LG Announces Optimus G Pro Eye Recognition Feature, Beats Samsung To It, Sort Of


Samsung’s Galaxy S IV, to be unveiled today, might or might not feature eye-tracking technology, depending on who you believe, but, LG’s Optimus G Proseen at MWC — will definitely bring some of that to the table real soon, according to the South Korean manufacturer.

Smart Video is the Optimus G Pro’s new feature, to be unveiled soon, that will eliminate the use of user physical interaction with the device while viewing video. To quote LG: “Smart Video recognizes the position of the viewer’s eyes and automatically plays or stops the video without any manual input from the user”.

Using the front-facing camera the software will detect whether the user’s eyes are aimed at the display, automatically pausing when you look away (and resuming when you look back).

Not as exciting, but still part of the announcement, is the Dual Camera functionality which will snap pictures simultaneously using both the front and back cameras; users will be able to share a picture-in-picture still. Also in will be an option to customize Smart LED Lighting (surrounding the home button) for different colors.

The above are all part of a Value Pack that will be rolled out to the Optimus G Pro in Korean over the next month, being available for some LG premium smartphones in the future.
