Germicidal ultraviolet light harnesses a portion of the electromagnetic spectrum that contains short waves of radiant energy, called UV-C. This wavelength is further away from the visible spectrum than other forms of UV light, basically gives viruses a lethal sunburn. If you were to implement this into a portable face mask cleaner, it would probably look something like the Samsung 0° Clean by Jungkwang Hwang.

Samsung Electronics has been known to reveal some interesting concepts at trade shows over the years, but this recently filed utility patent with the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) and the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) might actually become a reality. Published on August 27, 2020, the sketches appear to describe a transparent smartphone, but the technology itself could eventually be used in other consumer electronics products, like televisions, monitors, laptop screens, game consoles and even cameras.
Set to be officially revealed at Samsung’s Unpacked event on August 5th, technology leaker Evan Blass provides us with the best look yet at the upcoming Galaxy Note 20. Featuring a 6.42-inch (2345 x 1084 pixels) display with 120Hz refresh rate, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 or an Exynos 990 chipset, depending on the market, 12GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and a 4000mAh battery.
Unlike other televisions, the 43-inch Samsung Sero can deliver a mobile-optimized experience, thanks to a rotating screen that automatically mirrors smartphone content. Users can also rotate the screen by remote control, voice command or with the SmartThings app. It’s not just cool to look at, as the screen is also equipped with a multi-channel audio system consisting of 60W 4.1ch front-firing speakers.
Samsung Electronics announced that it will introduce new eco-packaging across its Lifestyle TV product portfolio in efforts to reduce the environmental footprint. These special boxes will be made from corrugated cardboard and used on the The Serif, The Frame as well as The Sero television sets, enabling customers to easily recycle or upcycle them.
