Samsung might launch a new smartphone with wraparound screen
Samsung might soon launch a revolutionary smartphone design with wraparound screen, that has been patented by Samsung Display. The application date is September 2, 2016, while the South Korean patent was already filed in October 2015.
This phone comes with an amazing touchscreen display. The display goes from the front all the way to the rear side of the device, it covers almost half of the back. In July Samsung introduced the Pro 7 dual-screen smartphone series. The second display informs the user about important notifications, the weather, time and music.
However, the Samsung smartphones feature two separate touchscreen displays, while the Samsung patent shows one big screen, which is 180˚ rounded at the side of the device. Samsung has registered a patent, which discloses a smartphone which would have a wraparound screen. Samsung has discovered to be focusing on a potential dual-sided smartphone with a wraparound screen that exercises onto the trunk of these devices. The patent was submitted to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on Sept 2, 2016. However, the concept sketched to show a couple of things.
The device, which has been referred to as a “display device” in the patent, is shown with a big main display screen on the front that wraps around to the trunk where more software may potentially be displayed. The trunk screen appears to be nearly half how big is the front display screen. The drawings’ sturdy lines are the claimed features, while damaged lines are illustrative, and show what all of that other device may look like.
It’s slightly like the edge-to-edge display spilling beyond the edge on one part, and acting as a second display at the back. This “display device” may potentially be the next big Samsung concept smartphone. Currently, the main one by Samsung mongering all the attention is the alleged Galaxy X foldable smartphone. For a while now, the idea smartphone has been put through many leaks, including makes that show what it might appear to be. The smartphone lately received Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi Alliance certification. It is expected to come with a flexible display, as unveiled in the patents. The secondary display is expected to turn on when the smartphone is folded. The bendable section will be through the middle.
