Genuinely, Samsung, exactly what the heck is with the scented cell phone patents? This isn’t the very first, or also the 2nd time you have actually thought to place pockets of perfume in a phone. This latest patent is somewhat different from earlier concepts, we suppose. We see this one has a scent refilling station created into the charging dock. So, when you set the phone down to charge the battery, it even “costs” the fragrant sponge in the body. It’s also remarkable that this isn’t really a passive perfumed strip or a spraying system. Instead the “absorbant material” is warmed, either by the battery directly or by circuitry triggered as part of an active. So, every time your hippy friend telephone calls, your phone can blast Phish and fill the air with the fragrance of patchouli (or, something else…).
