Seoul, South Korea — A new feature that LG Electronics will add to its flagship Optimus G Pro smartphone will automatically pause video playback when a user’s eyes stray from the screen.

 The feature, called Smart Video, uses the Android phone’s front-facing camera to detect when a user’s eyes wander.

 The Optimus G Pro smartphone, already available in Korea, is the company’s biggest-screen phone to date, with a 5.5-inch IPS display. It’s also the company’s first smartphone with FullHD 1080p display and one of the industry’s first LTE smartphones with quad-core 1.7GHz CPU.

 The phone was unveiled at the Mobile World Congress, but U.S. availability hasn’t yet been announced.

The feature will be available as part of a software update in Korea along with a Video Pause/Resume feature, which lets users stop and start video recording but create one continuous video file.
