Samsung Electronics has been known to reveal some interesting concepts at trade shows over the years, but this recently filed utility patent with the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) and the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) might actually become a reality. Published on August 27, 2020, the sketches appear to describe a transparent smartphone, but the technology itself could eventually be used in other consumer electronics products, like televisions, monitors, laptop screens, game consoles and even cameras.
The patent appears to be based on OLED display technology for its low power consumption, high brightness and a fast response time. However, this screen boasts a transparent luminous display panel through which light can shine, thus enabling content to be displayed directly on it, while still also letting you see what’s behind the device. This technology can be implemented in either a flat display or a flexible panel. In other words, you’ll actually be able to walk and text somewhat safely.
