Samsung plans to make a smartphone that could display holographic icons

Samsung has always been at the forefront of display technology. It was the first major smartphone manufacturer to use a Super AMOLED display and also the first smartphone vendor to use a dual curved display. Two months back, we also reported about ‘Project Valley‘, an upcoming smartphone from the company that might feature a foldable display.

Now, Patently Mobile has stumbled upon patent application from Samsun, which was filed with the USPTO pointing towards a smartphone with a display that can project hologram or holographic icons. The images filed in the patent application showcases a mobile phone display, a light guide member above it, and an entrance optical member.

As you can see in the images below, when the screen corresponding to the entrance optical member emits light, a holographic image is displayed above the light guide member. In simpler words, the display can project selected contents such as icons in a holographic manner for a true-to-life 3D experience.

This patent application was filed by the South Korean smartphone giant back in Q3 2014, but we can’t say for sure if Samsung will release such a smartphone in the near future. Can Samsung one day make smartphones and tablets with holographic displays that were showcased in the Avengers: Age Of Ultron movie? We certainly hope so!

    Unfortunately that is not true. Apple will just buy the display from Samsung the same way they bought millions of Samsung displays for their iPhones in the past.

    Only Samsung has reserved the right to time releases of all new hardware now in development for themselves first. On things where they literally have no competition….. that may be never!!! 😀 This is the whole reason Samsung has been spending Billions more than every other smartphone parts and phone maker on both R&D and REAL CAPEX Spending!
