You Don’t Need to Buy Pulse Oximeter If You Have Samsung Mobile Phone, Since the Coronavirus is spreading like wildfire, hoarders are benefiting from this situation and selling the Pulse Oximeter (device to measure heart rate and Oxygen saturation) for a heck of a price. In December 2019, a normal Pulse Oximeter which was being sold for Rs. 1,200-1,500 (8$-10$) is now selling for Rs. 6,000-8,000 (40$-50$.
If you need a Pulse Oximeter and you own one of the Samsung phones from the following list, you can use the Sensor located at the back of the phone. The sensor works accurately and is certified by “HEART RHYTHM SOCIETY” of the United States.
Models with the sensor:
Galaxy S5 / S5 Neo / S6 / S7 / S8 / S9 / S10 and Edge versions as well as Galaxy Note 4 / 5 / 7 / FE / 8.
This sensor provides information about oxygen saturation. Could be helpful if some people are given oxygen at their homes.
