Samsung’s latest design patents probably won’t see the light of day

Samsung has been granted a number of new design patents by the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), reports Patently Mobile—and they include everything from a foldable smartphone to a 360-degree speaker.

It’s worth noting, however, that nothing outlined in these (minimalistic) design patents is set in stone. They merely provide an insight into what the firm could be working on behind the scenes, so don’t get your hopes up.

Design Patent #1 — Foldable Smartphone 1

Design Patent #2 — Foldable Smartphone 2

Design Patent #3 — Radiant 360 R5 Speaker

well the 360 speaker is just an iteration of their existing speaker range so I would say that likelihood is about 100%, the first 2 look like concepts that may translate across to product design but are more likely just put out to deter patent trolls and patent spammers like Apple.
