Microsoft may be working on a new system for displaying information on the front and back of mobile devices.

This is according to a patent filed by Microsoft at the United States Patent and Trademark Office, relating to a dual-sided display system for smartphones and tablets.

The patent features a second, low power screen on the back of a tablet that would contain a limited amount of information.

The rear display could possibly be e-ink, and allow vendors to show the time or weather information on the rear of the device, freeing up space on the primary screen.

The second display is expected to use its own processor in an attempt to reduce load on the device’s primary display.
