Samsung files Patent for Wraparound Display

Smartphones get a little cooler each year, and while “flexible displays” have been the talk of the town, the G Flex and Galaxy Round don’t really have that WOW factor. That may change next year if Samsung has their way, and they’ve just filed a new patent to try and lock their concept down.

Samsung’s patent is for “Method and Apparatus for Operating Functions of Portable Terminal Having Bended Display.” In layman’s terms, this means you’ll be able to use the sides “curved” device to handle certain tasks and functions. Want to bookmark something? Just touch/hold and drag it to the side of your curved display.samsung.patent-2

The new display should allow people to keep a constant eye on things like stock tickers while getting rid of some physical buttons in the process. There are several pictures included with the patent that show some of the features planned for the new tech. While nothing is set in stone, they have showed a form of tabbed browsing (tabs on the side) for your contacts and books, and things could really get interesting when you take into account all the sensors devices have now along with features like tilt to pan.samsung.patent-1

While Samsung’s patent still has nothing to do with a real “flexible” display, it is a cool concept that should be headed your soon. If you take a look at the article we did on SEL’s CAAC-OS displays last week, you’ll see the technology is already there. If Samsung can do anything half as cool as SEL did with their displays, you can expect to see huge sales from the company next year and consumers will finally get a device that brings something new to the table.
