SANTA CLARA, California – Synaptics Inc. (NASDAQ: SYNA), a
leading developer of human interface solutions, today announced that the new
Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 will be the first smartphones in the world
to use a new advanced multi-touch experience based on the Synaptics ClearPad
capacitive touchscreen sensing technology.
Synaptics ClearPad Series 3, the premier mobile touch solution
for premium high end smartphones, has raised the bar for high performance touch
on the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 with the introduction of support for gloves and
Previously, people were unable to use their smartphone
touchscreens with gloved fingers or long fingernails, requiring them to remove
their gloves, or awkwardly position their fingers with long nails in order to
operate their phones. For the first time ever, ClearPad Series 3 technology
instantly optimizes the touch experience by automatically detecting the presence
of skin, gloved fingers, or fingernails, giving users a seamless multi-touch
experience regardless of input methods.

pioneer new technologies that improve the smartphone user experience,” said
Kevin Shields, senior vice president, Smart Devices, Nokia. “Nokia has been a

Nokia PureMotion HD+. With better than HD resolution, overdrive technology for
keeping moving images pixel-perfect and sunlight enhancements for easy viewing
even in the brightest sunlight, the 4.5-inch display of the Lumia 920 produces a
totally immersive experience. PureMotion displays are super-sensitive with any
touch interaction, enabled by the ClearPad Series 3 technology.
“We are excited to participate with Nokia as they unveil their
first Windows Phone 8 devices by enabling advanced features such as gloved
