The circle turns into an oval. Samsung patents a smartwatch with a sliding screen


We’ve already seen TVs, smartphones and tablets with sliding screens, and in all of these cases Samsung has noted. But the company seems to be ready to equip even a smart watch with a sliding display. According to the source, the corresponding patent application was filed on June 2 of this year at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and the documentation appeared in the public domain today – December 9.

The meaning of the concept is well illustrated by the schematic images. In its normal state, the watch screen is round, but under certain circumstances (for example, to make it easier to read messages and notifications), it divides into two semicircles, each of which can be extended in length from the center. As a result, the circle turns into an oval, and the screen area increases by 40%.

The transformation of a circle into an oval can be initiated in various ways. For example, by pressing the side key or swiping on the touch screen. In the place of the conditional screen gap (that is, in the center of the circle), Samsung decided to place a camera. Moreover, a whole camera block would fit in this place. For example, with a flash and two modules. It is too early to talk about the commercial fate of such a development, but the concept for the future turned out to be interesting.
