Touchscreen on the YI M1?

The rear monitor on the YI M1 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 YI M1 measures 3.0 inches and offers a resolution of 1,040,000 dots.
