Smartphones have reformed our life style while manufacturers have altered the design features of modern gadgets; rather in non-stop search for advanced and innovative features making their smartphones distinct from others.
We have seen many brands introducing Full-Screen display and fingerprint scanner in 2017 while Apple managed to present a top-notch storing several sensors in its design for the iPhone X. However, Vivo started the New Year with a bang at the CES 2018 and unveiled the world’s first commercial smartphone equipped with the under-display fingerprint scanner.
Samsung, the South Korean tech giant, is reportedly working on another concept for the forthcoming products to beat everyone. The company is considering a new design to get rid of the phone bezels around the display with a unique design feature. In this context, Samsung filed a patent in World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) last year.
The patent design shows that the upcoming smartphones would have inbuilt tiny holes for the sensors and hardware on the screen. The South Korean manufacturer is going to embed camera and other sensors in those in-display holes. Samsung anticipates that the new design will lead to much larger display experience for the users; almost 100 % full-screen display.
The latest patent reveals that Samsung is actually working on two concepts; in this case, trying to embed sensors into the display itself while another patent design filed by Samsung follows a top-notch design that is somehow similar to iPhone X.
Keep in mind that this is just a patent and no one knows how long Samsung would take to introduce practical application of this unique concept. However, this would be a significant feature indeed to have. Don’t you think so?
