Samsung Galaxy S4 to have Smart screen features

An alleged screenshot of the Samsung Galaxy S4 reveals that the soon to arrive flagship will have Smart screen features that will allow a user to control the S4′s display just by looking at it.

The Smart screen feature provides four nifty functions:

Smart stay – it disables the screen timeout if the S4 detects that you’re looking at the screen.

Smart rotation – the S4 adjusts the screen’s rotation to your angle of sight. Really handy when you’re in bed reading eBooks.

Smart pause – the S4 pauses whatever video you’re playing when it detects your head moving away from the screen. Saves you the trouble of having to pause the video manually.

Smart scroll – The S4′s screen will start to scroll automatically if the device detects that you’re looking at the screen.

With the S4, Samsung is trying to usher in a new way of interacting with your device – using head gestures. If this is the case then we can expect a really good front-facing camera on the S4. Really smart if you ask me but we’ll have to see it first in action when the Samsung Galaxy S4 gets unpacked on March 14.

    This is actually a screenshot from a leaked Android 4.2 firmware for the S3… But of course, it means these features will make it to the S4 as well…

    Nice features if well implemented…

  3. benchmark says:

    Does this mean S4 is just another phone that has an updated JB? And it can work in other phone? Perhapa like the Siri update in iphone perhaps.

  4. haller says:

    Apple will gonna have these features in their iPhone 9.

    sana hnd plastic

    Good luck implementing these features in the dark.

    • benchmark says:

      I think it can work in the dark. Base sa dating ad ng S3, it has there yung auto shut off kapag nakatulugan mo yung phone mo….well I haven’t seen it in actual, dun lang sa ad ng s3 yun.

    Ginagawa tayong tamad ng smart screen features na yan. Hindi naman ganung ka-importante may maipakita lang bago sa s4.

    • Ogling says:

      The good thing about it is you can turn it on and off.Just check or uncheck the feature if you want it or not.
      Coz if were gonna follow the same logic on everything, then we can say we shouldn’t have tricycles as well, ginagawa din tayong tamad maglakad. Or rice cooker kasi ginagawa tayong tamad magsaing manually. Tawag dyan convenience and options. Again if you don’t want it, just turn it off.

    Waste of time and space. B&w color theme for s4, apple inspired nnman, nanggaya nnmn kaya nadedemanda. Pati marketing style ng apple ginaya na din. Ano b nmn yan

      Inggit ka lang. Wala kasing bagong feature iPhone 5 mo, except to have additional row of icon. Saka yung feature ng iPhone 5, matagal na silang existing sa Android. SIRI ba kamo? Since Eclair meron nang VOICE ACTION ang Android which means nilabas yung feature na yun 2 years prior to Apple’s SIRI.

      Don’t forget the much hyped sepia shot in iphone5 camera. Hahaha. Also the notifications…
      Tapos, press release pa dati 3.5″ daw is the best size for a phone..well what do we have here, iphone 5 humahabol sa big screen bandwagon…
      Meaning to say, it’s evolution. And I for one would encourage evolution on technology kasi we consumers are the ultimate winners when more and more features are included in a single phone. Still waiting for x-ray, oven and washing machine features LOL! hahaha
