Samsung silently designed an unprecedented smartphone

Like the ambition of all other smartphone vendors, Samsung is working on a phone with a truly full-screen design.

Samsung may not adopt the waterfall display design that Huawei introduced this year with the Mate 30 Pro, but it’s a way to minimize the device sides, although an extremely high screen curvature might be easy. more damaged. And Samsung is also considering ways to permanently remove the top and bottom borders.

Blog LetsGoDigital (Netherlands) has discovered a patent application from Samsung earlier this year showing a phone design with a screen surrounded 3D, beyond all four sides and imagining such a device. What might look like based on illustrations from the web.

The phone doesn’t have physical buttons, but virtual buttons are placed along the edges of the screen in some patented images. There is no selfie camera, this implies that the selfie camera is located below the screen. For curved edges, they exceed the kind of curvature available on Galaxy S10 and Note10 phones. According to the patent, this device will have improved impact resistance in a bended area.

Samsung was not the first company to study such smartphone designs when the screen design surrounding Apple’s iPhone was revealed a few years ago in a similar patent document. However, all these smartphone manufacturers may be waiting for other technological breakthroughs for such designs to become a reality.

At least two things need to happen before the phone’s screen becomes a reality. First, screen manufacturers have to make screens with built-in selfie cameras and glass manufacturers need to make glasses stronger. A third major improvement relates to wireless charging, allowing phone makers to bypass charging ports.

As with other patents, it is not known when Samsung will start making phones as the idea shown in the illustration, but probably not next year.
