Despite incredible performance and top cameras, there is one technical aspect where the top of the Android range does not excel: the haptic feedback. You will certainly have had an expensive phone in your hands but with a vibration motor not up to par. Xiaomi has taken steps forward with the latest top of the range with the introduction of Mi Haptic technology, but OnePlus e OPPO I'm still behind. Fortunately for phone makers, Qualcomm is working alongside Google to improve the vibration on Android smartphones.

Haptic feedback will become reality on Xiaomi, OnePlus and OPPO thanks to Qualcomm

With the advent of the future Android 12, Google developers are studying the integration of haptic feedback into the operating system. This would thus allow the various Xiaomi, OnePlus, OPPO, vivo, Realme and so on to integrate it into their respective UI without further development work. For those who do not know what we are talking about, "haptic" indicates that type of tactile sensation designed to simulate real physical contact. Rather than relying on a single vibration for any interaction, this technique causes each interaction to have a vibration effect that is as close to reality as possible.

The system that Google is developing provides for the combination with the audio department, with the vibration that would be able to automatically synchronize with the sound part. In addition to Google, Qualcomm is also working to make such a novelty synergistic also on the hardware side. Precisely for this reason a collaboration with Lofelt was born, to develop a "universal touch framework natively run on Snapdragon platforms". The creation of real API libraries would thus allow Xiaomi, OnePlus, OPPO and so on to use them and improve the "vibrant" sector of their phones.
