Samsung's next headliner is the Galaxy S IV. And it looks like they might have an upgrade after all. It could include an eye scrolling feature, which will let users read text, hands free.
The New York Times is reporting the smartphone, to launch on March 14 in New York will be able to sense eyes' placement on a page. The feature will track eye movements near the bottom of the screen and the software will scroll down to reveal more paragraphs.
According to a Samsung employee, the software will be the star of the new device.
But having said that, the inclusion of this feature isn't probably so much of a surprise since they've always shown interest in that technology when it filed for its Samsung "Eye Scroll" trademark in February and a patent for "Eye Pause".
The manufacturer has already started teasing the new flagship phone with a promotional teaser video.
Aside from eye scrolling, rumors say that the device will have an Exynos 5 8-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera and run on Android 4.2.2.
