Samsung files patent for smartphone with fully curved display. Taking the smartphone war in the premium segment to an entirely new level, a new patent from Samsung has revealed fully curved display that goes all the way to the back of the device. The patent filed with the World International Property Office (WIPO) features a 180-degree edge display that curves from the front all the way to the back.
The new device would bring new functionality such as side or top notifications.
The new Samsung phone will replace physical power and volume buttons with virtual ones.
Last year, Samsung filed a patent with the Korean Intellectual Property Office for a smartphone that can be folded in half and is expected to arrive in 2018.
Likely to be called the Galaxy X, the front of the smartphone will sport traditional Samsung home button in between a back button on the right and a menu button on the left.
