Samsung patent just teased dual-screen Galaxy future

While Samsung is no stranger to smartphones with two screens, to date the innovation has been reserved for handsets like the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4. A new patent unearthed by SamMobile (opens in new tab) suggests that might not always be the case, and Samsung is toying with the idea of ​​adding rear screens to its regular high-end handsets.

The patent, entitled “Electronic apparatus comprising transparent display (opens in new tab)”, Was filed back in January, but published this week. Like the Nubia X from Chinese company ZTE, the patent shows a phone with a second screen on the rear of the device. Unlike the Nubia, this screen is both smaller and transparent, meaning it hides in plain sight when not in use.
