It looks like the folks at ZTE have beaten Apple to the punch when it comes to rolling out a smartphone with Force Touch technology. While many people have assumed that the upcoming iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus would would be first off the blocks where Force Touch is concerned, ZTE might be the winner here, pouring cold water on Apple’s party by introducing the ZTE Axon Mini.
The ZTE Axon Mini was unveiled earlier today, where it sports a 5.2” Super AMOLED display that comes with Force Touch capabilities to boot. Just what is Force Touch, you ask? Well, it basically is a display that can recognize just how hard one is pressing down on it. In other words, this device is capable of performing some very different functions with a tap on the same location of the glass.
For instance, tapping the display softly might play back a video, while a harder tap would be able to raise the volume. Officially speaking, the ZTE Axon Mini will be launched this September as it arrives in silver, gold, orange and pink shades. ZTE has kept the rest of the hardware specifications secret, which means we will still have to agonizingly wait for something official to be revealed in a couple of months’ time.
