We have been coming across several early speculations about the next generation Samsung flagship smartphones. The recent one tips that the Galaxy S9 might feature an air quality sensor.
If a recent patent filing by Samsung is to be believed, we can expect the upcoming flagship - the Galaxy S9 to feature an environmental sensor. Samsung has revealed that it has filed a patent in the last year for an environmental sensor that can measure the quality of air by analyzing the various particles in the air, claims a report by Galaxy Club.
It could be surprising to many to know that an air sensor could be small enough to fit into a smartphone but Samsung has shown that it is possible. The patent seems to show a few sketches that detail how the company has been able to incorporate an air sensor on a smartphone.
The sketches show that the air sensor is designed to be flat and is incorporated into the display substrate. It is claimed to be capable of measuring the various particles in the air. The details regarding how air will reach the flexible AMOLED display's glass substrate remains unknown for now.
As of now, we cannot assure that this new patent will lead to the incorporation of an air sensor on the Samsung Galaxy S9 but there is no means to say that it is impossible. We say so as we have already seen many Samsung patents those were filed and never came to light. Also, there is increased possibility for the air sensor to be implemented in a future Samsung flagship smartphone that could be launched in the coming years.
