    Thumbs up سامسونج ستضيف ميزة التحكم عبر العين في جالاكسي إس 4 المرتقب الخميس القادم Samsung Galaxy S4


    Leaked Samsung Galaxy S4 Screenshots Confirm Quad Core Processor For US

    كشف تقرير إخباري أن هاتف سامسونج جالاكسي إس 4 سيحصل على ميزة تقنية جديدة هي ميزة تتبع حركة العين للتحكم في المحتوى المعروض على الهاتف الذكي.



    وأشارت صحيفة نيويورك تايمز على لسان موظف في سامسونج إلى أن التقنية أطلق عليها اسم Eye Scrolling وستوفر للمستخدم ميّزة تقليب الصفحات من خلال حركة العينين حيث ستقوم بمراقبة حركة عيني المستخدم لتحدد لحظة حاجته لتقليب الصفحة لقراءة المزيد منها، كما في صفحات الانترنت وصفحات الكتب الالكترونية.

    ويدعم صحة تقرير الصحيفة الأمريكية هو حصول سامسونج على علامة تجارية باسم “Samsung Eye Scroll” والتي جاء في شرحها “برنامج حاسوبي يمتلك ميّزة تحسس حركة العين وتقليب الصفحة الظاهرة في شاشة الأجهزة المحمولة الذكية سواء الهواتف الذكية أو الحواسيب اللوحية استناداً لحركة العين”.
    كشفت صحيفة "نيويورك تايمز" الأمريكية عن طريق مصادر لها داخل شركة سامسونج الكورية الجنوبية، عن إمكانات هاتفها الذكي الجديد "جلاكسي إس 4"، الذي من المقرر أن تكشف عنه رسمياً يوم 14 مارس المقبل في احتفالية ضخمة بمدينة نيويورك.

    وقالت الصحيفة: إن الجهاز الجديد سيكون ذا إمكانات متميزة، التي سيكون أبرزها نظام "تتبع العين"، الذي يسمح للمستخدمين بتمرير الصور وتحريكها تلقائياً، بمجرد "نظرة عين" إلى تلك الصور، كما أنك لن تكون بحاجة إلى أن تحرك إصبعك، لتقلب صفحات الويب المختلفة؛ فبمجرد أن تحرك عينيك ستتقلب الصفحات تلقائياً.


    وسيكون الهاتف الذكي الجديد مزوداً بكاميرا خلفية، تصل دقة تصويرها إلى 13 ميجابيكسل، علاوة على أنه سيكون مزوداً بأكثر من نسخة للذاكرة الداخلية 16 جيجابايت، و32 جيجابايت، و64 جيجابايت، وذاكرة عشوائية (RAM) تصل سعتها إلى 2 جيجابايت.


    سيعمل "جلاكسي إس 4" بنظام تشغيل "آندرويد 4.2 جيلي بين"، وسيكون مزوداً بشاشة تعمل باللمس، تصل مساحتها إلى خمس بوصات.



    Yesterday we saw some leaked screenshots from the new Samsung Galaxy S4, which confirmed that the handset would feature eye tracking technology, today we have some new screenshots from the Samsung Galaxy S4.

    The latest Samsung Galaxy S4 screenshots are apparently from the US version of the handset, and confirm that the US Samsung Galaxy S4 will come with a quad core processor, the pictures show a clock speed of 1.8GHz.





    Other specifications which are confirmed by the photos are the 13 megapixel camera on the Samsung Galaxy S4, have a look at the photos below which also show that the handset will come with 2GB of RAM and a full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
    We are expecting two versions of the Samsung Galaxy S4 to be announced next Thursday, one for the US and one for Europe, the European version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is rumored to feature Samsung’s new Exynos 5 Octa 8 core processor.




    The Samsung Galaxy S4 will also feature a front facing 2.1 megapixel camera and a choice of either 16GB, 32GB or 65GB of built in storage, plus a range of new features which include Samsung Orb, Eye Scroll and Eye Pause plus touchless gestures.

    The touchless gestures sound interesting and one way they could work is that if you want to answer an incoming call on your Galaxy S4 you would just lift the handset to your ear to answer the call, rather than pressing a button first.




    Samsung Orb is rumored to be Samsung’s version of Android’s Photo Sphere, which is available in the latest version of Google’s Android mobile OS, another new feature is eye tracking technology.

    We do not know very much about the new eye tracking technology on the Galaxy S4 as yet, what we do know is that it will come with features that are called Eye Scroll and Eye Pause, as these were discovered in some recent Samsung patent filings.





    The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be officially announced at a special press event in New York next week, the event will also be live streamed on YouTube and in Times Square, we are expecting the handset to go on sale in April worldwide.






    Our Samsung Galaxy S4 release date, specs & price rumours article will grow to accommodate even more speculation as the months roll on. So save this page and keep checking back for regular updates
    Samsung’s Galaxy S3 launched to much critical acclaim when it was unveiled in May last year, we awarded it our Best Buy award and it still remains our top pick Android handset. No wonder, then, that speculation surrounding the launch of its follow-up is mounting.

    While Samsung is keeping tight-lipped on its future product launches, a series of 'leaks' and 'source quotes' claim the South Korean firm is putting the final touches to its fourth-generation flagship handset - almost certainly to be called the Samsung Galaxy S4. Here, we round up all the latest speculation to find out what to expect.
    SAMSUNG GALAXY S4 RELEASE DATE - UPDATE 25/02

    Invites have now been sent out to a launch event for the Samsung Galaxy S4. The launch will take place in New York on the 14th of March. The event is officially titled Samsung unpacked 2013 Episode 1 - and invites us to 'Come and meet the next Galaxy'. If you're keen to watch the event then it will be livestreamed at www.youtube.com/SamsungMobile.


    The launch event is now set, and we'll be there
    In the meantime, if you'd like a taste of things to come, Samsung has released a video teaser, in which a blonde child is tasked with keeping the new S4 secret from prying eyes, while being driven around in a Rolls Royce. It's odd, to say the least.
    Samsung is not messing around when it comes to the launch, either. The company has flexed its marketing muscle and erected huge posters at Times Square in New York ahead of the launch next week.

    [Samsung UNPACKED] Be ready 4 the next Galaxy

    The design of the posters has also got the rumour mill grinding. As the posters are black and white, then it stands to reason that the phones will also be available in black and white, surely?
    The Galaxy S3 was first available with a white chassis then came out in black with the LTE version, so this particular rumour isn't exactly a stretch.
    ON-SALE DATE

    The Samsung S3 launch took place in London on the 3rd of May 2012, so Samsung has only allowed for 10 months between handsets. The S3 then went on sale to the public on the 29th of May worldwide, and so you can expect to have the S4 in your hands by the middle of April at the latest.
    With Samsung now having shown its hand, the early release date might effect Apple's thinking when it comes to the launch of the iPhone 5S - .

    SAMSUNG GALAXY S4 PRICE

    As expected, leaks surrounding the S4's suspected price have been thin on the ground, although we can expect it to cost as much as the S3 when it launched back in May - a wallet-busting £499. Once again though the tough competition from Google's own Nexus 4 device may force Samsung to lower its price in order to compete - unless of course the hardware specification is a big step forward.
    On contract you're likely to be looking at £30-40 a month minimum, and considerably more with a 4G service such as EE. This will be an expensive handset, though probably still a little less than the iPhone 5 costs.

    SAMSUNG GALAXY S4 SPECS - UPDATED 09/03

    The Galaxy S4 is rumoured to be powered by Samsung's new Exynos 5 processor, which will have a whopping eight cores.
    The company tweeted a rendering of the new chip, which is also rumoured to power the new Galaxy Note 3 phone/tablet, from its @SamsungExynos Twitter account, so whetting the appetites of Samsung fans everywhere.

    The new chip's eight-core design is based on AMD's big.LITTLE architecture. This means that there are four powerful Cortex-A15 cores for the phone's most power-hungry functions, and four lower-power Cortex-A7 models to take care of simpler tasks. When the phone isn't needed to do anything fancy, the more powerful cores shut down, extending battery life.

    According to sources speaking to Taiwanese industry rumour site DigiTimes, the S4 will include a 5in Full HD display with an impressive 1920x1080 resolution, following a trend starting with rival HTC's Butterfly handset. Such a display would have an impressive pixel density of around 440 pixels per inch (PPI) - significantly above the resolution of Apple's Retina display technology. Such a big display, however, would certainly blur the line between the S4 and Samsung's own tablet-phone hybrid Galaxy Note 2 device.

    The new screen size and resolution was all but confirmed when Samsung showed a slide to AnandTech at CES 2013.

    The slide showed the companies release schedule for screens and highlighted a Q1 2013 launch for a 4.99in Full HD (1,920x1,080) display, which ties in perfectly with expected launch date for the Samsung Galaxy S4.

    According to AnandTech, the new screen is a full RGB OLED, he PenTile AMOLED in the Galaxy S3. While a regular display has RGB sub-pixels to make up the picture, the Samsung PenTile uses RGBG, adding an extra green sub-pixel. Samsung claims that this extends the life of the screen, but the complaint is that these screens aren't as sharp as full RGB screens.
    We'd now put money on the rumours of screen size and resolution being correct, as Samsung asked AnandTech to take-down the shot of the slide and the accompanying information about the screen. That's about as close to confirmation as you're likely to get before an official launch.
    Another separate rumour supports this ever-increasing screen size mania, including a report from The Korea Times suggesting that a new entry in the Galaxy Note family, imaginatively dubbed the Galaxy Note 3, will include an impressively large 6.3in Full HD display - which would maintain the gap between the devices.

    Another rumour has pointed to the use of a flexible display technology, previously demonstrated as a stand-alone product by Samsung, to give the Galaxy S4 an unbreakable screen. Sadly, this may not come to pass - at least, not until the Galaxy S5 is ready - with The Verge quoting an anonymous source as stating that commercial implementation of Samsung's flexible display technology in smartphone devices is "still a while off".

    UPDATE: Recent reports have pointed to new screen technology for the Samsung Galaxy S4. First, is Floating Touch technology, which lets you hover your finger over the screen to control the phone. In this way, the technology lets you use your finger as a kind of mouse cursor, so you can hover over an item to bring up more information.
    Samsung already has this technology in its Note products via the S Pen, which it calls Air Touch. However, SamMobile reports that the Galaxy S4 will get similar features with your finger.

    SamMobile has also reported that Samsung's new flagship Android Smartphone may be the first to use new AMOLED screen materials. Using green PHOLED (phosphorescent organic light-emitting diode), the new technology works on the basis that the organic materials used produce light when electric current is applied.
    According to reports, it's reported that Samsung's display will cover the green-yellow part of the spectrum using the green PHOLED technology. The red and blue parts of the colour spectrum will be provided by standard fluorescent OLEDs.
    The benefit of this change is, apparantely, a 25 per cent energy saving. Given that it looks like the Samsung Galaxy S4 will have a larger screen and will be packed full of the latest technology, saving power on the screen should help maintain, if not improve, battery life over the Samsung Galaxy S3.
    WIRELESS CHARGING

    Seemingly more likely is that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will have wireless charging built in. Wireless charging, in which inductive or resonating systems provide power to without the need to connect a charging cable, are becoming increasingly popular: Nokia's flagship Lumia 920 includes wireless charging built into the phone. Integration makes a lot of sense as it removes the need for bulky wireless charging cases that bulk up a handset, and make it much more convenient to charge a phone. We'd expect Samsung to want all of the latest technologies in its new handset and wireless charging makes a lot of sense.

    It's possible that the company could go a lot further as a recent patent application shows. Samsung's wireless charging patent, applied for in July last year and published in December, describes a technology that combines wireless power with a modulated carrier signal - allowing the handset to communicate with the charging mat or stand.

    If it allows data, Samsung's technology could allow extra features, such as placing your phone on a speaker dock and have it play music wirelessly. This would remove the need to join a Wi-Fi network or enable Bluetooth. It could potentially be used for syncing data, such as photos and videos, to the phone as well.
    As is normal, the patent doesn't mention any specific devices that the technology will apply to, but the timing does seem right for the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4.
    FAST WIRELESS NETWORKING

    The Galaxy S4 will not only have 4G mobile data, but Samsung has also speeded up the phone's wireless networking. The handset is rumoured to have 802.11ac wireless networking, which is a dramatic improvement over 802.11g; the first 802.11ac wireless kit we tested managed over 300Mbit/s in our throughput tests.
    The Galaxy S4 is expected to use the Broadcom BCM4335 combination chip to provide its 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth and FM radio capabilities. According to Broadcom Senior Vice President Michael Hurlston, "The BCM4335 is the perfect mobile complement to these 5G WiFi products, allowing smartphones and tablets to get the full benefit of the technology at both ends of the wireless connection".
    Patrick Wang at Evercore Partners, an investment bank advisory firm, believes that the Galaxy S4 will be powered by such a chip. "We conducted a series of checks that indicate BRCM’s combo chip (likely 4335, with 5G WiFi, BT, FM) remains designed into Samsung’s forthcoming Galaxy S4 – across most if not all SKUs", said Wang.
    An increasing number of routers supporting 802.11ac are being released all the time, so it makes sense for the Galaxy S4 to support the latest, fastest wireless standard.
    ADVANCED AUDIO PROCESSING WITH EARSMART ES325 CHIP

    Samsung has a history of using Audience audio-processing chips in smartphones such as the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3, so it's logical to suspect that the Galaxy S4 will also use the firm's latest audio processor - the earSmart eS325.

    The eS325 was launched at Mobile World Congress, and helps to make voice calls significantly clearer. It does this by identifying the sound patterns of the caller's voice and amplifying this over background noise, so recipients of calls can hear you without you having to shout.
    When quizzed about whether the new processor would be used in the Galaxy S4, the response was cryptic but in some ways revealing. "We cannot speak about unannounced devices, but Samsung is a big client of ours and our processors are currently in the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and S3 handsets", said Erik Skup, vice president of Applications Engineering at the firm.
    There's one more clue; Audience's press release for the new processor claims that it will go on sale "by the end of April 2013" - which fits in nicely for the Galaxy S4's estimated mid-April launch.
    EYE-TRACKING SCROLL TECHNOLOGY

    All that tedious using your finger to scroll could be a thing of the past if rumours about the new Galaxy S4's eye-tracking scroll technology are anything to go by.
    An anonymous source told the New York Times that the new smartphone will use its front-facing camera to track the position of users' eyes, and so scroll through web pages without you having to leave fingerprints on the screen.

    The story may sound far-fetched, but there is some evidence to back up the theory; in January Samsung filed a patent for a technology called Eye Scroll, which uses a smartphone or tablet's front-facing camera to scroll web pages automatically depending on the user's eye position.
    Eye-tracking technology is also nothing new, as it's used in certain glasses-free 3D displays, but this will be the first time we've seen it applied to scrolling on a smartphone.
    SAMSUNG GALAXY S4 MINI

    The Samsung Galaxy S4 may not be the only handset to carry the Galaxy S4 name. Rumours also point towards the company releasing a cut-down version, possibly called the Galaxy S4 Mini. According to Samsung news site SamMobile, the Galaxy S4 Mini will appeal to those who want a more compact phone for less money.

    This isn’t a new strategy for Samsung; the current Galaxy S3 also has a Mini equivalent. The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini has a lower-resolution 4in 800x480-pixel display instead of a 1,280x720 model and a 1GHz rather than 1.5GHz processor, as well as a lower-specification camera. The S4 Mini is also likely to have a cut-down specification, as well as losing the wireless charging module to save on size and component cost.
