The smartphone design we all want is finally real, but it’s not an iPhone or Galaxy device

The smartphone design we all want is finally real, but it’s not an iPhone or Galaxy device We’ve had all-screen smartphones for a few years now, but all designs so far come with a compromise. 

Samsung ’s smartphone innovations hit more affordable phones first before being refined for flagships. When Samsung saw that Apple was planning to release a new “entry-level” So instead of just releasing one new Galaxy Note phone in 2019 like Samsung has done in previous years, the

One of the recurring knocks you keep hearing against Apple is that the iPhone maker keeps doing variations on the same things it’s done before, at least when it comes to hardware.

The smartphones, for example, are all variants of the same idea — rectangular slabs of glass, never any adventurous design leaps … yadda, yadda. Say what you will about Samsung, meanwhile, but it’s much harder to criticize the South Korea-based handset manufacturer over boring sameness.

Case in point: A newly discovered patent for a smartphone design like nothing you’ve seen before, which probably won’t even be a commercial product and something you can actually buy anytime soon but which nevertheless speaks to a continued spirit of willingness to try bizarre, even outlandish things inside the company.

This is the craziest smartwatch design you’ve ever seen, and it’s not from Apple or Samsung

This is the craziest smartwatch design you’ve ever seen, and it’s not from Apple or Samsung The watch display expands to become a smartphone on your wrist -- and expands again, if needed, to the size of a tablet strapped to your wrist -- was that it looks like something out of a sci-fi movie. Also, that this device must surely be at least as fragile as Samsung’s once-easily breakable Galaxy Fold. At any rate, IBM’s newly issued patent for this multi-function smartwatch is nothing if not ambitious.

Samsung ’s first foldable smartphone is by far the most talked about device with this new form factor, but Samsung isn’t Samsung showed off the foldable phone prototype in early November, although the phone ’s design was Samsung ’s phone folds in half like a wallet with the screen on the inside.

This time around, Samsung has given us a concept design for a handset that includes three screens — the main screen and then two others that sort of unfold like a fan.

The 10 sketches included in the patent documentation for which Samsung Display made a formal application in August 2018 at the Korean Intellectual Property Office (h/t LetsGoDigital) show a rounded bottom and three equal display parts, all stored beneath each other.

As you can see in the color rendering above, as well as the sketch below, you swing two of the displays outward:

This, of course, follows other Samsung creations and designs that are similarly — adventurous, shall we say. We’re talking about everything from the company’s foldable smartphone to handsets with bendable and even roll-up displays. Plus things like Samsung smartwatch concept designs with screens that expand, and much more.

Is it possible that the pop-up camera design is a solution to a problem that doesn’t really exist? Of course, but that ’s beside the point. In a smartphone market where devices are seemingly Photos: Amid scorching heatwave, some European tourist destinations like you ' ve never seen them

Several other nifty new Android phones are set to hit store shelves in the coming months, including not one but two new Galaxy Note 10 handsets that should We’ ve already seen several leaks describing the trio’s new designs and features, so we have a pretty good idea of what to expect come September.

Each time, then as now, the question is begged — is there any degree of practicality here? With something like this new concept, what in the world would the user experience look like, given that there are three separate, distinct screens? As we’ve said before, probably one of the few things that can objectively be deduced from a design like this is that while this specific idea won’t show up in the wild anytime soon, there very much is an interest among many handset manufacturers to break the mold. We may not be getting a device like this anytime soon, but manufacturers like Samsung are nevertheless trying, bit by bit, to steer us incrementally away from an expectation that phones still look like the same rectangular slabs both now and in the future.

Samsung's Galaxy Fold smartphone will go on sale Sept. 6 in South Korea.
Samsung was due to release the Galaxy Fold in mid-April but reviewers encountered issues with early testing units and the company delayed its launch to fix the glitches.
