The Global Design Database of WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organisation) had recently shared a few renders of a new patent by Samsung. This leaked patent is quite similar in appearance to that of the renders of Samsung Galaxy Note 10. The renders for this model were leaked earlier this year in the month of January by LetsGoDigital.
Design and Appearance
Coming back to the design and appearance of the new patent filed by Samsung with WIPO, these patents highlight the punch hole front camera set up used in place of the regular notch. The phone also features a horizontal dual-rear camera.

Further, due to its appearance, this new patent is also assumed to be one in the line of Samsung A50s or A70s model from the Samsung Galaxy series. These new patents were filed with WIPO a few days back in the month of May and were published last week.
The Punch Hole Camera Design Explained
Punch hole camera design is a hot new thing in the smartphone industry. The first ever patents had been filed in December 2018 by numerous other smartphone companies. Earlier Samsung’s competitors like Oppo, Xiaomi and ZTE too had filed patents for their punch hole front camera design. While this new feature is still gaining acclaim and admiration, Samsung has patented one of its designs having a punch hole camera and paired it with a horizontal dual-rear camera.
The Punch hole camera design is wholly different from the top-notch design. While a notch is often found on the top centre part of a smartphone, these notches have evolved into a far more compact screen, offering you more screen space. From a horizontal wide notch to a relatively narrow notch, these top-notches have further transformed into a water-drop notch and a slider notch like that in the Oppo F9 and Oppo Find X respectively.
A trend from 2018, top-notches were then replaced by the punch hole design. Simply speaking a punch hole refers to a cut out in the display screen. This punch hole design offers you a maximum display area without creating hindrance in your mobile’s display screen and looks quite elegant and classy. A punch hole design too can be found on the top of the screen but not necessarily placed in the centre.
How is the Design Different from Samsung Galaxy Note 10?
Earlier Samsung had brought out its Galaxy Note 10 with a similar front-camera appearance but the only difference in these two models is the positioning of its dual-rear camera. Where the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is expected to sport a vertical dual-rear camera, the renders of this new patent sport a horizontal dual-rear camera setup.
This phone will not support a headphone jack just like the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, the renders of which were recently leaked online.
While the news about the launch of Samsung Galaxy Note 10 along with its exclusive renders was first leaked by 91mobiles, The Inquirer too had framed a timeline of the various details about this phone’s launch.
