Huawei’s Mate 8 could have Force Touch

ZTE’s Axon Mini may have been the first phone showcased to have a Force Touch aka pressure sensitive touchscreen, but it seems as though other Chinese OEMs are keen on having the feature on their phones too.

Huawei’s next in line powerhouse (believed to be the Mate 8) will have Force Touch, if notorious leakster Evan Blass aka evleaks is to be believed. evleaks tweeted the leaked photo with a caption “Launching at IFA on 9/2. Features force touch. Branding currently unknown (D-series?).”

Which makes you wonder. D-series? Or will it be the Mate 8?

Another school of thought is to place this leaked phone in the shoes of the upcoming Nexus which will be Huawei-made. But an IFA launch for a phone like that isn’t possible, one would believe.

A leaked hands on video of a device uncannily similar to the one in this picture surfaced also, a few days back.

Do you think Force Touch aka pressure sensitive touchscreens are here to stay for mobile phones?
