Samsung has partnered with Synaptics for the ClearForce Pressure Sensitive touch solution for smart phones. Samsung may use this technology in their forthcoming model, the Galaxy S7. This new technology can differentiate various types of pressure applied by a finger or stylus. It can also be used in speed scrolling, gaming, texting, photo editing etc.
There is no doubt that the new pressure sensitive display is a reaction to the 3D Touch technology which has already been incorporated in Apple iPhone 6 and 6 plus. This paved the way for a new focus in the silent war going on between Apple and Samsung.
