Manufacturers are equipping smartphones with larger screens, but also actively increase the screen share, and the use of curved screens naturally become the first choice of many manufacturers. Curved screens bring many benefits, first by visually increasing the screen share, and second by providing a rounded interactive experience in the upper hand.
The curved screen is currently mainly on both sides, but in Samsung’s latest patent, it outlines a smartphone with curved screens on all sides. The metal frame is still preserved in the four corners to improve the overall robustness.
The design patent was filed with the State Intellectual Property Office of China (CNIPA) in July 2019 and published on 24 March 2020, after which it was included in the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) Global Design Database. A few months ago, the same design was registered in Korea.
The patent contains seven patent pictures and brief descriptions. To get a better feel for the patented design, Jermaine Smit, the designer of YouTube’s popular channel, Concept Creator, created a series of 3D renderings for LetsGoDigital based on patented drawings.
As can be seen from the picture, this Samsung smartphone has a borderless design. In addition to the left and right sides, the top and bottom are curved screen designs. This creates a symmetrical design with a futuristic look and feel.
There is no front-facing camera on the front of the fuselage, andmedia speculation may be as well equipped under the screen as the underscreen fingerprint sensor. If the phone’s patented design becomes a reality, it is an elegant, particularly rounded design with a completely symmetrical design.
