Beginning with the launch of the Galaxy S3 terminal, Samsung has started to focus more on the software aspects of their devices, and the new TouchWiz UI that comes pre-installed on the flagship smartphone is there to prove it.

As the Samsung Galaxy S4 launch event approaches the rumors about the technical specifications and features of the smartphone are starting to pile up. According to an anonymous source quoted by New York Times, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 will come with new software technologies developed by the South Korea-based company and meant to improve the user experience.

One of the new features of the Samsung Galaxy S4 might be Eye Scroll, which will allow you to scroll content on your display by using your eyes.

The TouchWiz UI that came with Samsung Galaxy S3 had a feature called Smart Stay, which was preventing the smartphone to dim the display as long as the front-facing sensors were detecting that the user is looking at the smartphone, an helpful feature to those who read a lot on their phones.

The Easy Scroll option, based on technology already patented by Samsung, will complete the features of the smartphone and will allow the user to scroll content on its display using eye movement, therefore eliminating some of the touch interactions.

Besides Eye Scroll, Samsung also registered the Eye Pause trademark, but, for the dime being there are no details about how the technology works. Based on how the folks at Samsung are naming their technologies, we can speculate that we are talking about an improved version of the current Smart Stay, which might allow the user to pause a video when he is not looking at the display.

We already know almost everything about the technical specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S4, therefore we are expecting the smartphone to come with a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED Display with full HD resolution, an octo-core Exynos 5 Octa processor, 2 GB of RAM, and there internal storage options: 16, 32, or 64 GB of internal storage. The Galaxy S4 might also come with a 13 megapixel camera and we’ve exclusively told you that it will also feature a Photo Sphere-like feature called Orb
