Looks more like flattened toilet paper tube. I don't see it ever being produced.
Just under one year after a nearly identical application was published by the US Patent and Trademark Office, Apple has been granted a patent for a "consumer electronic product" – read: smartphone – with a curving display that wraps completely around the device. Illustration from Apple patent 'Electronic device with wrap …
So what's the inventive step here, using 2 screens has been done before, putting a flexible screen on a curved surface is the whole point of them.
In fact I would have expected a system using flexible screens to use only one and wrap it all around the object, displaying only on the parts that were needed at the time. Hardly rocket science and pretty obvious even to someone not in the industry.
I have got eyes at the back of my head, but can still see one screen at a time...if have to flip the phone over anyway then...what's the point? It may save money having a front and a rear camera as the same camera...but then Apple != economy. Oh hang on...the first screen is transparent so you can see the second screen THROUGH the first screen? Genius!
