In early September, Samsung will announce its latest Galaxy Note phablet, which will be better than any of its predecessor. One of the rumor we’ve heard before suggests that this device may come with the ability to measure the Sun’s radiation, and provide an appropriate feedback to the user.
Now we have another health-based information, claiming that Koreans are developing an Ultrasonic Cover for the Note 4. Said cover consists of an ultrasonic sensor that can detect nearby objects in front, and provide feedback to people with vision-related disabilities. Users will also be able to tweak the range of ultrasonic signals and choose between three levels: short, middle and long. However, with an increased range of ultrasonic signals, the width of the area covered by the ultrasonic sensor will get narrower.
This, according to SamMobile, is the product’s exact description:
The Product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. This Product is a non-medical device.
It cannot replace a cane and should never be used as a mobility aid or substitute for any mobility aid tool. It must always be used in combination with a cane, a dog guide, or a human guide because, by itself, it does not provide information necessary for safe travel.
We strongly recommend you to educate yourself fully and abide by the operating procedures of this manual before your first use. Furthermore, we encourage you to train yourself with how to use the Product and be sure to have fully understood how the Product works correctly. We are not responsible for or liable for any misuse of the Product or incorrect interpretation of the Product manual. While using the Product in training, it is strongly recommended that you work with a sighted friend who can give you visual feedback, particularly when you work with more advanced skills.
The Product does not detect drop-offs. When doing exercises that require hand scanning, make sure that you use an area without steps or drop-offs, and without car or pedestrian traffic.
The Product does not provide the scope and detail of information obtained through vision and the coverage area/range may vary due to circumstances.
Users should always remove headphones from their ears when approaching and crossing intersections or when walking through areas that include business driveways, parking lots, or alleys where traffic might cross the path of travel.
For further warnings and disclaimers, please refer to the Product manual.
Samsung has scheduled its UNPACKED 2014 Episode 2 event for September 3rd. At that time, we hope to get all details about the Note 4 and few other devices. Stay tuned as we bring you more.
