Samsung Electronics has announced the expansion of user experience on its Galaxy Core Advance, with three new accessories for users that require special assistance.
The new accessories; Ultrasonic Cover, Optical Scan Stand, and Voice Label are designed with the needs of specific communities in mind, according to Samsung.
Ultrasonic Cover is designed to allow users detect obstacles and navigate unfamiliar places by sending an alert through a vibration. Visually impaired persons will find it useful as it helps create awareness, sensing the presence of a person or object up to 2 meters away.
Optical Scan Stand recognizes text from an image and reads it aloud to the user when focused on printed materials. Voice Label assists users in distinguishing objects by allowing them to make notes and tag voice labels easily on-the-go.
The new Galaxy Core Advance accessories are already available. They are offered separately from the device. Samsung plans to expand accessibility of other Galaxy devices in the future.
The Samsung Galaxy Core Advance comes with a 4.7 inch WVGA TFT screen, Krait Dual Core 1.2 GHz processor, 5.0 megapixel camera, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system, 1GB RAM plus 8GB Internal Memory and microSD (memory card) up to 64GB. Other features and services include Sound & Shot, Group Play, S Translator, Easy Mode, S Voice, S Beam, Instant Voice Recorder, Optical Scan, Light Sensing, Voice Guidance (TTS, Voice Guided Camera and Text Reader) and FM Radio
