Samsung recently filed for a “2D 3D Movie & Still” trademark and it has some fans wondering if the manufacturing giant might be including a 3D camera in its Galaxy S4 model, which is scheduled for debut this Thursday.
The Samsung trademark, published on March 5, was submitted under International Classification 009, which by definition covers:
“Application software for smart phones; application software for tablet computers; digital cameras; USB flash drives; mobile telephones; portable media players; portable computers; rechargeable batteries; smart phones; tablet computers; wireless headsets; lenses for cameras.”
The assumption that Samsung’s Galaxy S4 will have a 3D camera is still only speculation, but based on the company’s promotional material it makes sense that fans are making the connection.
Also notable is that Samsung filed for another trademark on “Samsung Eye Scroll” and “Eye Pause”, making some speculate that the new Galaxy S4 could have eye-tracking software preloaded. Eye-tracking software could automatically scroll down a page for users browsing the web or open applications based simply by timing how long a user stares at an icon.
Other rumors about the Galaxy S4 include that it will launch with an eight-core Exynos processor, a seperate eight-core graphics processing unit, 2GB of RAM, a 4.9-inch Super Amoled display, a 13MP rear camera (capable of 1080p video), a 2MP front-facing camera, and Android’s newest version of the Android OS — 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
