Samsung Creates an “iPhone X” without Bezels and Notch
Samsung is getting ready to take the wraps off the new Galaxy S9, but judging from the leaks that happened recently, only small changes are going to happen in terms of design. At least when viewed from front.
The South Korean firm, however, was one of the first to bet big on edge-to-edge phones, and naturally, it’s also one of the first trying to push this concept even further. And a recently-discovered patent provides us with a glimpse into Samsung’s vision for bezel-less phones.
Essentially, this patent imagines a smartphone not only that has no bezels, but which also comes without a notch. As Apple demonstrated already, the notch is needed to serve as the home of front-facing parts when an edge-to-edge screen is being used, in the case of the iPhone X for FaceTime camera and the module powering the Face ID facial recognition system.
