Samsung’s Galaxy S IV to feature floating touch technology and green PHOLED material AMOLED display


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.

    The “Air View” is the main feature I like about the GNote2 and its SPen. These are two features I was hoping for with the SGS4: AMOLED Screen and if not an SPen the Air View feature. Now your finger will act more like a mouse than a stylus!

    And the KICKER: The Galaxy S4 will as a bonus have a pad that will enable the device owner to measure blood pressure, and blood sugar levels as well as other signs regarding health. The monitoring of certain physiological signs would definitely represent an useful application for all customers from children to the elderly.

    The overall versatility of the Galaxy S4 will revolutionize the gadget market in 2013.

    You can ONLY imagine what the GALAXY NOTE 3 will be like later in Sept/Oct 2013…..The rest I have NO COMMENT….One thing is for sure NOTHING will ever beat Samsung in the android landscape that’s for sure…
