3D Touch-like features may become standard on upcoming Android versions. 

According to an industry insider, Google is planning to incorporate 3D Touch-like features on Android. In addition, the Nexus phones for this year - rumored to be made by HTC - are said to have these features. Chinese phone makers such as Xiaomi, Meizu, Oppo and Vivo are also developing pressure-sensitive displays for their devices.

Research firm IHS predicts that 25% of new smartphones this year will come with pressure-sensitive displays and it is likely that Synaptics will play a major role with three of its new ClearPad discrete touch controller solutions. Samsung and Xiaomi reportedly have patented their own technologies to implement a pressure-sensitive display.
