Apple aren't the only ones trying to steal some of that Galaxy S IV thunder from Samsung, with LG announcing that there is an update in the works that will see eye-recognition software on their Optimus G Pro smartphone, and others.




The update will roll out in Korea next month, with the new LG Smart Video feature allowing users to control their smartphone video player with eye movements. The trick is done by using the front-facing camera to keep track of your eyes, so that if you're watching a video and look away from the smartphone, the video will pause until your eyes reach the screen again.


LG will also provide in their "Value Pack", a new dual-camera function which lets you simultaneously take a picture with both the front- and rear-facing cameras.
