Samsung to intro authentication chip system for Galaxy S6 accessories

Samsung logoSamsung will try and create a new and unmatched ecosystem of accessories around the Galaxy S6, that much we've already heard. The last piece of info coming from Korean media, however, pegs Samsung as taking the Apple way, and introducing authentication chips to be mounted on annointed third-party accessories for the Galaxy S6.

The goal is to increase the number of partners, while at the same time ensuring authentic products and experiences across the board, maximizing accessory profit in the meantime. This is the first time that Samsung will be producing the authentication chips by itself, and shipping them to other accessory makers, as so far only Samsung-made gear has had the chips inside.

As per a Samsung insider, “the decision to mount authentication chips on accessories aims to differentiate the functioning of original products.” The authentication chips, made by the LSI division, will be utilized at first in cases like S View-style flip covers and the like, which need this authentication the strongest. The chips will actually allow the side screens of the Galaxy S6 Edge, for instance, to be used without even flipping the cover open..

Also, since the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S Edge will have a unibody design, which is a first for the flagship line, they will be communicating with the accessories better via those authentication chips and the built-in NFC radios. In any case, Apple has already introduced a similar program for its own accessory ecosystem, and now Samsung might be following suit.
