Huawei released the world’s first smartphone with a screen that responds to the force of depression, and Apple popularized this technology in mobile devices, but it turns out that this way of testing in 2013, Nokia tested – two years before the appearance of solutions from other companies. The network has information on the prototype of an inexpensive smartphone, codenamed Midas, in which the Finnish manufacturer tested the technology of perceiving strong pressures on the screen.
Midas was running Windows Phone and was built on the basis of the Snapdragon S4 processor. It had a 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 1280×768 pixels, 1GB of RAM and a 32GB drive.
It is interesting that in Nokia smartphones 3D Touch technology allowed to control the device not with the help of strong presses on the screen, and not touching it at all. The user could drive a finger about 1 cm from the screen, moving objects.
It is reported that Nokia has faced a number of problems, so this technology has not appeared in commercial devices.
