• Samsung's Galaxy "S7" to Feature a 3D Touch-Like Pressure Sensitive Display

    The next flagship handset from Samsung, Apple’s largest rival, will reportedly feature a 3D Touch-like pressure sensitive display. The move occurs likely as a result of Samsung looking to get a piece of its marketshare back. According to The Wall Street Journal, in addition to the new pressure sensing technology, the so-called “Galaxy S7” will sport a USB-C port. This port was first used on Apple’s new MacBook and will allow for faster charging of the handset.

    Samsung would likely continue with the strategy of launching two iterations of its device, one standard and one “Edge” version with a curved OLED display. Furthermore, Samsung is said to slim down the improved camera module, reducing or eliminating the hump found on the S6 iteration of the device. Most of the other features are set to remain largely the same, though there wasn’t more information regarding the device’s internals. One of the notable expansions is said to be the return of an SD card slot for expandable storage, a feature which was lacking in the recent devices.

    It’s likely that Samsung would officially announce the S7 during the time of February’s Mobile World Congress in preparation for a launch later in the spring. We’ll have to wait and see what happens.

      Oh man.. I really hope this thing gets a USB-C port for charging just so I can have some laughs at those that point fingers at Apple about changing plugs up.

      Hahaha Samsung. The only problem is it will only be compatible with Samsung apps and won't support any other android apps unless devs team up with Samsung which they hardly ever do, i.e. Samsung smartwatches good luck Samsung (aka 6 galaxies a year ain't enough)

      How is it that Apple stole the idea from Samsung, made it better and Android is coming out with it, "after the fact"?

      Well, let's hope Samsung has better luck with it, than they did with the the fingerprint sensor.

      Actually to be fair, 64-bit ARM processors were starting to come out in general around that time, so I don't think this one counts as a copy but was/is more of a general advancement that was adopted by most handset makers, at least for higher-end handsets.
