Samsung introduced Smart Stay in the Galaxy S III that tracked user’s eyes and prevented the display from turning off. Now according to New York Times’ source who has “tried” the Galaxy S IV phone, the upcoming device will have a new eye tracking feature called Eye Scroll.
Eye Scroll will basically track user’s eye ball movements and will scroll the page up and down accordingly. NYT’s source does not say what technology is being used to track the eye movements or if it will be shown off at the Galaxy S IV conference but did claim that the software features will “outweigh” the hardware.
Furthermore, a bit of sleuthing by NYT reveals that Samsung also applied for a trademark in Europe and United States for the Eye Scroll and Eye Pause.
Samsung will reveal the Galaxy S IV on March 14 in New York and was supposedly leaked earlier today on Twitter.
