It looks like Samsung will be looking after you in the car with its upcoming flagship smartphone, with Dutch website KopenGalaxyS5 posting a leaked screenshot teasing a new "Driving Mode" for the Galaxy S5.

The new Driving Mode will let you use voice commands to do basic functions on the Galaxy S5 without the need of your hands, these commands will include answering your phone, getting turn-by-turn navigation and playing your tunes. You'll be able to do all of this by simply saying "Hi Galaxy" while the Galaxy S5 is sitting in Driving Mode.

This will work very close to how Google Now accepts commands by saying "OK Google", and how Google Glass does things by accepting commands by saying "OK Glass".
