The notification light on your smartphone can probably flash to let you know when you’ve received a message. But Samsung seems to be working on a new notification light that takes things to another level.
It’s called Smart Glow, and it’s ring that circles the rear camera that can glow in different colors for different circumstances.
Samsung hasn’t officially announced Smart Glow yet, but leaked documents for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy J2 smartphone explain how it will work.
In addition to letting you know about calls, messages, and other notifications, the Smart Glow light can alert you when the battery is low or when you’re running out of storage space on your phone.
You can also use a Selfie Assist option to snap self portraits with your phone’s rear camera: the phone will beep and the Smart Glow light will turn blue to let you know that your face is detected and then Samsung’s camera app will automatically snap a photo two second later.
Samsung lets users choose which alerts will be displayed on the Smart Glow ring and select which colors to associate with each event.
