Samsung is going to introduce an alternative to the notification LED soon called “Smart Glow,” it’s going to be an illuminated ring around the camera lens on the back which lights up for notifications. Users will be able to set up the feature to display priority alerts about incoming messages or calls, usage alerts, battery status, and more.

It won’t just be limited to replacing the notifications LED. It’s also going to help users take pictures of themselves with the rear camera. Since that can prove to be a bit tricky as opposed to taking a selfie with a front camera, the Smart Glow ring will illuminate when it detects the face and the photo will then be taken in a few seconds. Samsung is expected to introduce Smart Glow in the upcoming Galaxy J2 (2016) which will be launched in India. It’s unclear at this point in time whether this feature will make it to flagship handsets like the Galaxy Note 7.
