Samsung Galaxy IV Will Track Your Eye
Samsung's Galaxy phones have always been grounded in hosting all varieties of software trickery. For example, in the Galaxy S III, the phone's sensors could pick up if you are looking at the screen, and dim or lock the device if you aren't. With the Galaxy S IV, Samsung may be looking to expand on such eye tracking technology even further.
According to The New York Times, Samsung may unveil advance eye tracking during its Galaxy S IV press event on March 14. The phone will be able to track a user's eye to determine where to scroll. For example, when reading an article, the device could auto-scroll when a user reaches at the end of the available page.
Adding weight to the report is Samsung's two patent filings earlier this year for 'Eye Scroll' in Europe and 'Samsung Eye Scroll' in the United States. The patent also mentioned 'Eye Pause', without describing what the features does - probably allowing users to pause a video or a music file by briefly closing and opening their eyes.
This is all speculation and rumors for now, so take it how you may. The Galaxy S IV is set to reveal on March 14. Previous rumors suggest the device will sport an 8-core processor, a 4.99" FullHD display, and running on the latest Android Jelly Bean 4.2 operating system.
