Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is one of the most anticipated smartphones of this year, which will surely feature wonderous innovations and present a way to other OEMs in order to adopt such futuristic technologies in their future smartphones.
It is expected that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will come with several high-profile functionalities such as Under Panel Camera, IP rating, S Pen support, and much more. Now, a piece of new information surfaced online that suggests this device could have feature touch-sensitive side buttons.
According to LetsGoDigital, Samsung submitted a patent for “foldable electronic equipment” with the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) last November, which was published on May 20, 2021. The patent document reveals a Galaxy Z Fold smartphone with touch-sensitive side buttons.
The physical buttons originally located on the side of the phone are removed and a total of 8 sensor controls will be embedded on both sides of the phone. Users can activate some functions of the phone by tapping, sliding, squeezing, and pinching around the 8 sensor controls.
For example, the user can activate the power switch function through a simple click action, activate the volume control function through a sliding action, or make a pinch gesture to recognize multiple key input signals to activate more complex functions, such as opening a new browser window.
In addition, Samsung hopes to protect the hinge by implementing a gesture control system. Because, when the user presses the side buttons, a part of external pressure will be applied to the hinge, which may cause damage. At the same time, foldable devices are becoming thinner, which makes it increasingly difficult to leave enough space for physical buttons.
