Several days ago, a rumor related to the upcoming and yet-unannounced Samsung Galaxy S IV surfaced suggesting that the device would use advanced eye-tracking features. By figuring out which part of the screen the user is looking at, the smartphone would automatically scroll whatever content is displayed, be it a web page, a document, or something else. Now, a handful of screenshots, allegedly taken on a Galaxy S IV, confirm the existence of the said feature...

arent these features useless at night ( or dimly lit room ) because the camera barely detects anything?

Light of the screen should be enough to detect eye related sensing IMHO.

Smarter.
Don't think you should get the S4, you'll make all the others seem dumb.
Didn't really want to say it but Samsung fanboys are becoming more ignorant like Apple fanboys, which is sucks because now I can't even defend myself against Apple fanboys.

Well we can agree that when a product creates more fanboys....they must be doing something right.

Sadly...I agree with you.

English is not his primary language, obviously.
There're a lot of members here from middle east Asia. Bashing someone on thing like this is pathetic!

I DONT KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT TO TYPE SOMETHING IN ALL CAPS IS QUITE IGNORANT, PRIMARY LANGUAGE OR NOT.

The siv doesnt have a home button. Look at the leak pictures again. Most 5"phone phones have on screen buttons

I'm sure it will blow the fish out of the pond but i dont see any innovation that will solve oure biggest problems... Like nokia's pureview camera during low light .

Does all innovation have to solve "our" biggest problems? Who or what determines "our" biggest problems?

I rarely use the camera on my phone.....so the camera means nothing to me.

Ppl that read alot on their phones.....might like these feature more than Pureview. I am into eBook now. Guess wich feature would get more used by me between these and Pureview?

I would rather see innovation in battery tech than camera tech. If camera tech, innovation was so important...everyone would have a 920 or 808. Or HTC One. Thats the beauty of it....we all have different wants n needs.
