Samsung Planning To Trademark The Galaxy S5’s Fingerprint Scanning Tech And A Mysterious ‘Dark Screen’

It has been discovered by TMWatch blog that Samsung Australia is in the process of staking its claim on the name ‘Finger Scanner’ for the brand new Galaxy S5′s biometric sensor, as well as a mysterious ‘Dark Screen’ listing that might direct towards a future display technology for the Korean innovator.

It is obvious to trademark ‘Finger Scanner’ by Samsung as it covers Samsung’s name for the fingerprint scanning tech in the new home button on the Samsung Galaxy S5, same as Apple’s international Touch ID trademark application. This effort by Samsung to trademark the ‘Finger Scanner’ name can likely be considered as a technology that will have a long shelf life and will likely appear in subsequent Galaxy S and Galaxy Note phones and tablets.

The ‘Dark Screen’ name which Samsung is seeking to trademark is more mysterious. There is no reference in Google as to an existing marketing term or technology that can be found, and the best guess is Samsung’s continuing interest and stake in its Super AMOLED displays, which can turn off individual pixels when not in use for the darkest possible screen. It is most likely believed to be nothing more than an inventive piece of marketing terminology, or it could point to a new technology in development to further increase the capability of the company’s OLED displays.
