Samsung Galaxy S4 will track eye movement
Reports suggest the Samsung Galaxy S4 will let you scroll web pages with your eyes
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is just a few weeks from being introduced and the rumors are flying. We've already seen some hardware leaks and a new report suggests that the Android superphone will have some nifty eye-tracking software.
The New York Times said that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will have a feature which will let you scroll on web pages using only your eyes. This would likely use the front-facing camera to see where your eyes are and where they're focusing.
While this may sound super futuristic, it's not really that much of a stretch. The Samsung Galaxy S4 is bound to have some cool, unique software features and this one could fit in nicely with what Samsung has done in the past. For example, the Galaxy Note 2 uses that front-facing camera to track your eyes in order to make sure the device doesn't lock the screen if you're looking directly at it.
What other software goodies can we expect from the Samsung Galaxy S4? It's tough to tell but you can bet that Samsung will build upon its past successes like ShareShot and GroupCast, which enable Samsung owners to collaborate and share based on photos.
You can also be sure that Samsung will be super-charging the hardware as well. The Samsung Galaxy S4 should launch with a 5-inch screen with a 1080p HD resolution, an octa-core Exynos processor, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, Wi-Fi, 4G LTE, NFC, at least 2GB of RAM and DLNA.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be introduced on March 14 at an event in New York and if you're nearby, you can watch the unveiling from Times Square. Of course, you can also just follow us on The Full Signal.
