Touch is the new standard for UI. Disadvantage is the lack of feedback other than with LED or changes in display. Haptics will give confirmation to the user but in the current solutions with LRA and solenoid quite limited and add components (costs). Haptic Touch will bring a high quality feedback since the sensor is used as both sensor and actuator. Haptic Touch will be the next generation of touch.
