You remember flip phones. You've seen foldable phones. You might have heard of rollable phones. But how about transparent rollable phones? Yep, that's what Samsung is touting in its latest patent filing, and it sounds pretty wild.
The concept of the 'rollable' has been around for a couple of years, with a few impressive tech demos showing 'unfurling' displays that expand in size, a little like unrolling a poster. But Samsung wants to make the idea even more magical. (Feeling old school? Check out the best flip phones available now.)
A new Samsung patent application reveals a device featuring a rollable display, complete with a transparent section. This means objects behind the phone would be visible, but information could still be displayed on the screen.
