If you thought ‘one’ was bellyful and quite enough for the day, you may then have to shift your thoughts around. Pretty unexpectedly (though pleasantly), Microsoft has just shed some light on its upcoming two-sided smartphone display system which should basically have a bull’s-eye on your phones and tablets. How does that sound?
Well, the patent comes equipped with an efficient second low-power display (most probably E Ink) on the device’s rear side. To go by the buzz, the said panel would contain certain types of information (although, we don’t know what kind of information will be provided). Nevertheless, the secondary display endeavors to put forth a variety of other information that might otherwise not be illustrated.
While users are still benefiting from a single, high resolution screen of their portable devices, the new two-sided smartphone technology may just enhance the overall experience. What’s more, the advancement would play on its own low-powered processor and may significantly trim down the power consumption from a smartphone’s or tablet’s primary display.
However, some may find Microsoft’s new patent somewhat similar in intent to smart-device-skins invention from Samsung – which has indeed been making quite a lot of buzz in the market. For those so not aware, the technology will interestingly endow users with the unique ability to transform the appeal of their mobile phone using chameleon-like technology. In fact, it could even be employed to show animations or images on the rear facet of a device.
Anyway coming back to Microsoft’s invention, the evolving smartphone interface anticipates to transforming many things for users who seek innovation coupled with convenience of usage. Since Microsoft’s next-generation of engineers are looking forward to infusing a new technological phase, let’s just wait for some official details to be divulged. Likewise, the pricing and availability details need to be revealed too.
