Nokia's next flagship may come with '3D Touch' technology and Windows Phone 8.1 (Blue)
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.
