Samsung Galaxy S4 Will Not Come With Eye Scroling, Exynos 5 Octa and Snapdragon 600 Variants, Confirmed by Bloomberg
Tomorrow Samsung will hold its Galaxy S4 Unpacked event in New York and all eyes are focused on it. The media and the possible customers are eager to see how the new flagship will look like and what surprising feature it will come with. We all know some of the specs of the Galaxy S4 and even if they haven’t been officially confirmed, more and more reports are appearing every day, all of them validating what we already knew.
The latest one comes from Bloomberg, publication which is citing two individuals familiar with the matter, and confirms the fact that the most important Samsung device of 2013 will come with a 5-inch display. More important is that the online publication claims that the flagship will be available in two variants, depending on the processor, just like the early rumors said. In other words, the version that will be sold in the United States will sport a quad-core SoC developed by Qualcomm, which will provide extra processing power making it better at handling multitasking, while the international version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 will come with the much debated Exynos 5 Octa.
Bloomberg also notes that the Galaxy S4 will boast a 13 MP primary camera, but unfortunately the shooter won’t include the eye scrolling function that some reports claimed to be one of the main attraction of the device. Nevertheless, it seems that the phone will include a feature that tracks the eyes of the user, but it will be useful only while watching videos. The users of the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be able to pause any video by moving their eyes away from the display. This means that the Eye Pause function mentioned in earlier reports will be implemented. The bad news is that the users will not be able to scroll down pages with their eyes.
Even though the Eye Scrolling feature might not be available on the Galaxy S4, it could be included in future versions of the smartphone, according to some sources cited by Bloomberg.
However, tomorrow will be the day when all our questions will be answered. We’ll provide you with the latest news as soon as the company unveils the Galaxy S4.
