Samsung Galaxy S8 is just a few months away and talk of the phone is building up rapidly, helped by the absence of the Galaxy Note 7.
The tech giant is expected to make huge changes to the Galaxy S8 when it is announced at the MWC 2017 event in Barcelona. Given these huge expectations already, it is not strange to see new developments like what is currently being spread around.
Apparently, reports coming from South Korea suggest that Samsung Galaxy S8 will ship with a force touch display feature on board. This is a pressure sensitive display technology that we have already seen working perfectly on the likes of iPhone 6S and iPhone 7. Samsung now wants to be part of this golden era with its future phones, something that Xiaomi has already implemented in its newer Xiaomi Mi 5S and Mi 5S Plus. Apple fans call the same feature 3D Touch.
Even though Samsung Galaxy S8 could be the first phone to come in with the force touch technology, the report adds that it could take up to two years before the company fully integrates the technology into other devices. This has not been confirmed by the South Korean tech giant, but given the fact that the OEM’s Display division is the main supplier of force touch screens to the likes of Huawei and Xiaomi, it is possible that this feature will appear on the 2017 Galaxy S8. A Samsung official reportedly added to the talk, citing that the technology will be adopted “in the near future.”
There have been talks of Samsung coming in with a Galaxy S8 that has no bezels, similar to the likes of Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy Note 7. It has even been rumored that the company could adopt a near bezel-less approach so as to add more display screen to the handsets – something that is aimed at regaining disgruntled Galaxy Note 7 users. However, like the case with the force touch display, take this information with a grain of salt for it is based on rumors and speculations.
