Firstly, the Ultrasonic Cover allows users to navigate unfamiliar places by sending an alert through vibration or TTS feedback. The cover senses objects or people from up to two metres away, increasing a visually impaired user's awareness of their surroundings. The Optical Scan Stand positions the Galaxy Core Advance to focus on printed materials, automatically activating the Optical Scan application, which can recognise and read aloud text from an image.
The three accessories are sold separately from the Galaxy Core Advance device, and are already available to purchase.
The Galaxy Core Advance was announced in December 2013, with the specific goal of extending Samsung's technology to a greater range of users. Samsung says it plans to expand accessibility of its other Galaxy devices in the future.
