Samsung’s current flagship line-up comes with devices with the display more than 6-inches. So, having the floating mode will help the user ease down the typing process. During the Galaxy S5 era, the company removed the feature because in those times the display was mostly below 6-inches. So, it didn’t prove much useful for the users the way it does nowadays.
