Samsung has proposed a very unusual design solution for smartphones with a flexible display: development information is published on the website of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
We are talking about the device in a classic monoblock case without the possibility of transformation or folding. At the same time, the screen of the smartphone due to the flexibility will be able to move up and down, closing or opening a small section in the upper part of the device. In this “hidden” area, Samsung offers to install a front camera and all kinds of sensors.
Thus, the user will have at their disposal a smartphone with a completely frameless display, which occupies almost the entire area of the front surface of the case. If necessary, it will be possible to slightly slide the display down by opening the selfie camera and sensors.
It is important to note that when the display is shifted, the smartphone will be able to automatically perform certain actions depending on the current state. For example, moving the panel down on the “home” screen automatically activates the camera. And when you receive a message through the messenger, a similar movement activates the virtual keyboard.
Alas, nothing is said about the timing of the implementation of the proposed constructive solution.
