Samsung's patent application features dual touchscreen display

Category: Patent Application

Among Samsung's more recent patent applications, here's one that offers a “Mobile terminal having dual touch screen and method of controlling content therein”. This could very well change the ways tablet devices and their respective user interfaces work in the future if the patent were to be implemented across a wide scale, since it will be the first dual touchscreen tablet in the world. This is made possible thanks to a second touch sensor layer at the back of the tablet, opening up the room for additional touch control gestures and operation patterns. Do you think this idea will catch on, or will most people prefer a traditional multi-touchscreen display instead? Bear in mind that patents don't necessarily end up as a device, so stay tuned if new developments occur.
