Is your next phone just going to be one giant screen?

It will be if Samsung has its way.

The latest concept design to make its way out of Samsung shows the company is working on a button-free, bezel-free, headphone jack-free phone that is all screen, all the time. And if you think that means a notch at the top, it's done away with that too.

The company filed a patent with the US Patent and Trademark Office this week showing a new Galaxy concept design that does away with bezels on the bottom and sides of the phone, and slims the top bezel down to wafer thin, notch-free bar.

First picked up by Dutch mobile news site MobielKopen, the patent is reminiscent of Samsung's Note design, showing a screen that follows the curved edges of the phone, similar to the Note 8 design that creates that glossy infinity-pool edge on the sides. But with the Note 9 expected to launch in August, this might not quite be the vision of the future we get this year.

But if the patent is any indication, Samsung is paring back its physical hardware in favour of hidden features and wireless connectivity.

In a design point that is sure to get Note fans on board (especially those who were disappointed that the fingerprint sensor didn't move under the screen in the Note 8) there's no clear fingerprint sensor on the rear of the phone. The bad news for wired headphone lovers? The designs also point to a lack of headphone jack on the bottom of the device.
