One of the Galaxy Note 8's key selling points will be its dual-camera setup, something we've seen in countless devices before. Turns out, that's not the only new feature Samsung is swiping from a competitor.
According to The Investor, the Galaxy Note 8 will feature a force touch display that's capable of determining how much pressure is being applied by the user. If the feature sounds familiar, that's because the iPhone 6S (among other Apple products) sports the same technology.
Samsung actually began toying with the technology when it introduced the Galaxy S8. However, the display's pressure sensitivity was limited to the home button. It was a neat way to approach force touch, but it appears Samsung was unsatisfied with its previous implementation.
It'll be interesting to see how Samsung utilizes the technology considering Android offers the software version of force touch already. We can't think of many scenarios beyond pressing down on an app icon and bringing up shortcuts. Perhaps Samsung has other ideas.
At this point, we pretty much know all there is to know about the Galaxy Note 8. In addition to a 6.3-inch display, the device is expected to feature a Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB of RAM, and a dual-camera system. Samsung is planning to unveil the device on August 23.
