Samsung design patentPatent applications can often be the place where the most innovative and weird designs show their faces. The latest of these that has shown up at the USPTO is a Samsung design patent which appears to depict a Galaxy Tab-type device, but with a very curious hole in the bottom right corner. What this hole might be used for is absolutely beyond us, unless of course pant chains are making a comeback.

Samsung design patentThe rest of the tablet looks very standard: speakers, camera, and S-Pen, all typical of the Galaxy Tab experience. Of course, just because Samsung has taken out the patent, doesn’t mean that they will use it now or ever, but it’s interesting to wonder what they had in store when they decided to apply for the patent.

What do you think the hole would be used for? Let us know your thoughts on this Samsung design patent are in the comments.
