It is very hard to comprehend who is copying who in the handset industry. Every major smartphone brand wants to provide the best and innovative features to the customers but sometimes they are beaten to the punch by another brand.
iPhone this year is reportedly focusing on bezel-less screen without the home button, a design inspired by the infinity display of new Samsung flagships and now the South Korean giant is also bringing an old iPhone feature back to life.
According to their home country’s publication The Investor, the Galaxy Note 8 will feature pressure sensitive 3D Touch display technology that will use both hardware and software to recognize how hard the smartphone user is pressing on the display.
Apple introduced this technology back in 2015 with its iPhone 6s. The new display will “replace all the functionality of a home button and open a hidden menu with shortcuts to different features.”
The 3-D touch feature will use the same solution that the company adopted for the Galaxy S8 to replace all the functionality of a home button and open a hidden menu with shortcuts to different features.
We are not yet sure whether the new feature will replace the thin pressure sensitive area of the smartphone but one thing is certain that many Apple fans will have quite a laugh over the news or maybe we will be seeing a court room battle between the two companies.
The good news is that we only have a fortnight to confirm whether it is true or not as Samsung is launching Galaxy Note 8 on 23rd August. Looking at the specs of the phablet and its massive infinity display we can rightly predict that the phone will be a spectacle to behold and samsung will have a last laugh this year.
