Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.’s new Galaxy S IV will feature several new features though no “game changers,” Jan Dawson, chief telecom analyst at U.K.-based research firm Ovum, said in a research note. At a New York City unveiling Thursday, Samsung said its new flagship smartphone, which will hit major markets in April, will feature eye-tracking technology allowing a user to control scrolling capabilities and videos with their eyes, as well as a new S Translator application to translate text into nine languages. The phone also features a “dual camera” mode for photos using the front- and rear-facing cameras simultaneously, and a feature called Samsung Hover for viewing different content on the device by holding a finger a short distance from the screen. “The improvements to eye tracking and the addition of S Translator and the hover feature and so on are good steps in this direction, but they can be seen as gimmicks rather than game changers,” Dawson wrote in a research note Thursday. “At this point, Samsung appears to be trying to kill the competition with sheer volume of new features—there should be something here for everyone, even if most of these new features won't be used by most users.” Wireless blog MobileSyrup said Thursday that Samsung confirmed the device will be available in Canada through Canadian incumbents and new entrants in the second quarter of this year.
