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.
