Samsung patents a smartphone with a notch and in-display fingerprint scanner

This new device by Samsung has a dual camera setup on the back, there is no physical fingerprint scanner.

Samsung is experimenting time to time with it's smartphones, sometimes with the design of phone and some times with the interface.

In a Samsung patent application filed last month and spotted recently by Dutch gadget blog Mobielkopen, the South Korean consumer tech giant has shown that it's toying with the idea of building an iPhone X copycat.

Another patent filed shows a Samsung phone with no notch.

On the lower end of the phone the phone are the headphone Jack, USB and grille for the speaker. Meanwhile, the top edge features the SIM tray. The body is made of metal and it has a power control button.

The latest technological advancement has enabled companies to incorporate fingerprint sensor under the display. The front side is nearly all-display, while the back only has the dual cameras.

Minnesota Wild wins to inch closer
The Jets are schedule to face off with the Minnesota Wild in game three of the first round of NHL Playoffs on Sunday at 6:00 p.m. The Wild have now lost five straight road games in Winnipeg, getting outscored 23-12 in the process.

The notch design has been a contentious topic among smartphone users.

Additionally, it also doesn't feature a front-facing selfie shooter and there's no indication of where it might be hiding. Many other smartphone manufacturers have launched or confirmed the launch of phones with notches like Asus, Huawei and OnePlus. They really, really hate the notch. That being said, this patent suggests that Samsung is definitely interested in designing an Android phone with a notch.

It has to be noted everything that gets registered in a patent office may not make it into the final device that hits the market as companies' sometimes tend to make several designs for reference objective before finalizing the actual product.

For those who aren't big fans of the notch, Samsung is also working on something else. Android Authority believes that this device could still be years away from being commercially released.

Samsung is so committed to the Infinity screen design, we thought we might escape seeing yet another iPhone X copycat emerge from the world's leading smartphone maker.
