I don't think samy will go for a notch after the advertisement they made to mock Apple. + Samy stick to the things others are being dropping e.g. headphone jack and sd card

Despite your protests (and Samsung's) she is driven kicking and screaming into the future...
As always, lately, late to the party.
There is a reason that fewer and fewer buy Samsung flagships. Nobody likes extremely conservative companies that don't change up.
First to market edged display (back in 2014) ... stuck there pretty much. Still top and bottom bezel, weak specs...
*Finally* they seem to get on with the times...
It's going to be a sad day if Samsung really launches a phone with a notched design. Their design language perfection right now, so there's hardly a reason for the notch to exist.
bye bye headphone jack
what is actually new in this patent....... it looks like all the phones out there right now. what makes it different worth a patent?
The full screen patent is a welcome, but not the notch. SAMSUNG followed by Sony, Google, HTC are the only few left without notch on their high-end flagships, excluded LG because they might unveil the LG G7 ThinQ with a notch. Don't see a key benefit of a notch till now to be honest, it looks good on some smartphones like the Essential PH-1, but for entertainment and game usage, it is a nuisance, gladly it is 18:9, and not 16:9 with a notch, that will be worse
Get out of the way with the stupid notch.
I actually like this design minus the notch and the back with the cameras in the centre
Smungsung is smart enough so far not ro follow this ugliest, pointless design!
Personal preference of course but i don't mind little bezel on top and I definitely don't need selfish camera...
the notch is already a stupid design,if samsung copys it, their ad which riducule apple for the notch will be more stupuid!
As long as they keep that plague of a notch as far away from the note series as possible, i really couldn't care less.
whether samsung has got the patent or is still filing.
does the patent apply worldwide or in certain countries ?
Alien , 16 Apr 2018What about the light sensor? Or the led? I hate phones without the led notification!Artificial Notification Light is no problem with OLED or AMOLED screen.
Can imagine not-a-notch full screened version to be in next S10/SX only in bigger + variant. But its great to set trend to move on away from a notch at least for pricy flagships.
Proximity, earpiece, and front camera...
No iris scanner ? So it would not be for the S or Note series...
If anything, my bet is on a entry range phone for China only
Please Samsung, don't come up with a notch😞
Anonymous, 16 Apr 2018I thought LG G3 qas the first to bring " wireless" charging .. It was Lumia 920 with first wireless charging
Samsung loves Apple..
Tons of things we found on Galaxy were previously on iphones.
