CNET News Video: Samsung packs features in Galaxy S4

2:08 /

Samsung demos its new dual-camera feature, which allows you to take two pictures at once from the front and rear; an eye-tracking feature that lets you pause and resume video when you look away and back; and hand gesture tech that allows you to start a call with the wave of a hand.

-With the new dual camera feature not only can Patrick get great pictures and video of little Jeremy who's so nervous, he could throw up, but, Patrick can also be in the video. Pretty much every smartphone out there today has two cameras. The main camera on the back that also shoots video and the front-facing camera that you can use to take pictures of yourself. With the Galaxy S4, Patrick can shoot video with both at the same time. You can capture the scene he's looking at while also inserting himself in it. And the dual camera mode can be turned on and off by clicking a button on the screen. Then when viewed, the video will switch from the full screen video, taken with the main camera to the dual screen taken with both. That way, you can be in the whole video if you want to or pop in and out. Another great feature is our air gesture. It allows you to navigate the phone without actually touching it. With air gesture, you can fast forward or rewind, move apps around, look at photos, even browse the hub, all with just a swipe of your hand. And if you're working on an e-mail or browser, you can move your hand vertically and the page behind the one you're viewing will appear. Oh, I wanna talk about the Samsung's Smart Scroll and Smart Pause. Yes, that's a revolutionary innovation based on the Galaxy S3's Smart Stay. This allows the Galaxy S4 to detect whether or not you're looking at the phone. So, if Diddy was watching a video and something caught her eye, the Galaxy S4 will automatically pause the video so that you don't lose track. Freaky. And when she looks back to the S4, will it start again? Yup. Diddy, look back at your phone. -Do I have to? -You have to. Come on.
