Samsung files the patent for sensor pads

Samsung patents sensor pads for their "edgy" devices

Samsung is nowadays working on everything edgy and more stylish. To be more specific, there is an “EDGE” operation going inside the company, for the development of new and more modern products and ideas. A few days ago, Samsung filed a patent for the App’s edge initiative. Now according to some news, another brand of the Samsung’s R&D department is working on the new side of edge operation. This time the new product rumored to evolve as the result of this operation is expected to be a conventional, flat screen.

Samsung has petitioned for a license for straightforward "sensor pads". Those will be put close by the edges of a cell phone and will be accessible as controls in different applications. The main thinking is, apparently, not to meddle with the showed display of the screen.

This patent just recently affirmed by the USPTO, where the closely imperceptible virtual buttons happen to be dynamic areas that are found near to the edge of a touchscreen. This will then have the capacity to, for case, give the camera application a dispatch. Although these sensor pads are not restricted to any specific function and can also be used for different other functions, that is why they are considered to be even more useful.

However, all of the reasoning behind this sensor pad theory is exciting and fun, but in actual it is very difficult to implement. Also, it would take a lot of time to release, even if it passes through these selection stages.
