Touchscreen on the Leica CL?

The rear monitor on the Leica CL (Typ 7323) is touch sensitive. This feature is convenient for adjusting camera settings and reviewing images, and – just like a touchscreen on a smartphone – makes operations easy, quick, and intuitive. Commands can be entered by tapping, swiping, and sliding on the rear screen, instead of having to use dials and buttons on the camera body.

In terms of size and resolution, the rear LCD of the Leica CL measures 3.0 inches and offers a resolution of 1,040,000 dots.
