But as per a recent revelation, it seems Samsung isn't pinning much hope on its upcoming flagship. South Korea’s Electronic Times recently reported that the global smartphone giant is planning to produce just 5 million units of the Galaxy S7 as part of its initial production run. Whether this has something to do with the launch of LG's G5 or HTC's One M10 or even the Honor 8 around the same time is anybody's guess.

Even though iPhone users are now able to make use of 3D Touch technology in their iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices, Samsung's followers may get to enjoy similar experiences with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge phones. As per 9to5Mac, 'Samsung's new display will be based on Synaptic's recently-launched ClearPad 3700 force-sensing touchscreen controller which will enable 'variable speed scrolling, new ways to zoom and pan over pictures, new contextual menus, and other features.'
