What is the pressure sensor featured on Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, and Galaxy Note9?

In order to create the vast Infinity Display, we eliminated the physical home button, instead replacing it with a pressure-sensitive virtual button that uses haptic feedback and allows the home button to hide away when using a fullscreen app. Thanks to the touchscreen technology on Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, and Galaxy Note9, all you have to do is tap where the home button would be in order to access it. To adjust the sensitivity of the home button, navigate to the Settings menu > Display > Navigation bar > Hard press Home button. Slide the bar to make it more or less sensitive.

Additionally, it’s not just the home button that’s pressure sensitive, the S Pen that comes with the Galaxy Note8 has 4096 levels of pressure for precise and accurate strokes when you’re using it.
