Samsung is on the flow, that’s right. On this new year beginning, it launched a lot of devices, but it also patented a lot of new cool things. The new best thing is a patent for a phone that have a aspect ratio display of 21:9. This is a ratio that you find on widescreen TVs, so if it will be accepted, probably Samsung will sell this new device for those that consume a lot of video on their smartphone. It will be a good market for Samsung, but for every day consumers this ratio is too wide and elongated, at least as it is seen on the patent.
DID YOU KNOW: Updato offers seamless and guaranteed phone unlocking for any device, carrier and region! It's quick and easy - try it now.
This is not the first manufacturer that wants to patent such a phone. In 2009, LG launched BL40 New Chocolate, that had a 21:9 ratio display aspect, but it didn’t sell very well. Maybe it was too ahead of the world and the technology?!
As we know a patent isn’t always make it’s way to the real world. Maybe the best way for Samsung is to bring this new feature on a tablet instead of a phone. It will make more fuss. But it would have to be something special to sell such a device. What’s your opinion? Will Samsung produce such a device? What would you like, a phone or a tablet with a 21:9 aspect ratio display?
