More details about Samsung’s newest flagship model are surfacing as the official announcement of the phone scheduled on March 14 is drawing near.

This time the information is about a new feature that tracks a user’s eye movements to perform specific functions on the phone. These may include tracking eye movements when reading an article so that the phone may automatically scroll down or up to show the next paragraph among other things.

Samsung already uses face-recognition technology on a number of its devices including the Galaxy S3 to keep the phone’s screen illuminated when a person is looking at it, and since Samsung has already filed for a trademark in the U.S. for Eye Scroll and Eye Pause, the eye-tracking feature on the S4 seems logical.

Moreover, sources suggest that Samsung will focus more on the software side of the device during the press event, which is very similar to what HTC has done with the HTC One with the majority of the presentation focused on Sense 5.0.  And an eye-tracking feature is one notable item to feature especially these days when manufacturers are very keen on showcasing how their products differ from other Android devices.

Whether or not this eye-scrolling feature is the highlight of the new Galaxy S4 that makes Jeremy Maxwell’s face lit up in the recent teaser released by Samsung remains to be seen. So we may just have to wait a few days more until Samsung officially unveils the device on March 15 in New York.
