With the Galaxy J2 (2016)
, Samsung is trying a new take on the good ol' LED notification light - an LED ring around the camera, dubbed Smart Glow
. It can light up in different colors depending on the caller, the battery charge status, or even be partially illuminated to help you fit your face completely in the frame when doing a selfie with the rear snapper.
The other crazy plans for Smart Glow include weather alerts, and health measurements like heart rate, and so on - Samsung will be betting big on the new idea, it seems. It is test-driving the Smart Glow ring with the J2 at first, and what you are seeing above is the first image of what it will actually look like, not concept renders or schematics in the manual
It's a bit wider than we expected, but we have to see it in action before we pass any judgment over Samsung's rear take on the venerable notification light paradigm.
