Another hardware home button less device patented in U.S. and something that could be fingerprint scanner on the back cover
Samsung is busy lately providing us with various design patents. What is most common for all the design is that all of the patented smartphone designs are missing hardware button, feature slightly redesigned bezel and some of them shows with curved display, not bendable – just a bit curved.
This one also shows something interesting, a back cover speaker at the bottom and most important unidentified equipment on the right that when you hold device normally could be used as a left hand fingerprint scanner. Makes sense, browse deveice using right hand and swipe the finger while prompted without changing grip of the device.
Patent direct link here and in extracted form below, enjoy.
