Alleged Galaxy S4 To Feature Touchless Gesture Control [Rumor]

Speculations on the upcoming smartphones from Samsung, Apple and Android are general issues, but about Galaxy S IV rumored to have implemented with a “floating touch” feature. Means, the unannounced Samsung’s Galaxy S IV will allow users to navigate their phones without ever touching the display.

Called it “gesture control,” the feature would be specifically helpful in situations where it would be easier to wave your hands or finger above your screen than actually touch it. According to the latest report from DDaily, Samsung Galaxy S IV will feature touchless gesture controls.

Samsung is reportedly using Atmel’s newest maXTouch S controllers, which could allow you to quickly answer a call, also see the contents of a photo gallary before you open it and scroll without any touching needed. Such touchless gestures could awefully work in a number of ways on the purported Galaxy S IV, for example to answer calls, you would pace the phone to your ear without even touching the display.


Rumors already surfaced on Galaxy S IV previously that would feature some sort of new eye tracking technology, with features called Eye Pause and Eye Scroll, which were unveiled in a recent Samsung’s patent filing. Now that, Samsung has already premiered touches navigation via the S-Pen in the Galaxy Note 2, so they no doubt have the capacity to pull this off.

When talking about Galaxy S IV, we think there would be no stylus involved. But like Pantech Vita, features gesture controls but it does using the front-facing camera, which consumes a lot battery life in a very short period of time. While Samsung is rumored to be more targeting on battery efficiency.


Samsung Galaxy S4, which come with a 4.99 inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixel, and will also feature a 13 megapixel camera. Rumored to introduce with a wireless charging ability and now with touchless gestures. Galaxy S IV is expected to be first device to use their new 8 core Exynos Octa 5 processor and will be featuring a clock speed of 1.8GHz, plus the device will come with 2GB RAM and a choice of either 16GB / 32GB pr 64GB of built-in storage capacity.
