They openly laughed at it, but ultimately, Samsung too will give in to the notch fashion on their smartphones. After trying to kill her, the chaebol will therefore adopt her. Would it be theadmission of the failure of “Sensor Integrated Technology” (homemade technology based on the integration of 4 key functions under the AMOLED panel of the smartphone)?

The South Korean giant despised this design element so much that in 2017, it went so far post a video to make fun of Apple and his invention. A year just after this bravado, Samsung has yet announced the upcoming commercialization of several models of smartphones incorporating the famous notch. The company introduced three new types of screens : the Infinity U, which incorporates a drop-shaped notch, the Infinity V, with a… V-shaped notch, and the Infinity O, with a circular notch. If the presentation of its long-awaited foldable phone was the highlight of the developer conference, no one will fail to underline the irony of the situation.

This new type of screen (for Samsung) will be marketed from 2020 and its adoption by Samsung is a sign that the notch, more than a fashion effect, is now an essential design element. Beyond its aesthetic aspect, the notch makes it possible to integrate more electronic components in smartphones (camera modules or sensors in this case).
