Last year Apple received a patent for the way it turns the pages on its devices, the faux page turn patent. And since the South Korean tech giant, Samsung, is often blamed of copying Apple, the company decided to get its own patent for turning pages, and that is what we are seeing here. Samsung has applied for a patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office with the application number 20130104017. The application is from last week, and describes in great detail how it is doing the page turns in its applications. The company has gone to in depth physics for the patent. You can download the patent application here (PDF) and have a look at the different gestures that the company has mentioned.
