It looks like last week's sensational New York Times report suggesting the Galaxy S 4 could introduce an eye-tracking technology that lets you scroll through large swathes of text without having to constantly touch the screen, wasn't without merit. Screenshots allegedly of the Galaxy S 4, unearthed by SAMMobile reveal options related to the technology.
It looks like Samsung's technology tracks not only your eyes, but even your head movements, to perform a host a cool new things like pausing a video that's being played back. A couple of these features are quite nicely described within the settings pages.
- Smart Stay: The device won't turn its screen off if it senses your face is watching the screen
- Smart Rotation: Adjusts screen rotation to your angle of sight, overriding the gyro. Now you can lie down on your side and use the device in its portrait mode, without worrying about a landscape tilt
- Smart Pause: Pauses videos being played back if the device senses you're not watching
- Smart Scroll: Scrolls through documents and web-pages sensing you've come to the end of a page
Each of the above can be tweaked and calibrated to suit your daily usage. Samsung Galaxy S 4 launches on March 14.
