After a lot of irony, the Samsung still looks at home on the Apple also filed the patent of a smartphone with the... the notch!
Like it or not, many Android smartphone makers have followed the example of Apple with iPhone X, by using a notch on the upper part of the display to accommodate the sensors and camera. “It was only a matter of time“, they will think of some, but it seems even Samsung is thinking of opting for the same solution for its next smartphone.
Samsung has filed a patent application for a smartphone, and includes the much-criticized “notch”. The patent application was “discovered” by Mobielkopen, after the latter was delivered to the patent office of SIPO in China from the giant south-Korean date is 30 March 2018.
The design reveals a device “without frame”, with a form of photographic double-lens, a USB port,-C, and buttons for volume and power on/off in the usual place. A smartphone in step with the times, without a physical key for the fingerprint sensor (could be implemented in the display). But the design aspect that stands out most is the “notch” on the top of the display. This news certainly surprising, especially after the irony of Samsung's own on the look of the iPhone X (how can we forget this spot...).
Patent applications, however, do not represent a certainty. Tech companies, Apple included, have recorded many patents, but not always, the technologies described will become a reality. The same goes for the smartphone of Samsung is the protagonist of the new patent.
