The Corana virus quickly captured our daily life and was officially declared a pandemic by the WHO (World Health Organization) . People are now doing their best to slow the spread of the virus. Washing your hands is, for now, one of the most important things you can do for precaution. But it makes no sense to touch a germ phone with clean hands.
Samsung, on the other hand, is one of the companies that are facing Corona virus hit. So much so that the company that closed its factory in South Korea with the Corona virus measure last month adds a new one to the measures it takes. Deciding to develop the measures required by the outbreak, Samsung offers a free “ Galaxy Sanitizing Service ” to clean the phones with UV light .
Galaxy Sanitizing Service cleans the device with UV-C light without using harsh chemicals. When applying UV-C light to the device, Samsung has carefully tested the sterilization devices in the Samsung Service Center to make sure that the phone’s performance is not affected. According to Samsung, the disinfection feature for tablet and Galaxy Smart Watch is only available in The Garden and Pavilion.
Galaxy Sanitizing Service is currently in Argentina, Chile, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Peru, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, USA, Ukraine and Vietnam. Soon, Australia, Austria, Canada, Czechia, France, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Mexico, Netherlands, Panama, Philippines, Romania, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, United It will be in the Arab Emirates and England. Turkey is currently second in the list, but no cases reported today after Samsung, Turkey may also add to the list.
Even if there is no epidemic around us, the phones are very open to catching a germ at any time. Since these devices are always in our hands, it is inevitable to touch our face after leaving them. This innovation from Samsung is a logical step in the face of the epidemic. We hope that the Corona virus will soon be history with technological and scientific developments.
