Samsung patent smelly scented smartphone
Does your phone stink as bad as you do? Some of you might find yourselves saying, “Yeah we both reek pretty badly!” others might say “No way I keep my phone in my bag, and we’re both clean as a whistle!” Either way despite however clean you believe you might be a recent study claimed that a mobile phone can harbor eighteen times more bacteria than a toilet handle. This could be the answer to why some people might find that their phone smells bad. I digress.
What’s for certain is that everyone likes a sweet smell. Regardless of if their phone smells fine or if it smells like its been fished out of a hot festival portaloo, phone perfume is exactly what Samsung are proposing.
The new patent application presents a cell phone which has the feature of being able to discharge perfume. The diagram shows a cavity in the phone where a material carrying the scent will fit. The scent will recharge as the phone does too.
Perhaps Samsung are onto an untapped market here? Of course it does appear almost like a gimmick, but considering how increasingly attached we are becoming to our mobile phones these days, they are virtually an extension of our bodies; so why shouldn’t they smell good too?
