Samsung patent hints at what the Galaxy Note 4 could look like


youm-feature

A Samsung official recently said that the Galaxy Note 4 would feature a “new form factor,” and the most prevalent speculation was that this form factor would entail a three-sided display, especially since a Galaxy Note device with such a display has been the talk of rumors quite a few times in the past. Samsung has already demoed a three-sided curved display on a prototype device last year, and now, a patent application that has appeared online could be a good hint at what the Galaxy Note 4 could look like, provided the Korean manufacturer does opt for a curved display to front the new form factor.

The patent application shows a device concept, which reduces the chances of it making it to an actual product any time soon. However, the concept itself is pretty interesting: instead of a display that just folds to the side, the display in the concept folds all the way to the back on either side of the device. A separate patent had earlier revealed that Samsung has been toying with a new interface concept with such a wraparound display in mind, which, along with the company’s statements about a new form factor on the Galaxy Note 4, certainly make this concept one of the candidates for the new form factor on Samsung’s next phablet.

    Still a patent, plausible but could be used for it.

    That looks pretty cool, but I really don’t think that is what people want.

    I like new phones, and I like new phones being really new in their designs.
    I have had two galaxy notes so far, and because I have fairly fat fingers, especially when it comes to using my thumb on the screen…
    So when the note has a big screen, and the stylus to help with typing, I love it.
    If a new note allowed you to have a custom row of buttons on the side, that Could be helpful…
    If you could pick between the left and right side for some custom buttons, that Could be helpful…
    But being that I’m prone to hitting the wrong thing by accident, if those side buttons were fixed, like traditional
    Hardware buttons usually are, and they are on both sides of the phone, I can see my self hitting those things
    By accident quite often…
    Otherwise if those side buttons are actually part of one big curved touch screen … That could be problematic for
    All of the custom rom hackers… But what ever, keep all of the new wacky designs coming! It just makes Apple
    Seem even more bland with their iPhones rather static design.
