It is possible that soon flagship Samsung smartphones will acquire a new sensor system, as reported by LetsGoDigital.
We are talking about integration into the cellular apparatus of the spectrometer. The development is called "Electronic device containing many light sources." Information about this system was published on the websites of the United States Office for Patents and Trademarks (USPTO) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
The South Korean giant offers to equip smartphones with an additional sensor unit, which can be located next to the rear camera. The composition of this module will include radiation sources in the visible and infrared ranges of the electromagnetic spectrum.
By registering the signal reflected from one or another object, the device will be able to conduct a certain analysis. For example, with the help of a spectrometer built into the smartphone, users can analyze the state of their skin, control the heart rate, determine the amount of sugar in fruits, etc.
Observers believe that the spectrometer can be part of future flagship smartphones Galaxy S11: in this case, it will be located next to the multi-module camera on the rear panel of the case. However, Samsung itself does not say anything about plans to implement the solution.
