Leg lock, cute lock screens for phones – TechCrunch

TechCrunch is reporting on a patent filed by Samsung in 2014, which describes a “hand held accessory with a curved screen, and a user’s finger and thumb for gripping the curved screen.”

The patent describes a method of unlocking the device using the user’s hand and thumb, with the screen being held open by the user being able to rotate the curved display.

It also describes an accessory for an iPhone that includes a “smart display” and a “screen grip,” which can be used to control the curved screens functionality.

The patent also describes a mechanism for displaying the screen’s orientation on the phone screen, allowing users to switch between the two simultaneously.
