Leaked images offer hardware details
Samsung has previously announced that it will officially unveil the Galaxy S IV on
in New York City. Samsung went so far as to invite everyone to Times Square to watch the official unveil of the new smartphone live. Although Samsung is hoping of keeping things under wraps until next week, supposed rendering of the device have already leaked courtesy of
One of the leaked images even shows a few of the hardware details for the phone. The first image, which you can see to the right, shows the S IV compared to other smartphones in the Galaxy S series. The S IV is clearly larger than the S III and the previous devices in franchise. The second image also tips some of the features of the smartphone.
This image notes that the S IV has a Super AMOLED screen with 1080p resolution. It's unclear exactly how large that screen is, but it appears to be larger than the one used on the S III. The image also tips the smartphone will be available in 16 GB, 32 GB, or 64 GB storage versions and all will have two gigabytes of RAM. The phone is also tipped to have a 13-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and LED flash. The operating system is reportedly Android 4.2.
While that's all the detail the leaked photographs offer, the new Samsung smartphone is also rumored to support technology that tracks the users eyes to automatically scroll pages. The feature is reportedly called “Eye Scrolling” and will track the user’s eyes to automatically determine when to scroll a page.
These details have come from an anonymous Samsung employee. According this employee, when the user reads an article and their eyes get to the bottom of the page, the phone will automatically scroll allowing the user to read the rest of the content.
Samsung previously filed a trademark in Europe for "Eye Scroll" and has filed for a trademark on "Samsung Eye Scroll" in the U.S. Both of those trademarks appear to support the unnamed Samsung employee's claims. Interestingly, Samsung also filed a trademark for a technology called "Eye Pause" but there's no mention of that tech in the leaks.
Samsung has already stated that the software features of the S IV will be more important than hardware innovations.
