Despite a long-standing decision to follow its path in designing proprietary devices, Samsung can still represent the clone of the iPhone X. This is indicated by a new patent issued to the company's engineers by the State Intellectual Property Office of China. The document describes a smartphone suspiciously reminiscent of Apple's flagship.
The main feature of the patented gadget, which evokes a permanent association with the iPhone X, is the characteristic notch on the top of the display. In it, the manufacturer decided to place a number of front sensors, including lighting and proximity, the camera and the iris scanner that make up the hybrid user identification system.
The future smartphone, unlike the iPhone X and Galaxy S9, however, is also distinguished by the display ratio to the area of the front panel. In fact, here the display occupies, if not 100, then at least 95% of free space. The only unoccupied place is that ill-fated excavation, because of which fans of the “apple” brand were accused of copying by more than a dozen vendors.
