The American patent office USPTO published a patent from Samsung Electronics on June 19, 2018, requesting protection for a futuristic smartphone design. In the patent that was applied for last year in September, the design of a smartphone is shown with an extremely high screen-to-body ratio. This is the design that Galaxy smartphones are waiting for. The edges on the sides and bottom are minimal while also the upper edge is reduced in thickness. In the thin edge there is still room for the speaker and a front camera.
The futuristic design is not only visible on the front of the device. A second display can still be found at the back of the smartphone. At least, it seems. The patent does not show a description of the design so that this can not be said with certainty. In the illustration, this delineated space is shown as a display.
It is therefore possible that this room is used for something other than a display. However, the front of the device shows that Samsung is working on a Galaxy smartphone with a higher screen-to-body ratio than ever before. Moreover, it is noticeable that there is no physical fingerprint scanner present; not at the front but not at the back.
Is this the real design for the Galaxy S10?
