This is how Air View and Air Gesture work on the Samsung Galaxy S4

Samsung Galaxy S4 02

It was last week when  Samsung presented one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year. We refer to the Samsung Galaxy S4 , one of the mainstays of the Korean catalog. It addition to having a hardware high range ( 5 - inch display , processor eight - core and 13 - megapixel camera ), the new flagship of Samsung comes with a host of intelligent features that will delight the most demanding users. We say it by tools like Scroll or Smart Pausethat allow us to control web pages, email messages or video playback thanks to facial recognition technology . And although this function occupies a very important central part in the device's technical sheet, the Samsung Galaxy S4 also incorporates tools such as Air View and Air Gesture . Do you want to know how they work?

The PhoneArena medium has published some videos that show the main functions of this device and specifically the Air View and Air Gesture . Both functions are inspired by the operation of the Samsung Galaxy Note , a device that allows us to manage some functions by simply gesturing above the panel. The first feature called Air View , offers us the opportunity to review our photo albums and videos gesturing above the screen. It is a preview function that allows us to review the graphic content through a pop-up window. This function, as we said, is available in theSamsung Galaxy Note , although in that case, it can also be operated through a stylus or touch pointer , commercially called S Pen .

But this is not the only tool that Samsung puts at our fingertips. The following function has been called Air Gesture and as its name suggests, it allows you to interact a few millimeters from the screen through gestures, without touching it. Just move your finger close to the panel to manage different functions as diverse as reading an email, checking received messages, searching for a contact, viewing the different home screens or even typing a phone number. In this way, performing certain routine tasks will be much more agile and comfortable, at times when we have to attend to our messages or daily tasks with very little time.

Customers who decide to purchase this Samsung Galaxy S4 from the end of April (which is when it will be in the Spanish market) will have the opportunity to get a smartphone equipped with many other functions, such as Dual Camera, Group Play, Sound & Shot, Drama Shot, Story Album or Samsung Hub , to make montages with both cameras, take photos with sound, shoot in different modes or share and organize our snapshots in an easier way.

The device also incorporates ChatON , Samsung's popular instant messaging service ; S Translator , the translation tool; Smart Pause , the function that stops the video automatically, when we are not watching. Finally, users will be able to use their phone as an advanced GPS navigator and they will do so thanks to services such as S Voice Drive and those who are most concerned about their health, control and monitor the functioning of their body through an application as interesting as S Health .
