Touchscreen on the Sony RX100 II?

The rear monitor on the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is not touch sensitive. All interactions with the camera's firmware, thus, have to be entered through buttons and dials on the camera body. While this method of operating a camera might not be as intuitive as a touch interface and requires the photographer to memorize the functions of the external controls, it avoids accidental setting changes from unitentional contacts with the screen.

The LCD is flexibly attached to the body to allow for odd-angle shots.
