The next Samsung Galaxy smartphone could charge faster and feature a touchscreen sensitive to the pressure applied by a user’s thumb or finger when it’s revealed next year.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the electronics giant’s Galaxy S7 will include a display measuring the amount of force a user applies when pressing on the screen. It’s similar to the 3D Touch feature found on Apple’s iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.

The report also says the S7 will include a USB-C port allowing users to fully charge the phone in 30 minutes. Samsung is also considering whether to introduce a retina scanner.

Samsung is expected to reveal the S7 in March, which falls in line with recent Galaxy smartphone unveilings from the company. Samsung would also reveal the next model of its curved smartphone, called the Galaxy S7 Edge.
