Samsung has patented a very unusual development – a two-in-one smartphone with a removable module. Information about the device is published on the website of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
We are talking about a monoblock-type apparatus. In its upper part, the South Korean giant proposes to place a special removable unit with a display across the entire width of the case.
In normal mode, the additional module can be used to display useful information, auxiliary controls, or, say, messages from social networks.
By removing this block, the user will be able to give it an arched shape and attach it to the wrist. In this mode, the module will function as a smartwatch or fitness tracker.
Bluetooth technology can be used to communicate with a smartphone. The cellular device will be able to recharge the removable unit battery. The patent illustration also shows two physical control buttons located at the end of the removable module.
