Latest Invention: Smartphone with Double-Sided See-Through Touchscreen


One of the latest inventions presented recently by NTT DoCoMo is a prototype smartphone that works by touching the front and back of its transparent screen.

It is worth mentioning that the Japanese company has worked on the prototype together with Fujitsu.

By touching the back of the display the user can scroll the screen. Thus they will not obscure the display. Besides, the user can slide down notification bar with ease using the index finger.

With the help of the new screen one can hold down an icon on the front side of the display, and slide on the back to move an icon. They can also use the message bar, or make a new application.

The smartphone boasts a QVGA (320 x 240) display that measures 2.4 inches. But the company could increase the size of the screen before launching the device onto the market. One of the drawbacks of the handset is that it has low brightness compared to other smartphones. This means that you will have problems reading the display in bright places. According to the company's representatives, DoCoMo plans to solve the issue.
