First smartphone with two-sided transparent display gets a prototype, demonstrated in Japan
The first prototype of a device with a double-sided and transparent display was demonstrated recently in Japan, and this sci-fi project coming to reality is a joint effort of NTT DoCoMo and Fujitsu. The transparent two-sided OLED touch screen smartphone comes with two touch panels, up front and on the back, so for example you can swipe between home screens by touching the back and not have a finger in the way.
Currently, the prototype shown packs a 2.4-inch display with a resolution of 240x320 pixels which is still too low to end up in a final retail device, but the technology continues to evolve.
Just a couple of days ago, we saw the first extremely affordable feature phone with a transparent touchscreen, but it wasn’t touch sensitive.
You can check out the display in action in the video below, and here are some text excerpts from there:
