This is Samsung's ingenious idea to avoid virtual buttons on the screen

Every user of Samsung is already waiting for Android 9.0 Pie with the Samsung Experience mask , a firmware that to the main smartphones of the Korean giant, surely implementing gestural control of which they have already given too many clues

Not in vain, if you have a Samsung and hate the virtual buttons because they take away space on your infinite screen, do not go far because we have very good news for you, taken directly from the latest firmware for the

This same feature will arrive natively to most of the Samsung range when updates to Android Pie are released, but for now what we can say is that the Galaxy A7 already has a function that completely hides the navigation bar and allows you to use Very simple gestures in place, without too great changes in experience and virtually no learning curve for the user.

Buttons that are not there but they are, so you can access them without seeing them …

The guys from Samsung do not want to change too much face to the operating system experience we already know, so instead of complicating the life by modifying the navigation through its interface, have advanced a little more in the functionality of automatically hiding the navigation bar that already enjoy the phones of the Korean firm with Infinity Display.

Until now, the bar was hidden automatically to leave the entire screen in view, keeping a point to the left that allowed us with a double touch to hide it or show it at discretion.

Thus, there will be three small tabs in the style of the Edge panel in the bottom frame, which can also be hidden and which will mark the position to drag from bottom to top and activate the function of each button independently according to its position, without needing to see any virtual button panel.

I’m already impatient to remove the keypad … do not you? Samsung, we want Android Pie now!
