Nokia’s Upcoming Lumia Smartphones Will Offer 3D Touch Capability
While some experts have already written off Nokia as a mobile industry non-factor, the company is making a good progress with its latest generation Nokia models. The Lumia 1520 is worthy of a place at the top of smartphone hierarchy. A few days ago, @evleaks, the Twitter-based leakster, has unveiled new codenames to be used by upcoming devices, such as the Moneypenny and Goldfinger.
These devices could be the first with the new Windows Phone 8.1 Blue OS preinstalled out of the box. The Goldfinger is quite likely a flagship model and it may be equipped with 3D Touch capability.
It could be quite comparable with Samsung’s Air Gestures, which allows users to navigate and control the interface without touching the display. Nokia has dedicated plenty of effort and money to develop this capability, so hopefully, the end product won’t be a clone of Air Gesture.
It has also been reported that Microsoft is working on a virtual assistant with Siri-like capability, known as the “Cortana”. It is expected to be a major enhancement introduced by the Windows Phone 8.1 operating system. We have also heard that Nokia’s next photography-centric device will also be equipped the famous 41Mp PureView camera.
