Air View and Air Gesture, new features of Samsung Galaxy S4
Samsung unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S4 in the middle of great expectations. For months there has been talk of this smartphone, months in which we’ve heard plenty of speculation about its technical performance, design and other details. Finally, the company raised the curtain on New York and already know all the features of the Samsung Galaxy S4, that otherwise largely coincide with the rumors of the past few weeks. One of the most interesting points raised in the presentation was the litany of clever features that integrates the new toy of the Koreans, if the previous model already had several interesting features, his successor takes this idea to a new level.
Among the unique features of the Samsung Galaxy S4 find two very interesting features that are inspired by the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Both allow terminal handling without us having to get to touch the screen, or simply waving our finger gestures can perform some actions. The first is Air View, this feature is already present in the Note 2 but in this case we do not need a stylus to make it work. The Air View of Samsung Galaxy S4 only requires finger get closer to the screen to show previews, for example if we go to a photo album display a popup with the content and thus we can see at a glance what’s inside without having to whet albums.
Air View also works in video playback, if we place the finger on the progress bar can see a preview of the video to jump to the moment that most interested us. But that’s not all, also used to read the content of emails and even phone contact when we go to type a number. Then there is Air Gesture, this function is similar but their goal is to move through menus making gestures on the screen, without ever touching it. For example serves to scroll through photos or move through the various home screens.
Besides the software features, the Samsung Galaxy S4 has a very full sheet as usual at the terminals of the brand and specifically the range Galaxy S. To begin carrying a Super AMOLED screen of five inches, with FullHD resolution and 441 ppi density. Added to this is a system that increases sensitivity and allows us to manage the terminal even relocate gloves. Other highlights of the camera is thirteen megapixels, sensor type is BSI and has interesting features like Dual Shot (uses two cameras to create compositions with two images captured). It also has a quad-core processor at 1.9 gigahertz and two GB of RAM to ensure smooth performance.
