Mirkran, 16 Apr 2018For the people complaining, these are just display design patents. Nobody said Samsung will us... morePatent is the first step to using a design or something.
The same way they have patented the memory-stacked image sensor (which, btw, isn't even theirs).
techperson211, 16 Apr 2018They're working on it. Well, we can always dream. But it would be nice if they kept that crap, and everyone else evolve. Samsung and Apple can just keep the crappy "features" for themselves.
I sense a great disturbance in the smartphone industry. It's as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror !!

They sold OLED panels to Apple before this patent is filed, and the iPhone X that utilizes those panels have a perfectly cut notch on the top.
Filing a patent means they're going to use it for their own products, and that others need permission from them for others to use the same thing.
techperson211, 16 Apr 2018Hahaha. Patent the notch. Patent the slo mo as well. Sammy fans will be happy. By the way things go, pretty soon they'll patent Earth!
i hope this ends up only in the patents and not in real life.
Anonymous, 16 Apr 2018what is actually new in this patent....... it looks like all the phones out there right now. w... moreIf the patent is out there and has public access now, that means it was registered at least 2 years ago. Patents stay unacessible to anyone other than the company that is patenting it for 2 years. Otherwise you could just access your competitors patents to see how their future products will be.
The picture with the notch looks just like the iPhone X because it IS the iphone X screen, which Samsung produces and probably has the patent rights for it (Apple is actually paying Samsung to use that screen design.
For the people complaining, these are just display design patents. Nobody said Samsung will use these in its phones.
People jump into conclusions too easily.
Hahaha. Patent the notch. Patent the slo mo as well. Sammy fans will be happy.
why patent the notch?
The Samsung S9+ or Note9 will be my last Samsung if they opt for the notch on their next flagship phone. Notch is pointless for android phone. It's better to have big bezel than this stupid notch trend.
Samsung, please patent bloatware and edged screen too! Add small batteries extremely slow updates to that patent list!
Not the notch!

A thin bezel, tbh, won't gave me a wrath, as long as it's quite symmetrical. This is also the reason why I like the P20 Pro, as its notch hiding technique and its insistence to stretch at only 18:9 aspect ratio despite the notch is what gains me some respect for them. Would like to see if Samsung would implement their under display front cam sensor to their true full display tho.
People don't get it. This is most probably fpr Samsung Display, their "selling screens to the others" business.
Now say, who copies who? :)
ohh my lord...can we stop this notch idiocy!
this is for people how hate the notch fo no good reason
the NOTCH is used to display the notification better than an LED at the end what would you like
1 LED flash with 8-16 colors or
about (140×140)×2 16 MILLION color touch sensitive OLED flashs?
there is NO problem in an OLED notch it allows you to use 18:9 of the screen will display notification at the same time with out risking the battery life
and even better if you use the bottom UI display like iPhone X
this way you can have "NOTCH" and "CHIN" working together to replace the useless bezels
the problem isn't in the "the notch" the problem is it's reputation how?
people don't like two things in spacial:-
1) brands trying to trick them with lies like "FULL VIEW" or "BEZELESS"
2) being ripped off by copycats
some brands are locking for an excuse to call there phones "BEZELESS"
now we ALL know you can't use thr notch to display video or games like IPHONE X
you are probably saying "NOTCH SUCK >:( because you can't watch videos or play games with it"
will you can't do any thing about it just accepted what you have (or with android P we may have notch supporting apps like IPHONE ;)
this is the REVOLUTION you can't stop just skip the burning parts
first tall screen now notch then what?
cutting of the bottom bezel?
just jump to total bezeless?
do you know way they didn't? because they don't have place for camera,mic,sensor,etc....
if you put everything under the screen it will be to thick (pop up selfe for example) and sound quality will be terrible and other
soon it will all be fixed and full screen will see the light
when people make something good but is has some problems the make something new
have you heard of :-
need is the mother of invention
you probably you don't I transliterated for you
any how who ever thought that touch screens could "see the light" ?
it all started when someone said "some one have invented touch screen it is better than buttons let's use it but let's keep some buttons just in case"
TOUCH screen BEGAN
"oh no the screen is to small to watch videos let's make it bigger"
THE RULE OF THE BIG
"now they have big screens and low resolution"
"buttons are using to much space we don't need big bezels nor buttons"
"now they haven't got space for notifications"
tall screen REVOLUTION
"now with tall screen supporting apps we need more space let's use some of the upper bezel"
right? not really
you can except it or wait for....
FULLSCREEN UP RISING
maybe you get to live the
AGE OF AR LENS
in our war against the "bezels" all I can say is:-
#don't fight the bezel make it fight for you ;) (or kill it and make a true bezels >;$)
