New York Times: Samsung Galaxy S4 will feature eye-based scrolling

Samsung-Galaxy-S-III-Smart-Stay

As you will remember the Galaxy S3 had an awesome feature known as Smart Stay, when it was active the smart-phones display would never sleep as long as the owner was looking at the screen. Well news has broke today that is very exciting indeed, the New York Times claims that a Samsung insider has told them that the Galaxy S4 will take this feature to a whole new level and allow eye-based scrolling.

So this basically means that readers will never have to lay a finger on the screen to scroll downwards. The Galaxy S4 will be able to tell when you are at the bottom of the page and move to the next chapter/section on it’s own. This new hands-off approach is supposedly part of a strategy where Samsung show us that software is more important than hardware. When Chief product officer Kevin Packingham was asked by the New York Times if this rumour was true he choose not to confirm but he did say that he didn’t feel the hardware was going to take a back seat.

This sounds awesome to us and we sure can’t wait to get a full hands on with the device. Stay tuned for more updates.
