Samsung Patent Shows Galaxy Phone With iPhone X-Style Display Notch

Samsung Patent Shows Galaxy Phone With iPhone X-Style Display Notch

On the back, there are various options of placement of the dual-rear camera setup - vertically or horizontally, in the centre or in the corner, implying Samsung wants to play it safe, just in with all the formalities of a patent.

The front of the unnamed Samsung Galaxy phone presented in the patent features a display that stretches to all sides of the front. There is a small rectangular cutout with the front camera, earpiece and other sensors, above the screen of the phone.

Another patent filed shows a Samsung phone with no notch. The body is made of metal and it has a power control button.

The only thing that appears to be missing from the device is a physical fingerprint scanner. Among its numerous designs, the company has developed a model that closely resembled the iPhone X's notch.

Additionally, it also doesn't feature a front-facing selfie shooter and there's no indication of where it might be hiding. Notches became a lot more popular thanks to the Apple iPhone X. In fact, more Android manufacturers are putting notches on their recent releases due to Apple's 10th anniversary handset. They really, really hate the notch. That being said, this patent suggests that Samsung is definitely interested in designing an Android phone with a notch.

Look at that notch in the image at the top of the screen, Samsung fans.

It has to be noted everything that gets registered in a patent office may not make it into the final device that hits the market as companies' sometimes tend to make several designs for reference goal before finalizing the actual product.

While the aforementioned patent offers nothing new per se when it comes to display, there is another document that has been spotted online, which reveals a second patent filed by Samsung.

Probably, yes. Going by the number of Android devices with Apple iPhone X-like notch launched recently in the market, Samsung seems to have given in to the temptation of offering a similar phone in the coming months or early next year.
