Samsung Allegedly Operating On A Full Bezel-Less Handset

Almost all handset makers these days are attempting to attain the utmost screen to body ratio by reducing the bezels on their smartphones. Lately, Vivo and Oppo rolled out their handsets with zero bezels on the top and sides of the handsets. But there is something that stops them to eliminate the bottom chin from their devices.

Samsung Allegedly Operating On A Full Bezel-Less Handset

As per a report, Samsung is operating on an entirely bezel-less handset that is in a way akin to Huawei’s method of using the two metal stripes to support the display. The major dissimilarity here is Samsung wished to employ 4 metal strips rather than 2 on each side.

This new thought appears a little more delicate but consumers will be capable of replacing them if something goes south.

In 2017, on August 24, 2018, Samsung filed a patent that got the acceptance from World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) with the title “Display device and frame member.”

The patent was majorly applicable for handsets but it can be employed in other devices such as monitors, TV’s, and other electronic gadgets as well. As per the patent, the strips can be produced employing aluminum, metal, or patterned wood. Also, they can employ either electromagnet or permanent magnet and a U-shaped coupling that can be coupled together for including additional strength to the general structure.

Samsung also employed an analogous method in their “The Frame TV” and it seems like the firm is attempting to apply the same for their next handsets.

lately, a leak revealed that the upcoming flagship from Samsung dubbed as the Galaxy Note 9 might have a dedicated button for camera shutter, a trimmed bottom & top bezel, and a repositioned fingerprint scanner. A new leak had also disclosed that the upcoming handset from the Galaxy Note series will follow the analogous design pattern of its precursor.
