The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 4, which is due to be unveiled at the Samsung unpacked event in a few weeks, is bound to offer some additional functionality over the current Note 3, but of which might include an Ultrasonic Cover for the Note 4, if a recent leak is anything to go by.
According to SamMobile, one of the official accessories due to be announced with the Note 4 will be an Ultrasonic Cover which focuses on assisting those with visual difficulties.
The cover contains numerous sensors that will provide haptic feedback for nearby objects allowing users to be notified of impeding objects.
An insider to the Note 4 development issued a statement detailing the functionality, which has been truncated:
“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.”
Taking accessories to a new level will certainly be a welcome step from consumers and if Samsung can get this one right there’ll be major kudos points up for grabs.
