Smartphone makers incorporate new technology in their phones, but some take things even further. South Korea recently published a patent application for a Samsung flip cover that has a secondary display with electronic ink incorporated.
Samsung filed a patent application over a year ago for a new flip-cover design that has an incorporated e-ink display, according to GalaxyClub. The application was filed with the Korean Intellectual Property Office and it shows the e-ink display having touch sensitivity which can be turned off for saving battery.
The application carries the name “A hybrid secondary screen smart cover with e-ink” and the new product will allow users to interact with the cover. This appears to be the first Samsung flip cover with a secondary display on board.
