It was barely one month ago that we got some stimulating news from Synaptics. When it comes to any type of touch-oriented human interface solutions including fingerprint ID, touch screens, touch pads, and so on, Synaptics is a notable company out there, in case you have not heard about the company before.
Synaptics uploaded the demo of a tech it is developing, hailed as ClearForce. This demo is a pressure-sensitive tech, much similar o the Force Touch from Apple or 3D Touch on iPhone 6S or 6S Plus.
It is now becoming understandable that this kind of interface will not be restricted to Apple's smartphones for long. The Mate S from Huawei features a more expensive variant that will feature Force Touch and rumors also reveals that the next flagship of Xiaomi – Mi 5, will also have a screen that is pressure-sensitive.
What we are actually experiencing now is yet another rumor revolving round the next Mi as well as its potential incorporation to the new tech. There are whispers that Xiaomi will be getting the Synaptics ClearForce tech for its new flagship, according to recent news from the Chinese blog. This simply implies that the Mi 5 will likely be able to perform more than just showing you a full screen picture when you press harder on its thumbnail.
This is a new development that we are all anticipating to see, particularly for more practical applications for a pressure-responsive screen. There is more competition that will encourage some further improvement. As a result, there is nothing remaining than for us to wait patiently and hope that the rumors are true!
