It was loudly rumored feature for S6 but due to some problem in testing, and after S8 launch we are quite sure that flexible display is just a rumour. By looking at their past track records, we are super optimistic that company will bring it in Galaxy S8 for sure. You might see three models like S8, S8 Edge, and S8 Flexi. Price for Flexi would be a bit higher than first two, but worth every single penny you spend on that.
Clear Force Touch
This will be a feature that Samsung will be seeking to introduce to counter Apple’s 3D touch which gained much popularity when it was released. The Clear Force Touch feature by Samsung will see the phone detect the pressure of the finger being applied on the display and presents different options.
