Galaxy Note 8 tipped to come with a pressure-sensitive display


Not that it should come as a huge surprise, but Korean media is reporting today that the Galaxy Note 8 will sport a pressure-sensitive "force touch" display. Samsung already equipped the Galaxy S8 and S8+ with such a tech, but in a limited execution only where the virtual home button lies, probably for those nostalgically inclined fans that miss the signature physical home key.

Now, whether the Note 8 will employ the same limited force touch solution, or the whole display will be pressure-sensitive, like on the recent iPhones, remains to be seen, but previous rumors suggested that the entirety of the Note 8's screen will be able to react to the force of your taps and presses. 

The phablet is expected to be announced on August 23, and hit the shelves in Korea September 15, bearing a 6.3" display, dual camera and no less than 6GB of RAM. We will be live at the Note 8 unveiling, and relay all the excitement, force-touching the phablet's screen to oblivion to tell you if it clicks.
