We have some news from the US Patent and Trademark Office: Samsung was recently granted a patent for a unique-looking device. It’s a mobile phone, but is much longer than what we’re used to seeing.
The device appears to have a 21:9 aspect ratio display, a ratio commonly seen on some widescreen televisions. We won’t really be able to tell whether this is a good idea or not until the details of the project are released in full, but it certainly seems interesting.
We don’t know when (or whether) we’ll see this phone, but stay tuned for more.
