Earlier this year it was reported that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 could be getting features like Eye Scroll and Eye Pause. For those hearing about this for the first time, these are basically features that allows the user to scroll through pages using their eyes/head movement, while the Pause feature will pause videos when the phone detects your head has moved away from the screen (this is done through the use of the front-facing camera). If you had some skepticism of such features coming to the Galaxy S4, hopefully these newly leaked screenshots will be able to prove otherwise.
Thanks to the folks at SamMobile, they have managed to get their hands on several screenshots in which such features have been revealed. They will not be called Eye Scroll or Eye Pause, but will instead be named Smart Scroll and Smart Pause. There is even a feature called Smart Rotation which according to the description, will adjust your screen’s orientation to your angle of sight. We’re not sure how this will work, but hopefully it will not be annoying where your screen flips around at the slightly tilt. The screenshots also seem to confirm the Full HD display of the Galaxy S4 since the original images had a resolution of 1920×1080.
We understand you might still hold some reservation, but based on what we’ve seen these screenshots could be the real deal. Either way with the Galaxy S4’s announcement being a little over a week away, we won’t have to wait too long to see if they come true.
Update – SamMobile has updated their page and claimed that these screenshots are actually from a leaked Android 4.2.1 firmware for the Galaxy S3, but at the same time they are still claiming that these features will be part of the Galaxy S4 as well.
