Force Touch launched on the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus last year and although some Android manufacturers have also tried the technology - like the Huawei with the Mate S - it's still a feature mostly reserved for the top rung of iPhones. But now a way to bring similar technology to any smartphone has been found.
Researchers at the University of Michigan have found a way to add pressure sensitive functionality by using ultrasonic waves.
It means you can apply extra pressure to the screen, but it's not exclusive to the display - if you squeeze the body of the phone it will also pick it up.
The speaker on the phone pushes out an ultrasound covering the 18-24 kHz range – which the human ear can not pick up, but your dog may react – and the microphone will look for changes in the sound.
The phone can then work out how much pressure is being applied, where and what you'd like the phone to do.
Yu-Chih Tung, one of the creators of Force Phone, said, "I think we're offering a natural interface, like how you turn a knob.
"It's the next step forward from a basic touch interface and it can complement other gestured communication channels and voice."
One of Force Phone's creators refers to the tech as extra vocabulary between you and your phone as well.
What functionality the technology can do for your phone isn't decided though. For example, you may be able to open up your messaging app by squeezing the phone hard around the edges.
Force Phone means a brand new technology won't be exclusive to high-end and expensive smartphones and it's great the functionality could be opened up to those with cheaper Androids.
Just don't expect it to come out for your phone just yet. The research is set to be presented to a conference at the end of June but there's no word of a full release.
