Nokia released an update for the display+touch app to bring few changes, including the new “hover” capability.
The problem, however, is that the update will only work with Lumia smartphones that have the Amber update, meaning only the Lumia 925 will do it for now. Of course, that will change in the next few weeks when the new software will also be released for few other Nokia devices, including the Lumia 920 and.
Back to the “hover thing.” Basically this capability allows you to hover your hand over the phone to see your glance screen. The magic happens by relying on the built-in proximity sensor which is regularly used to turn-off the touchscreen when you’re holding a phone next to your ear.
Pretty cool, especially for folks enjoying BBQ in the summer when their hands are too greasy to touch the phone.
On a related note, Samsunghas a similar capability enabling users to answer a phone call this way. Perhaps Nokia (or that’s Microsoft) will also include something like that in one of its (their) future updates. We’ll see…
