Xiaomi Mi5 may land with a pressure-sensitive Force Touch display

I wonder what kind of differences can tell these patents apart from each other. Apple, Samsung and now Xiaomi not to forget Huawei; each concentrating patents on "force touch".

Trademarks are used when it comes to names
Xiaomi and Xiaomi probably won't ship to the US, so no issues
Samsung will call it something else
It would be interesting to see a teardown comparison to see how the others compare to Apple's implementation
And if it infringes Apple's patents, probably won't though, these companies have been trying to do pressure sensitivity for several years now

BTW someone has made a proof of concept of 3D Force Touch on Android using the barometer
Its using the barometer, which would be more accurate than area/time which the Force Touch Xposed mod uses
But it wouldn't work if your phone isn't air tight, should work with water resistant phones like the Xperia Zs and S5
Obviously not as good as Apple/Synaptics's, but it would be cool for people with older water resistant phones

Do not trust Oppomart.
I buy two time from oppomart first time they sent me a new phone, second time a used phone, I sent back and they stole me 400 euro on refound.
“I’m sorry the packet arrived empty are you sure you put the phone inside?”
I buy from aliexpress and pandawill, it never happen something like this.

Everyone is readying a pressure sensitive screen in the Android camp but where is Google is release APIs etc.

Not quite correct Techielover, the APIs are available since API Level 5 under Android 2.0 Eclair which was released in November 2009
Search for "public final float getPressure (int pointerIndex)" if you want to look it up yourself.
