Sony Xperia Z6 “to copy iPhone 6S pressure-sensitive display”

Get that pinch of salt at the ready, Sony Xperia Z6 rumours have begun, with the next-generation handset tipped to run an iPhone 6S-echoing pressure-sensitive display, Digital Spy said.

With Apple's handset lines having this year introduced 3D Touch-friendly panels, which translate how hard you press into different commands, the yet-to-be-confirmed Xperia Z6 has become the latest device to be linked to similar screen tech.

That's according to unnamed sources speaking with MobiPicker, who have claimed the Sony Xperia Z5 follow-on will add the pressure-sensitive features to an improved 2560 x 1440 pixel QHD panel.

Far from the only non-Apple handset to have been linked with a pressure-understanding screen, the Huawei Mate S has already added its own Force Touch panel, while Samsung's Galaxy S7 is tipped to be following a similar path.
