Samsung Galaxy S4 to Feature Touchless Gestures, Eye-Tracking Tech

It goes without saying that we fully expect the Samsung Galaxy S4 to launch some time later this year, but features and specs are going to separate it from the pack? For starters, we’re hearing that it’ll have eye-tracking technology, as well as touchless no contact gestures.

Unlike its Galaxy Note cousin, the S4 is rumored to lack the S Pen, opting instead for no contact gestures where you can swipe around on the screen without actually touching the screen. There are even gestures for left click, right click, object flip, and virtual work space navigation. But that’s not at all. We’re also hearing that it has new eye tracking technology, dubbed Eye Scroll and Eye Pause. Patents for this eye tracking tech were recently revealed too.

As far as the core specs, the Galaxy S4 is rumored to boast a 4.99-inch full 1080p HD Super AMOLED. The new 1.8GHz Exynos 5 Octa 8-core processor is expected to make its debut in the S4, backed up by 2GB of RAM, a front-facing 2MP camera, a rear-facing 13MP camera, and your choice of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. Wireless charging will likely be in tow as well.

Yes, it’s a powerhouse. The Samsung Unpacked event is scheduled for March 15 and it is likely there that Samsung will officially take the wraps off the S4. The European launch is rumored for mid-April, while an American release is slated for the late May or early June window.
