According to a publication by Brian Chen, a blogger for the New York Times, Samsung plans to embed a new feature in the Galaxy S4 that is able to monitor users’ eyes and “roll the content” automatically, without any touch on the device’s screen.

«The phone will follow a user’s eyes to determine where he wants to go, said a Samsung employee, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press,» published the American newspaper.

The feature would have the ability to monitor users’ eyes while reading articles, and when their eyes reach the end of the page, the software will automatically reveal the next few paragraphs of text.

The Samsung official also said that the functionalities incorporated in the software of the new phone must «overcome the importance of the hardware».
