samsung galaxy s10 could have ‘self-healing’ screen that fixes scratches by itself – and never smudges with fingerprints
Samsung has designed a revolutionary display. The so-called \"self-
The \"fix\" screen will fix the scratches on its own to make your device look as good as the new one.
The technology was disclosed in a Samsung patent granted by the World Intellectual Property Organization.
In this patent, Samsung describes how customers often suffer from tiny screen scratches and fingerprint stains.
The solution is to create a protective layer on the smartphone screen that can be self-fixed and repel those pesky finger oils.
Usually, the screen of the smartphone is tempered glass.
Samsung\'s own phone is equipped with Hardy gorilla glass made by Corning.
Its design is very hard but it\'s not a catchall solution.
Even Samsung admits the glass is \"easily broken or scratched \".
\"A protective material with better performance is needed and can be applied to electronic devices,\" Samsung explained in its patent application . \".
Samsung describes its conceptual solution-a film that lives on a smartphone screen and can even be applied to foldable phones.
\"This movie may be self-
\"Heal after being scratched with excellent flexibility, so it can be applied to flexible devices, etc,\" Samsung wrote . \".
This is important because Samsung plans to release its own foldable smartphone in early 2019.
The patent explains that the film will be composed of \"polycyane, multi-angle body times semi-polyoxane and fluorine (meth)acryl\".
But sadly, it doesn\'t elaborate on how these compounds will heal the screen. That is to say, self
It\'s not entirely new to fix the surface, we \'ve even seen it on smartphones.
The lg g Flex and G Flex 2 smartphones were released on 2013 and 2015 with self-healing rears.
LG was silent on the specifics behind the technology, but said it was due to the hydrogen atom built into the back of the phone.
Back in 2015, the company told the company that hydrogen atoms tend to arrange themselves equally.
Therefore, when scratches are generated, these atoms push back to their original position to each other, effectively healing the slight scratches.
Sadly, the technology has not played a role in mass cuts.
And probably Samsung itself.
The repair screen will not be able to repair major scratches.
As for the rejection of fingerprint stains, Samsung hopes to fit its protective film with the oleophobic layer.
This is a special type of oil rejection material-just like a water repellent material.
This means that finger oil will not be able to stick to smartphone glasses, which makes the screen look cleaner.
When can we see this technology on our phones?
For now, this is just a patent, which means there is no guarantee that it will be available on Samsung phones.
But Samsung mentioned the foldable phone in its patent, which means we\'ll see it landing on next year\'s folding Galaxy X smartphone.
Or, we can see the technology on next year\'s Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphone, which is expected to happen in early 2019.
