IPhone X price tag is its real killer feature

Now this time Samsung is going to introduce it's next flagship with a iPhone X Style Phone Notch on its front screen as previously we found in iPhone X.

The South Korean tech giant has submitted a patent application for a design of a smartphone that features the infamous notch on the display. There is a small rectangular cutout with the front camera, earpiece and other sensors, above the screen of the phone.

Even the vertically aligned dual-camera setup on the top left corner is strikingly similar. There also appears to be antenna lines present on the back panel of the phone. It also includes a USB Type-C port, volume rockers, a power button, as well as a headphone jack. The front side is nearly all-display, while the back only has the dual cameras.

Samsung is experimenting time to time with it's smartphones, sometimes with the design of phone and some times with the interface. From releasing an ad taking potshots at the notch to incorporating it in a smartphone, Samsung might just have lost the bragging rights over its fiercest rival.

The RSI, or Relative Strength Index, is a widely used technical momentum indicator that compares price movement over time. If RDS_A's EPS is $1.10 the profit will hit $4.89B for 15.48 P/E. 60 funds opened positions while 107 raised stakes.

Most impressive of all is the fact that the iPhone X, which was slammed as being too expensive, earned 5x the combined profits of more than 600 Android device makers.

Hardcore Android fans hate the notch.

It has to be noted everything that gets registered in a patent office may not make it into the final device that hits the market as companies' sometimes tend to make several designs for reference objective before finalizing the actual product. And it seems like, Apple's biggest competition Samsung may join Team Notch soon.

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. Just look at this image, which shows 20 different iPhone X copycats in one picture.
