It is a well-known fact that smartphone makers are committed to making phones with bezels as minimum as possible. Samsung is one of the leaders in the aspect as it keeps exploring ways to achieve the same. We have already seen it releasing "Edge" and "Infinity" displays and now, a new Samsung patent has been spotted which shows some really interesting plans from the company.
This new patent was first spotted by LetsGoDigital which shows a smartphone concept with displays on all the four sides. The smartphone can be seen with no bezels at all. It is only the display panel on the front side but things get more interesting when you look at sides. It is shown with displays on all four sides as well which seem to be dedicated for specific functions. There are no metal frames for side-bezels as well.
Additionally, the patent shows a hexagonally shaped device which is definitely a strange choice. The exact reason or purpose for choosing such a design is unknown but it also seems to be a phone with just displays on the front and sides. You can refer to the drawings shown below to get an idea of what exactly Samsung is cooking.
There is no doubt that Samsung is one of the pioneers when it comes to display technologies. It recently showcased the foldable display tech but as far as this patent is concerned, we will only say that don't get your hopes high. It is quite normal for companies to file a patent as soon as they come up with some interesting concept and we know that only a few select patents get turned into a real-world consumer product.
