Trending: Testing the new breed of bike sharing: We pitted Spin vs. LimeBike on the streets of Seattle

Today is the day we’ll finally get to see the Samsung Galaxy S4 when the company’s newest smartphone is unveiled at a New York City event later this afternoon.

Thanks to new video leaks, though, we might already know what to expect.

There were these screenshots that appeared Wednesday and now we have some video demos from SammyHub that show several new features of Samsung’s flagship phone.

The videos demonstrate Floating Touch, SmartPause, the new unlock screen and a new web browsing experience.

Floating Touch allows you to hover over icons, links, etc., instead of “clicking,” to get extra information instead of actually pushing the screen. It’s very similar to Samsung’s Air View S Pen functionality, just without the stylus. In the video, the user hovers over images to see a bigger photo and hovers over contact names to find out more info.

SmartPause pauses and resumes video according to whether you’re looking at it or not. The unlock screen looks slightly different with an added sparkle, while it appears you can now browse the internet with hand gestures.

We’ll be covering Samsung’s event this afternoon, so check back around 5 p.m. for that.
