Samsung was granted 20 new design patents by the US Patent and Trademark Office, these patents were related to designs for smartphones that might see the light of day in the future. One of the designs mentioned in these patents points to a smartphone with a slightly curved design which would give way for a curved display. The patent provides an interesting look in to designs that are yet to be fashioned in to giant display touting powerhouses.
The official patent title is noted as “mobile terminal” and towards the end, its regarded to as a “mobile phone.” Another interesting and unique idea is shown off with respect to the rear camera’s design. It appears to have a component that flips out, perhaps that could function as a shade when taking pictures in bright daylight? We’re merely speculating about this. As is the case with technologies that are patented, one can’t be sure if they’ll ever see the light of day. We can’t really be sure if Samsung intends to releasing smartphones with slightly curved designs displays in the very near future.
