This phone from Samsung, dubbed the Anycall Haptic, features a large touch-screen display just like the iPhone. But it also enables users to feel clicks, vibrations and other tactile input. In all, it provides the user with 22 kinds of touch sensations. Those sensations explain the use of the term haptic in the name. Haptic is from the Greek “haptesthai,” meaning to touch. As an adjective, it means relating to or based on the sense of touch. As a noun, usually used in a plural form (haptics), it means the science and physiology of the sense of touch.
