The technology will track user's eyes to determine where to scroll.

Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S IV smartphone, is believed to feature an 'eye scroll.' The feature is a built-in eye-tracking technology, which will track user's eyes to determine where to scroll.

Samsung filed for a trademark in Europe for the name 'Eye Scroll' in January 2013 and also filed for the 'Samsung Eye Scroll' trademark in the US in February.

Samsung revealed that the new service is a computer application software that senses eye movements and scrolling displays of mobile devices, including mobile phones, smartphones and tablet computers.

According to the New York Times when users read articles and their eyes reach the bottom of the page, the software would automatically scroll down and display the next paragraphs of text.

The new smartphone would be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor and its GPU is PowerVR 544MP.

Samsung's existing smartphone, the Galaxy S III, already features a Smart Stay software that keeps an eye on users through front-facing camera.

The new phone is expected to launch on 14 March 2013,
