Samsung's new smartphone patent shows they are joining the notch hype

Apple iphone x profit Q4 2017

On the bright side, Samsung, which once drew flak for aping Apple mobile design, got hailed for sticking to the original Infinity Display design in the latest Galaxy S9 series. In its design images, the front comes with a full body display and a notch which is rather big compared to the other smartphones with notches.

And if the early production of the displays work out for Samsung, then the staggered release of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X that we saw a year ago could be avoided by Apple.

On the back, the Samsung Galaxy phone features a horizontal dual-camera setup with an LED flash. Samsung has recently filed a patent with Chinese patent organization SIPO that shows off a few different phone designs each with a notch above the phone's screen and an in-display fingerprint scanner. Above the display is a rectangular cutout where the front-facing camera, earpiece speaker and sensors are located. "The iPhone X alone generated 21 per cent of total industry revenue and 35 per cent of total industry profits during the quarter", Research Analyst Karn Chauhan said in a statement. It all began with the Essential Phone, which featured a very small notch for its front-facing camera. Many other smartphone manufacturers have launched or confirmed the launch of phones with notches like Asus, Huawei and OnePlus. Some would argue that notches would be able to deliver more screen real estate for users, but some find it distracting when viewing video content in landscape mode. With regular placement of the power button on the right, volume rockers on the left USB port and headphone jack at the bottom, one new design aspect is the placement of the sim-card tray on the top, which hasn't been till now, but may become a thing in the future. Android Authority believes that this device could still be years away from being commercially released.

In the patent application, the phone looks like Apple's iPhone X in design and in some other features too.
