Stylish Samsung Galaxy transparent smartphone renders by Snoreyn would make even Tony Stark consider an upgrade
The idea of transparent smartphones is not a particularly new one: They have frequently cropped up in sci-fi movies and Tony Stark has been seen with one on various occasions in the Iron Man/Captain America films. However, there is no mass-market transparent smartphone yet, but it could be possible that Samsung is planning on remedying that situation at some point in the future with a special Galaxy model. LetsGoDigital has reported about some patent documents that point in this direction for the South Korean manufacturer, and with the help of designer Snoreyn, there are some gorgeous renders of what such a device could end up looking like.
There is a belief that the transparent display market is going to be worth a considerable sum within the next few years, and Samsung certainly isn’t the only OEM thoroughly exploring where transparent panels can be usefully implemented. LG has its transparent OLED signage, Vivo has worked on a concept transparent smartphone, and Xiaomi has released its transparent TV and is also apparently busy putting the same technology into another display (or monitor). Samsung will want to keep up with the noisy neighbors in this regard.
LetsGoDigital does bring up the tricky subject of where the key components would be hidden in a transparent Samsung Galaxy smartphone. Of course, chunky bezels could be the solution, but that defeats the object of the smartphone bezel annihilation process that has been taking place over recent years. Smaller and smaller parts are obviously key for this particular device, but it might still be a couple of years before anything practical comes along…and then transparent smartphones could also face the same rocky start that some foldable smartphones had to experience.
