Samsung Galaxy S7 may include Force Touch and retina scanner
Rumors that the inevitable Galaxy S7 may ship with USB Type-C and a pressure-sensitive touchscreen are not new. There have also been other speculations about a unibody design made of magnesium alloy.
Now, sources close to Wall Street Journal are also saying that the next Samsung flagship may carry Synaptics ClearForce technology in response to Apple's 3D Touch on the current iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. This wouldn't be the first time we've heard such a rumor, either. The same source claims that the USB 3.1 Type-C port can charge the phone in just half an hour.
Perhaps even more noteworthy is that Samsung may be considering retina scanners on its next flagship models and a MicroSD slot for expandable storage. Nonetheless, WSJ is noting that the manufacturer may be stepping away from a number of planned features for now.
