Samsung recently filed a new patent application at the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for 3D displays which the users can connect to their smartphones and tablets, media reported.
These displays might exist as TV sets or as monitors and will show content which will vary from photographs and videos to 3D games. The illustrations which include the patent also said that the users will have the option of forwarding the information presented on their smartphones to the 3D screens.
Android Headlines reported– “For example, if a user is on a call, the screen might show the person with whom they are currently speaking to at the moment and the display could also be used to control the playback of music files which the user would have forwarded from their handsets. The 3D display also features a 3D user interface (UI) which will allow users to interact with their device either through touch or by stylus pens. These displays might also come with sensors which will have the ability to detect user-contact with virtual objects that will be presented by the device which uses infrared radiation or ultrasound waves to track how a person interacts with the content.“
It is important to understand that not all patents give out a result for a commercialized product, but it just hints towards the fact that the South Korean giant might market their 3D displays in the future.
No statement from the company has been given as of now with regards to the newly-filed patent.
The Seoul-based company also launched a 3D TV set in 2010 but unfortunately, it didn’t reach commercial success because of the inconveniences that were associated while using the products.
In November 2018, Samsung filed some patents which were related to the holographic technology that is being used by existing display materials which are used to show high-resolution images which the company could include in their much-anticipated foldable handsets.
