Samsung has an idea to get to create the true smartphone “without frames” , and the solution goes through magnetic components. At least that is how it is included in the latest patent filed by the South Korean company with the World Intellectual Property Office, to which they have had access from. In the report, you can see how Samsung would have decided to resort to magnets to develop a manufacturing format that allows them to create a smartphone devoid of screen frames almost completely.
Only a few days ago, Huawei was the brand that decided to present a patent report with the technology that would allow them to create their “all-screen” smartphone . However, the approach chosen byis quite different from the giant China, given that the Seoul-based brand would bet on a series of magnetic pieces which, once attached to the four sides of the phone, would replace the phone’s chassis.
Samsung’s plan to take the idea of the infinite screen to the extreme
As you can see in the diagram, extracted directly from the, the device in question would be formed by four strips, magnetized and connected to the four sides of the phone . According to Samsung in the report, these strips may be made of different materials, from aluminum to wood or plastic, which would be a useful solution to improve the personalization of devices, whether smartphones, tablets and even televisions.
Logically, the magnets should be powerful enough so as not to easily detach from the body of the phone. This would be achieved through a permanent magnet or an electromagnet. And in case these components suffer some kind of damage, they could easily be replaced by new ones.
While at first it might seem like an idea too risky to be carried out on a smartphone, we should not forget that Samsung has already used a similar technology in one of its newest TVs, whose modular frames can be extracted from the body without affecting the core of the television. Probably we will not see a smartphone that, through this system, achieves to reduce to the maximum the frames that surround its screen, but it never hurts to see how manufacturers are paving the way for a totally borderless future through new ideas.
