    Leaked Screenshots Show US Galaxy S4 Eye-tracking Software & Confirm Quad-core CPU


    We are going to label this one as rumor for now, but it definitely seems very legit. Some leaked screenshots showcase the internal functions of the North American version of the Samsung Galaxy S IV. These pics are very revealing and include a variety of notable features, confirming the new eye-tracking software and a quad-core CPU (not the octa-core we are hoping for). Several other specs are revealed as well including the 13MP camera, the 5-inch Full HD 1080p resolution display and 2GB of RAM.


    As you can see from the second screenshot, the Samsung TouchWiz includes the new 'Smart" functions which are the eye-tracking features, including Smart Scroll and Smart Pause. Because this feature is designed for TouchWiz, we might start seeing it on other Samsung devices. Oddly, this device shows the 4.2.1 version of Android, although the final launch of the devices is supposed to have the Android 4.2.2 version. It's probable the final build will vary a bit from this because of Android 4.2.2, but shouldn't be too different.

    As the days click down toward the final launch, the rumors of two different versions of the device (one with the Exynos 5 Octa-core and one with a quad-core Snapdragon 600) seem more and more likely. We are just eight days away from the full reveal. Do you think it will affect your decision to get a new SGS4 if you can't get the Exynos 5 Octa-core version?

    Nice!! I have the Note 2 but I think the S4 would be awesome also......to many choices. Maybe I will get the S4 and just go back and forth between phones as needed. Man I'm glad Verizon went to SIMs

    I wouldn't be disappointed if it didn't have the octa core. I was disappointed my S3 didn't have the Exynos processor but that went away rather quickly when I got my S3 because the chip it does have has yet to let me down.

    I would also be disappointed if I had to get the Exynos. I'd much rather have the Snapdragon 600. They're both extremely fast processors but the Snapdragon 600 will probably have better battery life, especially on LTE. In a phone I'll always vote for battery life considering the slowest high-end processors are all fast now

    While the eight core Exynos 5 is 28nm it needs to run on four cores, either the high power cores or the low power cores. The Snapdragon Quad's can run on any number of cores that are needed and I think I've read that Krait already seems more energy efficient then Cortex A-15. The real kicker though is the LTE chipset. I'm expect the Snapdragon 600 will have a significant advantage when it comes to LTE power usage.

    Eye tracking = Another half baked gimmick that will only work in commercials. Anyone bumping playlists to each other or using tilt to zoom? Basically this is Touchwiz bloat.

    If the eye tracking actually works it will be good. It would be nice to not have the screen time out while surfing or reading.

    Yea, and scrolling by using your thumb is so 2012. I am a busy man. I don't have time to move my thumb.
    I am all for new ideas. This is dumb.

    I agree. I find it distracting that I have to scroll every 30 seconds in order to keep my screen from dimming, while reading an in-depth article on my phone. If the eye tracking is implemented in such a way that the effect on battery life is negligible, I would likely use this feature. Although I understand why this might be considered bloat by many, I think there are also plenty of people who would utilize Smart Stay if it's done well.

    eye tracking might not be the most useful feature but it shows samsung is taking the initiative in innovation... rather than just reshape the device and slap a new name on it like some fruity company does

    Change your display settings to a longer screen timeout (I think some browsers also have an option to override). You really won't sacrifice much battery having a 2-min screen timeout.
