Hands-on displays Kinect-like “3D Touch” in canceled Lumia 2014




History is only later write. Microsoft canceled a high-end phone that was ready for release in late 2014. Now, the first ‘review’ published this phone, which distinguished itself with 3D Touch, a way to control the screen by hovering above it.

Nokia pioneered inter alia in the field of wireless charging, optical image stabilization , oversampling with the camera and screens to operate with gloves, but it still had a renovation ready for the next Lumia: a touchscreen that is so sensitive that it operated by it to float a few centimeters away with your fingers.

The screen has sensors to detect whether the user releases a finger hovering above the screen. As a result, it is possible to control a part of the interface, without touching it. The technology is a bit like ‘floating touch’, a feature of the Sony Xperia Sola from 2012. However, the Xperia Sola only supports touch with a finger. Additionally, the Lumia detects how users grip the phone.

There are various applications for the technique can be found in the software, writes Windows Central. Thus there is a lock on the screen rotation so long as the user has fixed the device in the same way. The screen stays on as long as the user holds in his hand the smartphone. In addition, it is possible to record a phone call by sweeping across the screen.

Additionally, several apps would function, who afterwards striking name 3D Touch was going to get, go to support. On the start screen you can see how the tiles waves and when the hand approaches, tiles can ‘explode’ and show up to eight different tiles. According to Central Windows Microsoft has canceled the phone, because both users and developers do not understand the concept of different touchscreen.

The phone has a 5.5 “LCD with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. The housing is around 14×7,5cm great. He has a camera with a maximum resolution of around twenty megapixels, but shoots into the software based on Windows Phone 8.1 he takes on a maximum of eight megapixels. Despite the great camera module at the back, he has, in contrast to the Lumia 1020, no xenon flash. That camera module is required due to the optical image stabilization. the design is largely made of metal, with a bottom of plastic material.

In December 2014 it became clear that Microsoft’s McLaren as the prototype was called, had been canceled . The recently released a year later high-end appliances in the form of the Lumia 950 and 950 XL. The name 3D Touch is now being used by Apple for the pressure-sensitive screen of the iPhone 6s series.
