    While going through the activities (with my trusty Nova Launcher), I found an interesting few entries, all with name that imply a pressure-sensing screen (screenshots below). Could this be a hidden feature in the Honor 8, or a forgotten remnant from a future or past phone equipped with the technology? I'm not sure - but let me know what you think in the comments!

    This might probably be the shortcuts available in 7.1 where you long press and the app icon in a screen and gives you the shortcuts. Not sure though, just a guess....

    Most likely available in Nova for 3D touch enabled devices.

    The Shortcuts is available in devices running 7.1. Pixel and Nexus have had the luxury to have 7.1 installed for some time now.

    Pressure sensitivity is a little different though, and requires different touch technology, it's a different input to long presses.

    Hmm... It's still interesting that the setting would be there, but with no way to access or change it.
