Samsung has just introduced the Galaxy S20, which may be on sale at the beginning of March. They are the most advanced phones in the history of Samsung. They will continue to be until they encounter the technological wall of each end of summer, the Galaxy Note family. The future Galaxy Note 20 includes technologies for lack of time or cost, have not been possible to include in the Galaxy S20 and mark many of the trends of 2021. Today we discover some of them thanks to a new patent publication.
It is not the first time that the patents filed by the brands in the different registry offices reveal technical information about the mobiles that are about to launch. This time it was Samsung, the company that has gone to the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), to show what could be the design of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20.
Curved screen and physical buttons
The illustrations that accompany the patent reveal a curved screen, much like the Huawei Mate 30. However, Samsung still has in mind to offer all the physical buttons, volume and power, that protrude through the curved glass of the screen in the side edges. However, remember that Huawei’s flagship opted for virtual controls for the Mate 30 Pro.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 patent
But perhaps the most interesting thing is that for the first time we see materialized, at least in the form of an official Samsung patent, some of the most surprising technical characteristics of recent years and that in its day it sounded in the form of rumor for the then known as Future Galaxy S11. These are a series of advanced sensors, including an electromyogram sensor (EMG). In addition to an electroencephalogram sensor (EEG) and an electrocardiogram sensor (ECG).
We still cannot imagine the possible applications on our mobile or if Samsung has in mind to integrate these sensors only in one model of the Galaxy Note 20 series. What we do know is that EMG tests are used to find neuro-muscular diseases. While EEG sensors monitor the electrical activity of the brain. In addition, the ECG sensor is used to accurately measure and prevent abnormal heart rhythms.
To these sensors, a holographic projector is added that Samsung also details in this patent. Broadly speaking, this function allows three-dimensional images to be projected on a real environment. This is something that until now has been seen only in science fiction movies. It is still too early to assume anything about the upcoming Galaxy Note series. But there is no doubt that Samsung will try again to surprise with its new technologies.
