LG V30 said to sport a pressure-sensitive TouchSense display, with animated UI to match

Not to be outdone by Samsung, LG is planning to introduce a pressure-sensitive display on the upcoming V30 phablet, tip supply chain sources out of Korea today. Previously, it was reported 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.
V30 goes, though, well, it's more likely the former, as Immersion, the company behind Apple's Force Touch tech, recently bragged that it has partnered with LG for employing its TouchSense haptic solution on the V30:What's not clear for the Note 8 wonder of nature, is whether its rumored 3D Touch panel will be pressure-sensitive throughout the surface, or only in a limited function area like on the S8. As far as the
TouchSense apparently distinguishes between many levels and patterns of pressure, and has fine-tuned haptic motor responses for LG to play with. On the V30, for instance, Immersion says that pressing the snap button in the camera app will feel like clicking a DSLR shutter, or that adjusting the manual camera settings will fell like rotating a knob. Immersion's haptic feedback will also be used when dismissing notifications, or changing home screens on the V30, so we can't wait to test its pressure-sensitive display out.

Note 8 and V30 are my to-get phones this fall. One is a productivity monster and the other is a multimedia beast.

Oh, but I can: none of them is going to be what th said, they are going to be 2 little tablets with some functions (just like S, and iPhones, and every other conceivable smartphone are). A productivity mobile monster - by today standards - is a 13-15" laptop with i7x soc and at least 32 GB of ram. A multimedia mobile beast is a 17" laptop (or maybe a 23" double display one) with the same top internals. No phone can be like that (for now) :).

Samsung Pay is a big factor for me right now to in choosing between the S8 or Pixel 2. If I go for the Pixel then I'll probably end up getting a Gear S2 Classic on Amazon just so I can continue to use Samsung Pay unless Samsung will be able to bring it over to over phones like they talked about a couple weeks ago.

That's a bit of a exaggeration. Both phones can handle multimedia and productivity equally. The only advantage to Note has in those 2 categories is the S-Pen if you feel the need to write down a couple things

Dig deeper and you will find QuadDAC, Studio grade sound recording app, more control over manual camera/video in V30 and that translated to more multimedia oriented than Note 8. But yeah, both are shaping to be two of the most solid offering this season.

Pretty much useless, from my perspective, if the do not release this in the UK. If they do it rather complicates things..if they don't it will probably be the Pixel 2 XL for me.....using the S8 plus so no real hankering for Note 8.
