It was reported from The Verge, based on the LetsGoDigital report and Peta Pixel, that Samsung Electronics had filed a patent on the development of smartwatch technology on June 2, 2021 to the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO).
At 96 pages thick, the patent report describes a Galaxy Watch with a rollable screen, complete with a camera in the middle.
In the initial appearance, the Samsung smartwatch will only look like an ordinary smartwatch on the market today, with a round shape. However, with the ability to roll, the smartwatch will be able to change size, becoming bigger with an oval-shaped screen.
With a larger size, it makes even more content that can be displayed. But interestingly, users will reportedly be able to choose to only use the top or bottom screen, or both at the same time.
In addition, the existence of a larger screen also aims to allow users to watch videos directly from the smartwatch they are using.
This was revealed from an image in the patent report, which shows an image similar to the Marvel’s Thor movie on the smartwatch.
Meanwhile it completes its mutable shape. In the middle which separates the enlarged smartwatch screen, a camera will appear complete with the option of the presence of sensors and flash.
The camera can certainly be used like a camera on a smart phone, to take pictures and videos. Although it has not been specifically explained about how high the quality of the camera’s capabilities are.
In the patent document that has been released, Samsung has been very detailed in describing the smartwatch technology. Not only in terms of design, but also various operating system options are also discussed.
Unfortunately, until it was finally revealed, there was no definite news as to how far Samsung’s plans had progressed. Including when they will market the Samsung Galaxy Watch smartwatch with a camera and the screen can change widely.
