- No word on whether the feature will be present in company’s Note 7
- Leaked images of J2(2016) show the “Smart Glow” notification ring
The latest leaked pictures of 2016 edition of Samsung J2 may have given us a glimpse of a feature that could also make its way to Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note line-up, if it is received well by the users. The leaked images show the Smart Glow notification ring that was first leaked last month.
The pictures have ‘confirmed’ that the Smart Glow notification ring will be situated at back of the phone around the camera lens and will glow whenever a notification pops up. According to the document leaked last month, users can customise the colour of the Smart Glow and decide what colour they want for a specific kind of a notification.
The Smart Glow ring will act as an alternative to the current notification LED and will also come equipped with a feature called “Selfie Assist”. With this feature, the notification ring will automatically turn to a particular colour as soon as it detects a face, is focussed, and ready to capture the image.
According to the leaks, customising the ring will also give it the ability to indicate if the battery level is low. “Smart Glow” will also be able to change colour depending on the priority or usage alerts, and other functions.
As of now, there is no word whether the “Smart Glow” will also be present on the Galaxy Note 7 expected to launch on August 2. However, several reports have suggested that the South Korean smartphone manufacturer will pack an iris scanner on its next Galaxy Note phablet
