows the display to respond to user's touch based on how hard he/she presses the display. The 3D Touch feature on the iPhone allows users to bring up shortcuts for apps, activating a live photo and more depending on the pressure of the user's touch on the display. Similar technology is seen on the Track Pads of MacBook, Force. Depending on how hard the user touches the track pads, the interface shall respond with the corresponding clicks.
Doubts on Partial Adoption
However, it is still an unknown mystery on how Samsung intends to implement this Force Touch Technology into its next smartphone Samsung Galaxy S8, as the supplier stated that the adoption is going to be partial. The idea of partial adoption is something novel and hence tech circles are finding ways to understand the concept.
It is important to be noted that Samsung Galaxy 7 was also rumored to sport a pressure-sensitive display last year, which apparently was not the actual case when the phone was released.
Samsung has been exploring the Force Touch Technology for a while now. The continuous researches on the area call for a consideration that the company might come up with partial adoption sooner or later.
