It’s been discovered recently that Samsung has filed a patent for a new smartphone that features an iPhone X-style notch on its display. The patent application was filed by the South Korean company back in March 30 with the Chinese patent organization SIPO and was only spotted by Mobielkopen on Monday.

  The OnePlus 6 is shaping up to be an Android powerhouse that embraces the notch Remember the wave of criticism that followed the OnePlus 5 launch last summer when the final design of the handset turned out to be a blatant iPhone 7 copy? Get ready for a repeat! Yes, we heard last week that the OnePlus 6 will have a notch like the iPhone X, and now a second report seems to confirm it all. #NeverSettle strikes again. © Provided by BGR Most of the iPhone X clones that are hitting stores this year will not have 3D-sensing front-facing cameras, a recent report said, singling out Huawei and Xiaomi as the only two handset manufacturers that might launch smartphones with 3D cameras in 2018.

Samsung applied for the patent with China's SIPO patent office. Notched displays have been in vogue as of late, with Essential introducing a phone with Even if the iPhone X 's notch has its share of critics, it's proven popular enough to where phone makers want to incorporate that design decision

The front of the unnamed Samsung Galaxy phone presented in the patent features a display that stretches to all sides of the front. Above the display is a rectangular cutout where the front-facing camera, earpiece speaker and sensors are located. The display features rounded corners and is very reminiscent of the iPhone X.

On the back, the Samsung Galaxy phone features a horizontal dual-camera setup with an LED flash. There also appears to be antenna lines present on the back panel of the phone. The bottom of the device features a USB Type-C port, a speaker grille and the 3.5mm headphone jack. Meanwhile, the top edge features the SIM tray. The left side of the phone features the volume keys, while the right side features the power button.

iPhone SE 2 with iPhone X style notch leaks in video

  iPhone SE 2 with iPhone X style notch leaks in video Apple looks set to reveal a new iPhone SE 2 soon which will bring features from the top-end iPhone X to an affordable handset. The video, leaked on Mac Otakara, shows off what is apparently the new iPhone SE 2 handset. It looks a lot like a perfect cross between an iPhone X and an iPhone SE.

After initially mocking the iPhone X 's notch , a new patent from Samsung suggests the company could integrate a notch of its own into a future smartphone. Though it was the Essential Phone , rather than the iPhone X , that first sported a notch , it’s nonetheless nice to see that such fierce rivals appear to

This Samsung patent could solve the iPhone X 's notch problem. Why have a notch when you can put holes directly into the display? Does this type of design appeal to you, or have you gotten used to bezels or the notch on the iPhone X ? As Samsung releases phones with higher and higher

The only thing that appears to be missing from the device is a physical fingerprint scanner. The front side is almost all-display, while the back only has the dual cameras. It’s being speculated that this particular Samsung phone may have an in-display fingerprint scanner, which is something that  a lot of consumers have been wanting on a Samsung device for sometime now.

The notch design has been a contentious topic among smartphone users. It all began with the Essential Phone, which featured a very small notch for its front-facing camera. 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. 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 Samsung filing this patent, it doesn’t necessarily mean that this Galaxy phone will become an actual product. That being said, this patent suggests that Samsung is definitely interested in designing an Android phone with a notch.

For those who aren’t big fans of the notch, Samsung is also working on something else. Samsung has filed a patent for a phone that features a 99 percent screen-to-body ratio. Android Authority believes that this device could still be years away from being commercially released.

Huawei is making a phone even bigger than the iPhone X Plus or Galaxy Note 9 .
Buyers looking for big-screen phones will have quite a few devices to choose from in the second half of the year. In a couple of months, the Galaxy Note 9 will hit stores, with an “Infinity Display” around 6.3-inches big, about as big as the Galaxy Note 8’s screen. A month later, the iPhone X Plus will bring iPhone users a huge 6.5-inch screen, the biggest display ever seen on an iPhone. 

But it’s Huawei that’s supposedly working on a device with an even bigger screen than the iPhone X Plus.Samsung is supposedly manufacturing 6.
