Well it didn’t take long for someone to take the Storm 2 apart and check out the insides. After seeing a video describing the new screen technology in the Storm 2, we now have confirmation of what the insides look like.
As you can see from the above image, the Storm 2 seems to use the same technology as the Storm 1, only bigger and multiplied by 4. The original BlackBerry Storm touchscreen sat on top of a single contact point, which is relatively small. The Storm 2 has four contact points which are evenly distributed around the device. This explains how the multi-press system functions.
While it’s not obvious if the Piezo electricity technology described by the YouTuber is actually being used, we can see how the Storm 2 will react much differently than the first Storm.
One thing is for sure, we’re all looking forward to getting our hands on this device and testing the new touchscreen interface for ourselves.
