Samsung has this very trend of introducing surplus accessories when ever it introduces a new flagship device. As seen in the past, these accessories include different cases, screen protectors, various headphones and headsets, wireless chargers and a lot more. Since the Galaxy Note 4 launch is less then 2 weeks away, all eyes are now on this event and what’s going to accompany the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
Folks over Sammobile have learnt that Samsung is going to introduce an ultrasonic cover for the Galaxy Note 4. The primary purpose of this ultrasonic cover is to help the people suffering through visual impairment. According the to the reports and sources, the ultrasonic cover will basically consists of an ultrasonic sensor, that will tell the device owner about the nearby objects and obstacles. Users will be able to change the range of the ultrasonic signals and choose from three different levels including short, middle and long, but increasing the range of the ultrasonic signals will result in narrowing the area covered by the ultrasonic cover.
