Not too long ago we heard rumors that Samsung would implement touchless gestures for screen navigation on the Galaxy S IV. Well, the latest rumors from SamMobile say that we’re definitely going to see that floating technology on March 14th. This won’t be a first for Samsung, as we’ve seen Sony dabble with floating screen tech, and Samsung even uses it for Air View with the S-Pen in the Galaxy Note 2, but rest assured, it’s going to be an awesome feature.
In addition to the floating technology, we also have some information on the screen technology that Samsung’s going with for the S IV. According to SamMobile’s insider, we’ll be seeing “green PHOLED” screens, a new type of AMOLED screen, make its debut. It uses a green-yellow matrix that’s supposedly 25% more efficient than what’s currently being used, so we can expect some battery life improvements. It will also be a full-HD 1080p display, of course.
We’ve heard about the touchless tech, the fantastic screen, the new Smart features, and hardware specs to stay relevant for several years. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many rumors pop up about a phone before its release, but if even half of these turn out to be true, Samsung might spend another year at the top of the OEM dog pile.
