Samsung readying an Ultrasonic Cover for Galaxy Note 4


It’s known that Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note phablet will be accompanied by a plethora of official accessories. One of the interesting add-ons for the Note 4 will be an Ultrasonic Cover, which is said to be designed to help people with vision related disabilities.

According to a report from SamMobile, the new cover will consist of an ultrasonic sensor that will detect the nearby objects and provide feedback. It is said that the consumers will be able to change the range of the signals and get to choose between three levels – short, middle and long.

You can check out the description of the accessory below:

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 alleyswhere traffic might cross the path of travel.
For further warnings and disclaimers, please refer to the Product manual.

Samsung has already sent out press invites for its UNPACKED 2014 Episode 2 event in Berlin on September 3. The Ultrasonic Cover is expected to be showcased alongside the Galaxy Note 4.
