Nowadays, manufacturers have to rely increasingly on innovation and unique features to make their smartphones reach the desired popularity. After seeing ZTE and Vivo take a new approach by launching dual-screen smartphones, Samsung could soon follow suit.
According to a patent filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), Samsung may already be developing a smartphone that comes equipped with two displays.
What can we expect from this new design?
As we saw on the Nubia Z20 and Vivo NEX Dual Display, this smartphone would come with a main screen that occupies the vast majority of the front panel and a smaller one on its back. Regarding the front panel, we see that it still has margins, albeit quite small.
On the back panel, the patent only shows a double chamber, which would most likely be changed to a triple or even quadruple chamber if it eventually hits the market. As for the rear panel display, it is considerably smaller, though it should be large enough to be fully functional.
As with the two smartphones mentioned above, Samsung will not have to worry about positioning a front camera. Thanks to the second screen, it is now possible to use the main module also to selfies and video calls.
Although no reference is made to the patent data, it is assumed that this smartphone would arrive equipped with at least one OLED panel, where the fingerprint reader would be integrated.
However, it is important to remember that for now, we only have information revealed by a patent. Every year the big brands register dozens of patents that end up, or not, being reflected in mass production products. Still, it is interesting to find that Samsung may also be considering betting on this type of design.
