A new type of LED notification system will be featured in the upcoming Galaxy J2 (2016) as per reports. In fact, we may begin to see this feature embedded in all future Samsung smartphones soon enough. The news was shared by GalaxyClub.nl after they found the feature mentioned in the upcoming J2's leaked manual.
The hardware of the Smart Glow feature is a pretty simplistic LED ring that's capable of flashing in various colors. As you can see in the image, the ring will be encompassing the rear camera module of the phone. Now, the usefulness of the LED ring lies in its functionalities and here are the ones we know about at this time.
1. You will be able to set specific colors for specific contacts, so when a notification arrives, you will know who it is from, even without turning the phone around and from a distance.
2. It will indicate low battery like regular LED notifiers do.
3. The Smart Glow will enable the user to take efficient selfies with its rear camera as well, because it will emit a blue light as soon as the subject's face is within the sensor's viewfinder.
Personally, we like the last one the most and users will probably find it to be the most useful as well.
