Galaxy S IV screenshots reveal Smart Scroll, Smart Pause features (Update)

Update: Turns out these are the screenshots from a leaked Samsung Galaxy S III Android 4.2.1 build, not S IV. Frankly, I am glad to know that because the same UI as S III would certainly have sucked; even HTC has revamped their UI; Time for Samsung to do so. We are still pretty sure that Smart Scroll and Smart Pause will arrive in S IV, just that these are not S4 screenshots.

samsung-smart-scrollIt was just yesterday that we first heard about Samsung Galaxy S4’s ability to scroll pages by just looking at our eye movements. Now, thanks to a tipster of SamMobile, we know the feature will be dubbed as Smart Scroll and screenshots showcasing it have been posted online.

These screenshots also reveal another feature called “Smart Pause,” which will apparently pause the video playback on Galaxy S IV by detecting if your head has moved away from the display.

Yesterday’s NYT report has added that Samsung is focussing more attention on the software customisations of the upcoming Galaxy S IV than ever. The phone is likely to come with plethora of custom tweaks over Android 4.2.

The smartphone is set to be launched on March 14 in New York and will come with features like 4.99-inch full HD display, 1.8GHz octa-core Exynos processor, 2GB RAM, and 13MP rear camera. Samsung Galaxy S IV is likely to go on sale beginning late-March or early-April.

      @shamanth They are the only ones saying this. No one can be 100pc accurate with leaks, every once in a while there is some goof up.
