Samsung Patents An integrated Breathalyzer For Mobile Devices
Samsung Patents An integrated Breathalyzer For Mobile Devices – The patent exists but we still have no concrete plans” to include it in any device, a Samsung spokeswoman said.
The breathalyzer will be a kind of pen-like appendage on the phone that would also measure the intensity of breathing and even bad breath.
The company Samsung has patented an integrated alcohol meter for mobile devices, the company confirmed, suggesting that the South Korean technology giant could include such functionality in its next terminals.
Portable Device With Exhalation Detection
“The patent exists but we still have no concrete plans” to include it in any device, a Samsung spokeswoman said. Samsung filed an application to patent a “portable device with exhalation detection function” in June 2016 at the United States Patent and Trademark Office, which was approved on July 27, according to the online document.
The Samsung breathalyzer will look like an S Pen and will be built into the handset itself, unlike other similar ones that are a separate piece that must be connected to the device itself or do not measure alcohol levels immediately.
This new component incorporates a gas detector that automatically detects the breath of the user when speaking and a unit of analysis that measures alcohol levels and shows them in an application built into the terminal, as detailed the request.
The pencil, which protrudes at the bottom of the terminal and is flexible to accommodate the movements of the interlocutor, also has a microphone to measure the intensity of breathing.
New Galaxy Note 8
Samsung argues in the text that the device has “variety of functions,” including a measure of “bad breath.” The application would also have a history of measurements to help the user to follow-up.
The recent leak of the features of the new Galaxy Note 8, due for release next week, does not show any similar components, so the company may be debating whether to include it in a model for 2018 or 2019.
