The latest patent filed by Samsung reveals a curved smarthpone on all sides. After the manufacturer has turned the curved screen on the sides in a trend, the new patent shows the extent of this curvature to the top and “chin” of a device.
The LetsGoDigital site has produced 3D rendersthat give us insight into how the smartphone can look in terms of appearance. The images show us a device with very small margins, in what can really be considered the true infinite screen.
Patent shows camera and sensors below the screen
The front camera and sensors are in this patent underneath the screen. There is no sign of a biometric sensor in the rear, so it is also embedded in the screen. The concept has only one button on the right side and has two chambers on its back.
Looking at the look of the device gives the idea that we are looking for an “inflatable smartphone”. To achieve the curvature at all edges, the idea is that this will be a slippery smartphone in hand. The patent speaks on an aluminum back, but to be affixed to the brand will certainly be in glass to accommodate wireless charging.
Honor launched a smartphone with this ideology in 2016
Design with curved sides is not something new. Honor (Huawei sub-brand) launched in 2016 Honor Magic with such a curvature. The big difference between both devices is that Honor has larger margins, typical of the year it was released.
We must take into account that this is a patent and that if it ever gets marketed, the look will be optimized for day-to-day use. For now there is no information that one day this project see the light of day.
