Samsung’s next flagship smartphone is on the way.The latest rumour says the Galaxy S IV can be controlled by touchless gestures instead of regular taps and swipes. 

The report comes from the Korean publication DDaily.

So what do we mean by touchless controls?

One example is you’ll be able to answer your phone just by holding it up to your ear when it rings. There’s no need to tap an “answer” button.

The touch-free system is supposed to mimic the Galaxy Note II’s Air View, a sensor that recognises when the stylus is over the screen, but a newer sensor would eliminate the need for a stylus, reports Phandroid.

Here’s a list of the gestures from Geeky Gadgets blog:
