Samsung’s newest patent suggests that an upcoming smartphone, possibly the Samsung Galaxy A82, will enjoy a new sliding action. As always with these patents, take with a pinch of salt as they may come to nothing – but this one kind of makes some sense. Why? Because the sliding action keeps the cameras on the phone hidden until you need them. 

The patent shows a double slide action where moving the screen down will reveal a selfie camera while sliding it up will allow the phone’s main cameras to leap into action. Hiding the front-facing camera makes a lot of sense, it means there’s no need for a notch, punch-out or under-screen camera leaving the screen to do what it does best- displaying stuff.
