Samsung Electronics filed a design patent with the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) for a dual-sided smartphone and it was published on September 10, 2019. The seven patent sketches depict a device that looks somewhat similar to the Samsung Galaxy S10, but with a a second display on the back, enabling you to take selfies with the normally higher-resolution rear camera setup.

There are no curved displays on the front or rear, thus preventing damage if you constantly set it down on a table or other hard surfaces. The rear display covers roughly 60% of the total back surface and oes not extend all the way to the bottom, which means you can still get a good grip on it without the pesky fingerprints.

The patent sketches did not hint at a front-facing camera, but we’re assuming Samsung is using either an under-display sensor or a hole-punch camera. When can you expect to see at least a prototype of this device? The earliest would most likely be at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain during late February.
