A recent patent filed by Samsung revealed the company’s effort in developing a 3D curved display, apparently for smartphones. And this time Samsung has gone the extra mile to highlight how they achieved it in detail.
As you can see, the above image speaks for itself. We are talking about a rounded smartphone. And if you pay attention to the above image you’ll notice that it shows two models, both look similar except for the fact that the frame edge of one device is thicker than the other one.
There is denying the fact that the center of attraction of this model is the curved display. And Samsung played smart to develop such a design. The display is actually flat on the front, but what makes it “3D curved” is the four curved display module around it.
You’ll notice the curve at the back side too. Yes, that’d make the thickness of the smartphone less homogenous. The middle of the smartphone would get thicker, thicker than its edges.
The design which you are seeing doesn’t come with the ugly(?) square camera bump at the back. However, things could change and the actual design might differ from what you are seeing right now.
Talking about the front camera, you don’t a get a pop-up selfie camera. Samsung puts them in the curved display area. The company also made some arrangements to make sure that you don’t get to experience image distortion while taking selfies.
The current Galaxy S10 didn’t offer a massive upgrade and therefore, it only makes sense for Samsung to finally do their pending job by introducing the 3D curved display in the upcoming Galaxy S11 or whatever the company wants to call it. And if all goes well you might get to see a 3D curved display in the first half of the next year.
