For South Korean smartphone manufacturer, it seems the world is soon going to end. The company has been recently reported to be working on another innovative technology, 'Transparent Display'. The smartphone giant has also made its resolution for the year ahead and still it chooses to do more. The company is in fact working as if there is no tomorrow.
We have already seen the massive camera phone, curved phone, smart watch, Incredible Note 3 device from the company. The upcoming UHD phone, is also another one that the tech world is waiting to see. Talking about the recently leaked document that reveals the company's transparent display technology, it first appeared on US Patent & Trademark website back in Ocrober.
Thus it means that the company has has already filed a patent application for the upcoming new technology with USPTO (US Patent & Trademark Office). The technology will awestruck the fans as much as its Galaxy Round curved phone did. However, the display could take some time to actually come featuring in the smartphones.
However, the patent filing documents shows that the display will features a series of touch controls placed on the back of a device that packs a display, as well as the manner in which these could help users perform various actions.
Patent Bolt anther site that interpreted the documents says that the users would be able to peek inside folders through touching the back of the device, so as to see what it contains, all without having the view upon the screen obscured by the fingers.
Having the touch controls placed on the back would also allow users to easily move overlapping objects, or bring specific info up on the screen, including notes, photos, and more.
The patent application also mentioned that the panel would also allow users to perform other actions like unlocking the handset, controlling a video playback, and even controlling the alarm clock.
In a nutshell, the latest technology would provide a future smartphone with a transparent display that will be able to accept touch controls on both the front and back side of the transparent display separately or simultaneously to control actions, move icons, control video playback and more.
