Yesterday, @evleaks revealed that the James Bond-inspired products — Moneypenny and Goldfinger — could be the first smartphones running on Windows Phone Blue update. According to The Verge, of the two, Goldfinger is the flagship device and both will offer gesture-based controls called ‘3D Touch.’
3D Touch is said to function similar to what Nokia already provides on the Nokia Glance app. It will use hardware sensors to detect gestures on the front and sides of the device. Some of the gestures that will be supported include scrolling and flipping, which enables one to navigate through the OS without physically touching the display.
This feature is similar to what Samsung already offers. On the Samsung Galaxy S4, one can use Air Gestures to scroll through webpages, skip music tracks and accept phone calls.
