Samsungs latest patent suggests in-air gestures could be just around the corner

Samsung Galaxy Note 9

The smartphone's current interface relies heavily on taps and scanning, but Samsung's new patent application proposes a new way to interact with the phone so that it does not touch the screen.

The new method described is completely based on atmospheric movement and gestures. Specifically, a compatible device will be equipped with a new sensor that can recognize movement. When this occurs, the sensor automatically activates the gesture based interface. These gestures include new spaces to simulate left-to-right or top-to-bottom dragging to scroll through the page, as well as traditional taps. Furthermore, covering the screen completely turns off the device.

In general, Samsung seems to have a very specific customer group potentially able to profit from it. South Korean giants say that touchscreen panels are viable options in almost all scenarios, but in countries where extremely low temperatures are common in winter, their usefulness will decline significantly. In addition, the company also points out that this feature may be useful for drivers. Ultimately, it is dangerous and impractical to touch the screen of a smartphone or integrated entertainment system.
This patent is not the first thing in the air gesture was suggested – rival Apple will also develop its own application – but this suggests that Samsung's options may be imminent There.
