Samsung rollable smartwatch
Samsung files a new patent for a rollable smartwatch and it even houses a camera at the center. The patent was filed by Samsung Electronics with the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) (Via: letsgodigital)
If you look at the above patent design you can see how the new rollable smartwatch may look. In the above image, you can see the rollable display along with a camera at the center of the display.
At initial, it is just like another circular smartwatch, but after pressing the crown the display gets expanded along with the dial. The display rolls out from both top and bottom sides and forms a pill-shaped display. In rolled-out mode, the display is 40% larger than usual.
It is also possible to expand the display by swiping on the screen along with crown functionality. The expanded screen will allow users to watch content on a larger screen not only that you can expand only one as per your needs. This allows users to make decisions as per their needs, they can do multi-tasking. On one side they can open an app and on the other side play media.
The middle frame in between the display houses a camera. We may see other sensors too along with the camera like a flash, Proximity, and the camera can be used to capture photos and videos.
We also saw the leaked images of a meta smartwatch with a camera housing. Now it’s from Samsung with a rollable display. We might see this type of smartwatch from Samsung in a year or two.
