    What a nightmare for cases

    • It’s Me

      Doesn’t seem like you’d be able to use a case. Maybe a pouch or small purse that you take it out of to use.

      Why not? The case could have a cutout in the back portion to allow use of the rear-facing screen. Of course, the rest of the case would have to rigid enough to stay on the phone.

      Its would not protect it correctly.

  • Samuel Gomez Recuero

    This does not seems practical

    How are you suppose to hold the phone to make a phone call? Maybe they make it big enough that you’ll need to use headset or speakerphone to make calls?

  • John Lofwire

    more chance to break when its drop nice.
    What case will protect this?

    Samsung appears to be the leader in weird innovation, some useful now and others thrown out there to see if we can find them useful.

    The patent, first spotted by LetsGoDigital, was filed to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on September 2nd 2016.

    What a coincidence, Apple applied for a similar patent in 2011 and was granted their patent in June 2016, just a few months before Samsung filed for this patent.

    Where’s John Lowlife to complain about one company trying to patent something another company already has a patent on?
