The Samsung Galaxy S4 will debut at a Samsung press conference on March 15, 2013. In anticipation of the New York City press event several small details have been revealed about the company’s next flagship smartphone.
According to the The New York Times, the new Galaxy S4 will feature an eye scrolling option. The new feature will track eye movement from the user in order to determine where the screen should scroll to next. A source for the company explains the new option:
“For example, when users read articles and their eyes reach the bottom of the page, the software will automatically scroll down to reveal the next paragraphs of text.”
Samsung plans to demonstrate the new features during its March 15 press event.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 will also feature Smart Stay, a feature that automatically turns off the phones camera if nobody is looking at it. Just like the company’s scroll feature, the Smart Stay technology looks for eye movements and if none are found it fails to utilize the camera lens.
Along with the new eye tracking features other rumors for the Galaxy S IV have included a higher resolution display, a faster and higher megapixel camera (possible 13-megapixels), and a quad-core processor that will rival HTC’s One smartphone.
As the company has traditionally done, Samsung has been busily releasing teaser trailer to get our hopes up:
As the world’s largest producer of Google Android based smartphones, the company sold 40 million Galaxy S3 phones since launching in May 2012. Samsung has also moved millions of middle and entry-level devices based on the Google Android OS.
With talks of eye tracking software, flexible and “unbreakable” screens, higher speeds and better performance all eyes will be glued to Samsung when the Galaxy S4 is finally announced.
