INTRO: With the rise of the Novel Coronavirus, we have seen an array of sanitization devices pop up in the market. We saw Samsung take the required steps by introducing the “Galaxy Sanitizing Service“. Now, the electronics giant has released a replacement UV sterilizer for smartphones and other daily objects.
The Seoul-based company recently announced the launch of its new UV sterilizer via a politician blog post. According to the corporate, with the new sanitization device, users can “quickly disinfect [their] smartphone, earbuds, and glasses in only 10 minutes, wherever [they] are.”
The Samsung UV sterilizer, consistent with the blog post, is manufactured by Samsung’s partner under the Samsung Mobile Accessory Partnership Program (SMAPP), Samsung C&T. According to reports from The Verge’s, the further news of the UV sterilizer first came via Samsung Thailand. But, now, the device is available in most countries of the world.
Now, coming straight to the features and specs of the UV sterilizer. It works a bit like the opposite smartphone sanitization devices available within the market. The device features dual UV-C lights that are ready to sanitize both the front and therefore the back of the smartphone inside.
Also, it is quite consistent with Samsung, that the UV sterilizer has “a sleek and minimal design” and may fit smartphones up to 7-inches, alongside other things like wireless earbuds and sunglasses.
Apart from sanitizing the smartphone inside, the UV sterilizer also doubles as a 10W wireless charger. So, the device can jazz up your smartphone while killing off the harmful germs and bacteria, very similar to Mophie and InvisibleShield’s UV-C sanitization devices.
Currently, the Samsung UV sterilizer is out there from select online and retail stores. The device carries a price tag of around $65 (~Rs 4870), which is cheaper than other devices as far as concerned related to this use.
