Nokia's next flagship may come with '3D Touch' technology
#1

You may have written Nokia off as an industry non-
factor, but rest assured that the company appears
to be on track to releasing its next generation of
mobile goodies. About a week ago, serial leakster,
evleaks, tweeted a number of alleged codenames
for several upcoming Nokia phones, including
'Goldfinger' and “Monepenny'
, both of which are currently thought to be the first
handsets to come with Windows Phone 8.1 Blue out
of the box. While these are codenames, there's
some speculation that the former (Goldfinger) could
be the flagship-apparent.
Apart from this dubious revelation, The Verge is
citing people with knowledge of Nokia's plans,
suggesting that Goldfinger may come with a rather
interesting feature, called 3D Touch internally.
3D Touch is best explained by a comparison with
Samsung's proprietary Air Gestures , or said plainly:
off-the-screen gestures to control your Lumia (or
whatever it ends up as). This is a particular area to
which Nokia appears to have dedicated years of
R&D and cash, so we're hoping that the Finnish
manufacturer won't simply contend itself with an Air
Gestures clone, but would rather seek to improve
upon the idea. Unfortunately, for the time being, this
does not appear to be case, as the above-
mentioned sources claim that flipping and scrolling
are the kind of gestures currently under
consideration. Apparently, it'll be possible to
perform these not only from the top of the devices,
but also to the sides.
Yet another gimmick? It would appear too early to
call.
