Samsung Galaxy S4 photo corroborates Smart Scroll and Smart Pause

Snaps of the software that powers the Samsung Galaxy S4 have leaked online, confirming that the handset will feature advanced eye motion-sensitive controls.

Screenshots sourced by SamMobile clearly show features dubbed Smart Scroll, which lets users scroll though pages with their eyes alone, with options to set the scrolling speed, as well support for Gmail.

Also in evidence is Smart Pause, which “pauses videos when [the front-facing camera] detects your head moving away from the screen”.

Both features have been strongly rumoured to be on board the next Galaxy smartphone for months now, as Samsung once again bets on the quirkiness of its Nature UX user interface to distinguish its flagship effort from the competition.

The Galaxy S3, which may or may not get these features at a later date via an Android update, introduced the natural world-inspired software to the world last year with features such as Smart Stay. This is an intelligent sleep mode that uses the phone’s secondary snapper to better determine when it is in use.

Samsung is set to unveil the Galaxy S4 on March 14th in the showbizzy environs of New York’s Times Square, with a simultaneous broadcast going live on the big screens in Times Square.
