Samsung patents bezel-less design with a cutout for the Rear Camera

The full screen design craze has gotten to the point where displays have covered all the blank bezels and are now pushing up against functional elements like the front camera. That’s the case for the Essential phone, the upcoming iPhone 8 and – going by this patent – the future Galaxy S and Note devices.

The patent drawings show the display coming right up to the edge of the phone with a small cutout to leave room for the front camera, earpiece and assorted sensors. The cutout doesn’t seems as extreme as Essential’s or even the iPhone’s.

This patent was filed in South Korea on May 2016 – well before the designs of the other two became public. Does that mean that the Galaxy S9 will sport the “display cutout” look? It’s possible, but we wouldn’t bet the house on it – Samsung also patented an S Pen with a breathalyzer – sometimes patents are filed just in case.
Let’s know your take on this…..

    Still talking on Android 8.0 update

    HMD confirms Android 8.0 update for all Nokia Android smartphones

    The famous days of Nokia seem to be far behind us. We can’t easily forget the days when Nokia ruled the Nigeria phone industry with an iron hand. The days of Nokia Xpress Music soundly come to mind. The demise of Nokia from the centre smartphone stage brings tears to the eyes.
    One reason for such decline is the strategic reluctance to jump on the Android smartphone board like Samsung did. A move that paid off big for Samsung and are rightly commandeering the industry. Well Nokia has gotten the message after learning its hard lessons, and now is finally ready to jump on the winning Android train.
    Nokia Android is back. And Nokia is reaching to claim its leadership back with the the Nokia 3, 5, 6, and 8. Nokia is keeping up promptly with updates this time as it is very dangerous to stay behind the pack. This is why Nokia is quickly bringing on Android Oreo updates to the aforementioned phones. According to HMD, the Nokia 3, 5, 6, and Nokia 8A will get Android Oreo before the end of the year maximum.
