The eyes have it with the Samsung Galaxy S IV
Eye scrolling is reportedly set to be one of the features of Samsung's new Galaxy S IV flagship, which will be revealed in New York next week.
The handset will follow a user's eye movements, meaning pages will automatically scroll down once a user reaches the end of the page. The New York Times quoted a Samsung employee who spoke on the condition of anonymity. In January, the Korean phone giant filed a trademark for the name 'Eye Scroll' in the UK in January and for 'Samsung Eye Scroll' in the US in February.
If the report is true, it will be an evolution of the Smart Stay technology used in the Samsung Galaxy S III. It uses the front facing camera to keep the screen lit up so long as it is being looked at.
The long-awaited Galaxy S IV will be launched in New York on 14 March in one of the biggest and eagerly anticipated phone announcements this year.
