it makes me think of old sony mobiles and nokia eseries handstes... who have this 4 or 5 years ago...
but it will be a mystery what is smart in samsung glowing ring lol.....
Xperia P and U still fare better at this feature. Not sure if everyone will like the ridiculously large bezels though.
Anonymous, 16 Jun 2016awesomebut a solution to bring it on the front would have been better
Again. Fixing something that isn't even broken. So now we need to set our phones face down so we know if there is a notification?
Funny, now Samsung copying Huawei, Huawei Y3 II have same kind of glowing camera ring
Recon this would be gesture notification when u donÂ’t want to be disturbed u place the phone face front downCould be a gesture g
Alex Mohi, 16 Jun 2016LG Did it better in it's L Series , where the home button has a glowing ring around it So? Why would Samsung want to copy something that had been done. I didn't see that feature from LG going into the flagship lines. pfftt!
Well it came from nokia e63, e71, e72, e5.
They all had the nav key ring around it light up also some other last model symbians did it too that I do know of but dont know the model number.
Still have my e72 and e5 as a backup phone.
This came first with HTC Dream on its scroll ball and also with Desire Z on its center home button but not with color variety.
As most have pointed out, I also think the placement on the back takes away from its usefulness. The primary notification light should always be at the front and I think integration into or around the home key or even an illuminating logo would be a much better solution.
How will they know if they have a notification when they have their phone on a table?
LG Did it better in it's L Series , where the home button has a glowing ring around it
but who places his phone face down to the table? they should add the Smart Glow Ring around the home button too, that more practical than around the camera
