The company's new patent gives us a clue about the next possible development of its flexible display technology
After we've gotten used to getting the cool screens in the fringes סמסונג And a number of other manufacturers with whom it agrees to share the splendor of its work, it may be worthwhile to start thinking about the next stage in the development of mobile displays - even more rounded screens that extend across the entire side of the smartphone cover and reach to the back.
A new patent application of the company describes Smart device With such an "ultra-convex" screen, which can offer not only a completely new type of user experience and interface, but also a seemingly more comfortable grip on the device, although it is a bit difficult for us to see how this is practically possible - especially because in such a situation. More limited and much less effective.
The company does not bother to specify what control of the device will look like without any physical buttons at all on its part, but a breakdown of the production technology required for the innovative screen indicates that the company is probably very close to practical mass production of units of this type, and who knows - maybe this is the leading feature of the modelGalaxy X "Flexible screen holder" on which we have been receiving rumors and prophecies for close to a year.
It is difficult for us to decide at this stage whether this is another gimmick that will be used primarily as an opportunity סמסונג To show off the Super technology AMOLED And declare a higher ratio than ever between the screen size and the overall size of the smartphone, or in a novelty that will have a real tangible benefit in the field - but we certainly respect any attempt to innovate and surprise in the field, from any competitor, while continuing to wait many years for folding and flexible really.
