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.
The South Korean tech giant has submitted a patent application for a design of a smartphone that features the infamous notch on the display. Above the display is a rectangular cutout where the front-facing camera, earpiece speaker and sensors are located.
Even the vertically aligned dual-camera setup on the top left corner is strikingly similar. It's being speculated that this particular Samsung phone may have an in-display fingerprint scanner, which is something that a lot of consumers have been wanting on a Samsung device for sometime now.

Timne running out for registering to vote on 3 May
People can appoint someone else to vote on their behalf by applying to vote by proxy up until 5pm on Wednesday 25 April . The status will change to "active" once the resident votes in an election.
Additionally, it also doesn't feature a front-facing selfie shooter and there's no indication of where it might be hiding. During the fourth quarter, the iPhone X had five times the profits produced by 600 Android smartphone manufacturers. Some would argue that notches would be able to deliver more screen real estate for users, but some find it distracting when viewing video content in landscape mode.
For those who aren't big fans of the notch, Samsung is also working on something else. This is only a patent filing and there is no official pronouncement of future designs.
While the aforementioned patent offers nothing new per se when it comes to display, there is another document that has been spotted online, which reveals a second patent filed by Samsung.
And if the early production of the displays work out for Samsung, then the staggered release of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X that we saw previous year could be avoided by Apple.
