Samsung patents a smartphone with a notch and in-display fingerprint scanner

Apple iPhones Gobble Up 86% Of All Global Smartphone Profits During Q4 2017

Apple iPhone X Scored 35% Of Q4 2017 Profits, Says Report

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. The story would appear to back up one published by South Korea's ETNews just last week, which said that Samsung would have to reactivate production for the task after temporary downtime related to iPhone X display inventory.

The 6.5-inch "iPhone X Plus" was originally expected to have a panel manufactured by LG, but it was suggested when the rumors began that the South Korean firm might not be able to meet Apple's production standards on time. 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. There is a small rectangular cutout with the front camera, earpiece and other sensors, above the screen of the phone. These will include a 5.8-inch iPhone X, a 6.5-inch iPhone X and a 6.1-inch iPhone.

Another patent filed shows a Samsung phone with no notch. The front side is nearly all-display, while the back only has the dual cameras.

Pogba was withdrawn before the hour mark as United were beaten by the Premier League's bottom side West Brom on Sunday afternoon. However, the 21-year-old has failed to nail down a spot in the first team and he is ready to move on.

The notch design has been a contentious topic among smartphone users. "Additionally, the longer shelf life of all iPhones ensured that Apple still has eight out of top 10 smartphones, including its three-year-old models, generating the most profits compared to current competing smartphones from other OEMs", Chauhan informed.

With Samsung filing this patent, it doesn't necessarily mean that this Galaxy phone will become an actual product.

Hardcore Android fans hate the notch. Android Authority believes that this device could still be years away from being commercially released. Sadly, it looks like there's almost no escape from the notch in 2018, because nearly every Android phone maker out there is stealing Apple's notch and using the design on their own phones.
