samsung applied for the patent last year but it was only recently published by the world intellectual property organization (WIPO) last week. it describes three variants, all with a display on the back of the device. the first shows a samsung phone with two displays, which run completely around the model. a metal frame is visible only at the top and bottom.

sensors can measure how the smartphone is held, showing content accordingly when the phone is flipped. although the display completely extends over the rear, only the upper part can be used as a touchscreen. this was chosen because of the hand position of the phone. one example of usage includes allowing users to decline calls when their phone is face down on a surface. another shows an incoming message which the user can see and open. there are also options to access emails, photo gallery and other applications such as weather.
