In addition to folding smartphones, Samsung is working on other form factors of mobile devices. One of the latest patents of the South Korean giant describes new ways of interacting with a smartphone, which uses a "streamlined" display covering several sides of the body.
The patent describes a smartphone whose screen continues on the back. The user can activate the desired part of the screen (front or back) by hovering his hand over it or brand stylus S Pen. This solution has a number of useful applications. For example, when shooting someone, a person can see their image in the frame on the rear display. In addition, the presence of an additional screen at the back allows you to use the main camera for selfies.
Another function of such a smartphone can be the ability to translate speech between several people — everyone will see the interlocutor in front of him. In addition, different useful information or notifications can be displayed on the upper edge, where the screen bends around the device body.
Note that the idea with two screens in the smartphone is not new. This was in 7 Pro Meizu, Vivo, NEX Dual Display, the Nubia X and other smartphones, but all of them had two separate display, not a one, the envelope of the building.
