Samsung Galaxy S7 Will Reportedly Charge Faster, Have Pressure-Sensitive Screen

Image (2) samsung1.jpg for post 10026287Back in September, Apple unveiled its more responsive “3D Touch” display for the iPhone 6S, so it should come as little surprise that Samsung may have something similar in its back pocket for the upcoming launch of its flagship Galaxy phone.

This is according to the Wall Street Journal, which reports that the Galaxy S7 — slated to be released in March — will feature a pressure-sensitive display, along with faster charging capabilities, and possibly a retinal scanner.

According to the Journal’s sources, the S7 display won’t be that different from the iPhone 6S, allowing the user to interact with their phone in different ways depending on how they press or tap the screen.

If you’re a Samsung user who is always having to find a place to plug in your phone for a recharge, you might be more interested in the Journal’s claim that the S7’s new USB Type-C port could get you a full day’s worth of battery power in fewer than 30 minutes.

For folks annoyed by the S6’s main camera, which sticks out of the back of the otherwise slender device, the Journal says the S7 will include an improved camera that is flush with the back panel.
