At this stage it is very difficult to predict what the Samsung Galaxy S8 will look it but it may come in two flavours. Reports have suggested so far that the device will have a 5.7-inch and 6.2-inch Display. The latter could be the Galaxy S8 Edge.

Samsung is focusing solely on jumping back to the competition with its Galaxy S8 handset in 2017 after the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. Hence, the South Korean tech giant is looking to pack the device with the best of specs and features to win back its lost customer base.

People are talking a lot about the force touch technology that may find its way to the Galaxy S8 smartphone. Apple has already adopted this technology and calls it the 3D Touch. The tech allows pressure sensitive features to be added to a smartphone screen, writes Tech Times.

As per a report by The Investor, Samsung wants to make the force touch technology a main feature in the Galaxy S8 handset. However, the company may not go all out at one go with the force touch feature. It is planning to start small and then go big. However, the force touch feature will be present in the Samsung flagship devices including Galaxy S8.

Force touch-screens tell users how hard or how soft a user is pressing the display that allows for numerous scenarios to play out. Apart from Apple’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 7, Huawei Mate S has also adopted the force touch feature. Thus, Samsung Galaxy S8 won’t be the first Android device to sport such a technology.

Even Google is looking forward to incorporating the system into its devices as Android 7.1 Nougat has the tools to support such a feature. Stay tuned on IBT AU for more updates on the Samsung Galxy S8 smartphone.
