Everybody is aware of the rivalry between Apple and Samsung that even lead to legal battles. This battle for dominance in the global market has turned out into a game of clones. Samsung is set to take a leaf off Apple’s books for the next version of its flagship Galaxy smartphone. According to WSJ, expect Galaxy S7 to have a pressure sensitive display when it is launched next spring.

On the other hand, Apple is going to introduce its very own pressure sensitive 3D Touch tech on its iPhone 6S, its current flagship phone. This additional interaction layer on the iPhone will allow users to press down harder on the device if they want to view content. In short, there will no longer be a need to tap the screen several times.

The new, more sensitive touchscreen tech of Apple did not emerge from out a vacuum but it was tested by Cupertino on the Apple watch, a wearable device. The technology is now being called 3D Touch, a fancier and more sophisticated moniker. The 3D Touch advantage represents a marginal hardware gap vs. Android devices with relatively few iOS apps getting the chance to make interesting use of the technology.

This same hardware feature catch-up race played out when Apple added the fingerprint reader to its iPhone 5S in September 2013 when Samsung was planning to put the fingerprint scanner on its flagship device the following spring.

On the software side, Apple has always been accused of appropriating features from Android to be added to their iOS. According to WSJ sources, expect Samsung to add a new high speed charging USB Type-C port to Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The port is supposed to deliver a full day’s charge in less than 30 minutes or even less. This is a very significant addition considering that it will solve most the customer’s problems regarding battery life.

If you are going to give away a Samsung or Apple device this Christmas, you can opt for the Paper Mart tulle for sprucing up gift packaging. An expensive gift certainly deserves the best kind of packaging provided by tulle fabric.
