Probably. There is a possibility that Samsung made different models with the same casing and covered that port in computers whos motherboards didnt have the HDMI port. But it's not likely that they did that since HDMI ports are real cheap to add.
remove it to see. There can be no harm in removing that plug even if it is just an empty hole.

probably, and it may be just a dust cover.What samsung is it?

Usually when a port is covered its because its non functional, eg if the pc could take a different cpu that has got hdmi out it would be covered if the current cpu could not give hdmi out. or if it was a desktop, and onboard video was disabled when a 2nd gpu were fitted so the port is disabled because the 2nd gpu is the windows DEFAULT output.

It could be a cover with an HDMI port under it, or it could be a blanking plate where other models of that laptop have a port. Since you've told us nothing about your laptop and haven't provided a picture, we can't be sure.

Is there are a reason you haven't just looked yourself?

Starrysky:
With no picture or model number of some "samsung laptop" (there are dozens), how to guess.
Here's hoping that someday you realize how many details are required to get adequate guesses from far away on Yahoo Answers.
chrisjbsc:
There might be! But it might be a SIM card slot, not an HDMI port.

There could be- just get the rubber off just to be sure.
Jamin:
It's not rare for there to be a cover on them to keep dust out, or protect them when being shipped.
Scott:
ever think of maybe looking?
