The WIPO has published a Samsung patent that shows off an almost zero bezel design for its notebook. The patent, however, seems to be an ornamental one as no functionalities are described.

A new Samsung patent has been released by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) that shows off an almost bezel-less laptop design. The patent also shows a full length hinge similar to what the Surface Book 2 has. The patent, which was released on January 23, 2018, is limited to just the design and no new functionalities are being described.

The model in the patent somewhat resembles a Samsung Notebook 9. While the Notebook 9 had thin side bezels, it still had prominent top and bottom ones. In this patent, we see that Samsung has omitted the top and bottom bezels as well. A notable observation from this patent sketch is that there is no camera specified on either the top or bottom bezel. It will be interesting to see where Samsung would position the webcam. The hinge design is reminiscent of the Surface Book series from Microsoft, which was criticized for the gap caused by the hinge when the display is closed. Samsung's patent also shows a similar hinge design but apparently, the gap seems to be considerably reduced in this case. 

Apart from the design cues in the patent, nothing much is known at this point. It is not known if we would see this design debut this year and nothing can be speculated about the specs, either.
