It pays to be a night owl sometimes. When you stay up into the wee hours of the night, some pretty awesome information ends up at your digital doorstep. And tonight, it concerns the Galaxy S IV. Seems that SamMobile got some screenshots sent over to them. Screenshots that were lifted from the Galaxy S IV. These screenshots confirm one feature that have been reported to be in the Galaxy S IV. Let’s officially welcome “Smart Scrolling”.
We reported a couple days ago, that the GSIV was going to have eye based scrolling technology. If you take a look at these screenshots…it confirms just that. They are calling it “Smart scrolling”, which I guess is a fitting title to this technology. The screenshots show a calibration menu, as well as some other “smart” settings. These smart settings will detect position of your head, whether you look away, turning to the side, or simply just watching whatever is displayed on the screen. Yeah, this phone is going to be watching whatever move you make. Let that sink in.
The screenshots also show that Samsung has decided to stick to a similar UI as the Galaxy S III. I am sure there will have lots of improvements though, with Nature UX 2.0. Check out the screenshots, and let us know what you guys think.
UPDATE: According to SamMobile, these screenshots are actually from am Android 4.2.1 firmware update for the Galaxy S III. Guess they plan on rolling out this Smart Scrolling to the GSIII as well.
