The rumor for foldable display phone has always been on high. Samsung for long has been rumored to work on foldable phones and that much is no surprise. What might be more interesting for Samsung users are the following patent that imagines a flexible tablet that will bend both inwards and outwards to halve the footprint.

Samsung Foldable DisplayIn a recently published new patent, Samsung takes this to the extreme and imagines a device which wraps the screen completely around the smartphone, resulting in a device with a screen on both the front and the back. A smartphone with a flexible display that goes all the way around the smartphone. In other words, the display extends from the front to the sides to the entire rear.

The patent was first filed with WIPO in April 2018 and that received its approval in October. The NLO (Netherlands Patent Office) and the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) have published a patent on 17 October 2018 from Samsung Electronics regarding a Flexible display of electronic device and method for operating the same.

Samsung PatentSamsung imagines all kinds of uses for this new real estate, such as having a photo gallery on one side and opening a photo full screen on the other it also envisions displaying corner buttons for gaming on the edge where they would not overlap with the on-screen display for the game, and a wide variety of other interactions.

Apart from this, Samsung has already come up with 14” rollable OLED panel at SID Display in Los Angeles, USA, back in the last week of May. It is obviously hoped that with the approval of the new patent, the Galaxy X is a step away from being a sci-fi myth and slightly closer to becoming a reality.
