Samsung is one of the only big name phone makers that has so far resisted the urge to release a smartphone with a camera cut-out in the display. But eventually the notch comes for us all.

While there was no notch to be seen in the Infinity Flex Display foldable phone prototype Samsung showed off during the keynote for the Samsung Developer Conference, Android Police notes the company also took a moment to show a few designs it’s considering for other upcoming phones. Three have camera cut-outs.

It’s possible Samsung could eventually take a different approach toward delivering a bezel-free smartphone. At least one display the company revealed doesn’t seem to have a notch at all… so maybe the company is considering a pop-out camera or a slider.

Or maybe the company is waiting until it can find a way to hide a camera underneath the phone’s cover glass.

Anyway, here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

  1. Manufacturers obsessing abou notches reminds me
    of when car tailfins were all the rage. Stupid obsession
    with useless features.

  2. Im tired of this trend of making stupid compromises in device usability just to avoid bezels. I like bezels, they make it possible to hold onto my phone.

    1. Even worse, they actively deceive consumers.
      The longer aspect ratio is useless in videos, when taking a photo or video, or in many many Apps… and so it yields a SMALLER screen in a LARGER device.

      Only Apple, who controls the hardware, software, and ecosystem…only they are in a position to be able to alter the aspect ratio. And even that is a painful journey, just see their history!
