In the last couple of years, the smartphone industry has seen stupendous innovation. We came from the cluttered 16:9 aspect ratio to the modern 20:9 to even 21:9 landscape aspect ratios. The game was always about thinning the bezels to introduce users to an intuitive smartphone experience. Since last year we also came up with several interesting front design patents, with some being feasible and others just good for as concepts.
We have seen, pop-up selfie lens, center pop-up lens, hole-punch, and the standard notch. Chinese smartphone manufacturers such as Huawei and OnePlus have also been drifting its way towards a no-bezel display implementing a new Under-display selfie camera patent which they filed earlier. Now, Huawei is back again with another patent for the under-display front cameras. Let’s take a look.
Huawei in the past has filed two patents and both the patents look about the same except for the rear design. Well, the patent is for the Under-display selfie camera so apparently the rear design should not be a concern. But sources suggest that the new patent could be for some other device, while the older one should be a draft for some another Huawei phone.
Both the patents have a rim-less or bezel-less display with wrap-around sides. If we take a closer look, the first image shows two cameras at the rear with a probable periscope lens housed in a vertical module. The second image has a quad-camera setup at the rear.
As of now, these leaks don’t affirm anything but we can say that the company would be using some similar sort of design in some of its upcoming smartphones.
