Samsung is expected to launch its latest Galaxy Note 8 Android smartphone later this month. The device is expected to arrive with a force touch technology, which is very similar to Apple iPhones. The technology will resemble Galaxy S8’s 3D Touch or Force Touch.

The Investor reported that Samsung Electronics will roll out the Galaxy Note 8 with a force touch technology, also called as the 3D Touch. The South Korean tech giant will adopt the technology for the reason that its upcoming smartphone will not have a physical button.

In order for the smartphone to interact efficiently with its users, Samsung has designed its display to read the amount of pressure on the screen before it will display certain options.


Slash Gear pointed out that Galaxy Note 8’s bottom edge screen will have a pressure-sensitive strip to replace the app-switching button, back button and the home button.

Nonetheless, this is not the first time that the tech company utilized the 3D Touch technology. Samsung already applied the technology to its Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones. With this feature, users will be able to launch a hidden menu for shortcuts by putting pressure at the bottom of the mobile device’s screen.

Note 8 against other flagship devices

Meanwhile, with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 competing against Google’s Pixel 2 and Apple’s iPhone 8, the tech giant equipped the device with spectacular specs and features. However, Value Walk reported that the price of the smartphone could turn off several potential buyers.
