Default [Q] Technology wise ... How does Air view work?

I have found threads and info about how it works on the Note 2, about magnets in the stylus but how does it know when your finger is hovering over the S4 screen?

Anyone know?

The one at the top of the phone?

So it sort of senses downwards as well as infront of itself?

No.

It's the same old touchscreen controller technology just much more sensitive.

I'm just curious.

I read somewhere that it was indeed the sensor at the top, mixed with the old technology too.

The apps I know it works with are stock email, stock texts and flipboard. Not sure what else. It doesn't even seem to work on lockscreen...

How to use the air view on Stock text? I thought it can show the contents of text from text overview display. But when I tried, nothing shown.

Sooo no way that this feature will be on the galaxy s3? Since it's hardware related
