  • New patent reveals Samsung too wants Apple iPhone X's notch

The device has a facial recognition system, similar to installed into the iPhone X. the Lateral part of the phone display Samsung nearly none.

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 South Korean tech giant Samsung that famously made the displays for Apple's iPhone X past year is going to start making displays for a new iPhone X and iPhone X Plus as reported by Taiwan's Economic Daily News. 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. It also includes a USB Type-C port, volume rockers, a power button, as well as a headphone jack.

The notch design has been a contentious topic among smartphone users. The fingerprint scanner appears to be missing from the device, indicating a possible under-display fingerprint sensor, a feature that the company has reportedly been working on.

Additionally, it also doesn't feature a front-facing selfie shooter and there's no indication of where it might be hiding.

Hardcore Android fans hate the notch.

With Samsung filing this patent, it doesn't necessarily mean that this Galaxy phone will become an actual product. And it seems like, Apple's biggest competition Samsung may join Team Notch soon.

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.

This report could be considered good as we can expect that the new iPhone X, iPhone X Plus and a mid-ranged model with an LCD screen will probably be available at the same time.
