Samsung Galaxy smartphone with 180˚ curved edge display.
New Samsung patent shows Galaxy smartphone with fully curved display, up to the back of the device.
Today, a series of new Samsung patents have been published in the WIPO (World International Property Office) database. One of the patents concerns an application from May '17 for: an electronic device with a curved display on both sides of the device. So no rounded display, but really 180˚ curved, up to the back of the smartphone. There are a series of sketches attached to clarify the design.
On one sketch you can see the regular edge display, with a rounded screen (see illustration above). You also see a smartphone with a round edge. The display is bent 180˚ on each side and extended all the way to the rear of the unit.
Is this the new design for the Galaxy S9/S9+ and Note 9 ?
How many upcoming devices will Samsung show at CES 2018 alongside the in-out and out-in foldable phones aka Galaxy X?
