Hello. Just picked up a 13 gen small laptop.
Is there any movement on getting a touchscreen on the market place so I could upgrade my laptop?
Or does framework not intend on doing that. I already understand the cable has the data pins required for a touchscreen screen. I am simply asking the Framework employees here if they are or not working on that. And if yes, a possible timeline.
We, forum users, do not know. Consider subscribing to the Framework newsletter so you’re informed of any new developments.
Note that the cable does not have touchscreen pins / signals. You can not plug in a touchscreen using that cable. The motherboard connector has touchscreen signals, but those signals are not carried over on the cable. The Framework-13 display uses a common 40-pin four lane eDP connector, and this does not allow for touchscreen signals.
