Some recent documents have been leaked regarding the upcoming Samsung Galaxy J2. They show off a new feature called Samsung Smart Glow. Essentially this is an LED ring that will notify you when your phone is face down. The LED ring in the image surrounds the camera and could potentially be helpful when taking rear facing selfies. This feature is not expected to land on the Note 7, but could possibly be included on the Galaxy S8. Who knows this feature may be relegated to the J series.
I for one would love a feature like this since my phone stays screen down most of the time. I have really enjoyed the edge notification for incoming calls, but it would be even better to have some sort of led indicator for all other types of notifications. Some might argue they turn their phone face down to rid the annoyance an LED notification causes while trying to sleep.
What are your thoughts? Is a rear facing notification LED something that would be helpful to you?
