Huawei is supposedly testing out the under-display camera tech for its future phones. We have heard the reports on the same in the past and now a couple of patents are somewhat corroborating it as well.
As discovered by the sleuths over at LetsGoDigital, there are two Huawei patents published by the CNIPA (China National Intellectual Property Office). The patents show a phone which is completely bezel-less and has rounded edges with curves that go all the way to the back of the phone.
The two patents, however, indicate that there could be two different models of the same device. Both the designs share similar characteristics, like the edge-less display. However, one model has four cameras on the back and the other has triple rear cameras setup that is vertically aligned.
But the most noticeable thing in both the phones is the completely bezel-free profile with no notch, punch-hole, or any sort of cutout whatsoever on the screen, thus hinting at the under-screen camera tech. Also, there are no volume buttons on both the designs, but LetsGoDigital notes that the volume slider could be displayed virtually via a sidebar and points out that the out the power button is placed on the top.
Also, both the newly granted patents show a USB-C port at the bottom of the two phones. It is being assumed that the two models belong to high-end Mate and P-series.
Looking at the patents it can be deduced that Huawei is aiming at making two changes around the display. One is an under-screen camera and the other is the rounded display. The result could be an expensive phone and the world may not be ready for it. Let’s wait for more insights for more clear vision on the same.
