Event begin input touch does not appear to fire off correctly on laptop touch screens

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open editor on a laptop with a touch screen
  2. Open the level blueprint
  3. Create an On Begin input touch and connect a print string
  4. Open the project settings and set the input to use mouse clicks for touch
  5. Play in editor
  6. Touch and hold
  7. Notice that there is no print string
  8. While holding move your finger
  9. Notice that the print string fires off

Expected: The print sting would fire off as soon as the screen is touched
Result:The touch fires off more like a touch end rather than a touch begin
