New Samsung patents show us what future smartphones may look like

40 sec read

Samsung has registered three new patents that give us a glimpse at what the future of our mobile devices could look like. One of the patents surrounds gesture technology that would enable users to control their smartphone without touching the screen while another involves a wireless charging station that sanitizes your smartphone with UV rays.

 In a bid to keep their innovations to themselves, companies often patent designs and technologies even though they’re aware actual implementation is a long-shot from where they stand. Apple’s infamous for the same; the company is often accused of patenting technology just to be able to sue other companies later. But of course, Apple begs to differ. It appears as though Samsung is now upping its patents game with three new patents. These include a design patent for a new tablet, a grip sensing technology, and one for a wireless charging station. The design patent for a new tablet gives Samsung the rights to the following design, which seems to offer a button in a rather unorthodox corner position along with an iPad mini-esque cover which doubles up as a kickstand.
