Samsung was one of the very first smartphone manufacturers to embrace a curved screen with its Galaxy lineup. Since that time, various other OEMs also have contained the tech, but it seems like Samsung plans on carrying it a move further with its new patent.
The newest patent from Samsung reveals a new display technology, including curved borders but on all four corners. Ordinarily, a curved display was prominent only on either side. However, Samsung appears to be extending the screen beyond the lower chin and upper notches too. The patent includes seven patented images along with a brief description.
The South Korean tech giant had initially registered a patent back in July 2019 at China in the SNIPA (Chinese National Intellectual Property Administration). This was finally published on 24th March 2020 and is now also included in the Global Style Database of the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office). As a result of LetsGoDigital, we finally have 3D renders of the patented display technologies.
Let’s See images; the most striking part is the curved screen extending past the top and reduced bezels. Instead, only the corners now have bezels and are hardly from the front. The Samsung device includes an entirely exceptional and futuristic design, as well as a rounded edge. These corners, which contain the metallic frame, may also serve the aim of durability, assisting the smartphone in surviving falls.
Judging from their plan, no physical buttons or camera modules could be observed on the sides or front. This leads to the possibility of Samsung, such as an in-display fingerprint reader, using a selfie camera below the screen as well. Unfortunately, it is currently unknown if Samsung will create this type of product or not. So stay tuned for more.
