Apple introduced 3D Touch with the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus in 2015. The new tech changed the way users interact with the phone.
The 3D Touch technology was promoted by Apple as the “next-generation of multi-touch”, and the claim is totally true.
With the popularity of 3D Touch with the iPhones, we can safely assume that this technology will definitely be a hit. If the latest reports are to be believed, Google is currently working on introducing this feature for the upcoming Android 7.0 N.
It is going to be the next big update of the Android OS. Also, the rumor via Gizmo China has also stated that HTC is also working on the 2016 version of Nexus.
The new Nexus Smartphone is expected to feature 3D Touch. The introduction of Android N isn’t expected to be anytime soon.
However, we will try hard to find about it as much as we can. What’s more is that by the end of 2015, it was rumored that Samsung would include pressure sensitive interaction paradigm with a 3D Touch in its upcoming flagships.
The flagships referred here are already released Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge and we know that these inclusions never happened.
The Android user experience is finally going to change with the alleged arrival of 3D-Touch and Pressure sensitive display on HTC Nexus, which will be powered by Android N.
As mentioned, Google has appointed HTC for its next installment of the Nexus Smartphone. If this happens, then the expected Smartphone would be the first to implement pressure sensitive interaction using Google’s own native implementation of Apple’s 3D Touch feature within Android N.
Some reports have also stated that the other big names like Vivo, Meizu, Xiaomi and Oppo are also working hard to develop the hardware which will support 3D-Touch and pressure-sensitive display.
Companies like Gionee and Huawei have already released devices that feature pressure sensitive displays, but without native support of the OS.
