Analogue 3D Touch will appear In Android Q: 3D Touch technology in Apple smartphones appeared in 2015, along with the release of iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. After that, some companies, including Google, worked on analogs of this technology in their devices. It seems that with the release of the Android Q operating system, 3D Touch will start talking again.
What does it mean?
In the second beta version of Android Q found a mention of a new feature Deep Press. Like 3D Touch, it allows you to determine the pressure on the display. That is, instead of holding your finger on the screen for a while, you just need to push it harder.
The documentation states that the enhanced clicks will be used to call the context menu of applications, as well as quick access to certain Android functions.
However, it is not yet clear how this will work. For example, in the iPhone for the full operation of the 3D Touch, there are special sensors. Whether they will need Google is unknown, perhaps the company will be able to do with one software.
By the way, Apple itself recently refuses this technology, and many users consider it unnecessary. For example, in the iPhone XR, there is no such function.
