Samsung’s Next Screen Adventure, a Transparent Display?

Samsung’s latest patent application, a transparent display that can be controlled from the front and the back.

A patent application from Samsung are showing their latest idea to revolutionize the display on the phone. It shows a transparent display where the user can execute commands by using both the front and back of the display.

They also come up with ideas for how this could be used, among other things, control a video without having to block the view, move the objects located in the back if the screen had multiple layers and improve security with unlocking your phone using a password that must be entered from both sides.

Samsung has previously shown transparent displays at the IFA electronics fair in Berlin back in 2012 (see video below), so they have toyed with the idea before and it can therefore easily be within the next few years we will have a prototype to see.
