Samsung’s as-yet unrevealed Galaxy S IV handset has a new rumoured feature, the ability to track its user’s eyes and scroll a page on the device accordingly.
The rumours comes by way of a report on the New York Times, which cites an anonymous Samsung employee for the reveal of the latest feature. Sammy’s new flagship will reportedly track user’s eyes, though how this will be achieved was not specified, and automatically scroll a page once the user reaches the bottom of it.
The source also would not say whether Samsung would be demonstrating this feature at the product reveal, set to happen on 14 March at an event in New York City.
The report notes that Samsung has recently filed the trademarks ‘Eye Scroll’ and ‘Eye Pause’ in Europe and the States.
Eye Scroll is defined as “Computer application software having a feature of sensing eye movements and scrolling displays of mobile devices, namely, mobile phones, smartphones and tablet computers according to eye movements; digital cameras; mobile telephones; smartphones; tablet computers.” So there may just be some merit to this rumour.
