VIDEO: Official Samsung GALAXY S4 Hands-On

Samsung's cutting-edge next generation handset device

Air View allows you to quickly preview emails, pictures, videos or a web browser by just hovering over the S4's screen with your finger. Previewing scenes in movies by suspending your index finger above the video timeline quickly becomes second nature.

In terms of everyday convenience, Speed Dial is one of the handiest applications of Samsung's Air View tech on the S4, allowing you to quickly access your friends' numbers by hovering your finger over the keypad.

The official Samsung S View Cover has been cleverly designed to allow you to use Air View to view and answer incoming calls by swiping your finger across the cover's transparent viewing panel. Highly practical!

Last but by no means least, for TV and movie fans, Smart Pause is a very cool feature that lets you control the S4's screen by the direction in which you are looking. Look away from the display and the video you are viewing automatically pauses. Plus, Samsung WatchON transforms your S4 into the perfect IO remote to control your TV and other devices directly from your smartphone.
