Samsung is on a streak in 2020 smartphone-wise. The company unveiled the Galaxy S20 earlier in the year, then last month it announced the Note 20 Series, the Galaxy Z Fold Flip 5G, and Z Fold 2.

It seems now Samsung has time to invest in developing rather revolutionary devices. A patent filed by the company in January 2020, has surfaced last month and describes how the South Korean giant is planning to build a transparent smartphone.

Samsung wants to use each pixel on the phone’s display to allow light to pass through it, making the screen transparent. LetsGoDigital collaborated with artist Snoreyn to produce a 3D render of the device based on the technology detailed in the papers Samsung filed.

Samsung is not the first to try out this technology in smartphones. LG launched the GD900 in 2009 with a transparent keypad and Sony Ericsson released the Xperia Pureness which had a transparent display but wasn’t very good.

A transparent phone may look cool because you can see your hand through it, but that’s about it. There is no real benefit from such a technology, so the chances of seeing this on the mainstream market are pretty slim..
