Just like Apple’s iPhone, there is considerable interest in Samsung’s Galaxy handsets and their latest device, the Galaxy S IV is expected to make its debut very shortly. When that occurs, we’ll finally get the skinny on all the official features that this Android phone will have, but up until then, you can bet that there will be a lot of discussion as to what we can expect.
Today, the New York Times has gone on the record to say that one of the interesting features that this device will have is eye tracking technology. Using this technology, the Galaxy S4 will be able to monitor your eye movements and scroll the pages as your eyes move down the page. This sounds like a unique feature but many are questioning just how exactly this feature will work? Another question that we’ve been hearing today is in regards to accuracy. Will this technology be accurate in tracking eye movements?
While eye tracking technology appears to be essentially a given in the Galaxy S IV, it would appear that an S-Pen will not be included with the device. Paul Mueller, an LA analyst questions why people believe that this feature would in fact even be included. By having an S-Pen with the Galaxy S IV, Samsung would essentially be cannibalizing sales of their Galaxy Note.
