Potential Samsung Galaxy Note 20 patent hints at a projector and ‘waterfall’ screen

The Galaxy S20 has only recently been announced, but with all of Samsung’s S series secrets now revealed, it’s time to think about the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 – which could get a display that wraps around the edge so far that it spills over physical buttons, according to a recently-granted patent. 

The ‘waterfall’ display appears as if it’ll go beyond what we’ve seen on prior Samsung Note phones, which sport an Infinity Edge screen, by bending more than 90 degrees around the edge of the smartphone, PatentlyMobile reports. 

Normally, that would leave no room for the typical power button, volume rocker or that like-it-or-not Bixby button. However, as the new patent demonstrates, these buttons would protrude through the display – if the patent ever gets used.

This design doesn’t seem totally implausible given Samsung’s practice of poking selfie cameras through front displays in punch-hole notches. The difference is that the cameras aren’t also breaching the glass covering.
