Manufacturers are adopting new designs for their smartphones so as to come up with a bezel-free display solution. They have indeed gained success in doing so. From notches to punch-holes, we have seen the display getting evolved in a short period. And, now smartphones with the under-display camera are on the way as well. But, let’s just move on to see what ZTE has to offer.
Well, according to a new patent, it seems like a new ZTE smartphone will bear dual punch-holes. As reported by TigerMobiles, ZTE has been granted a new patent from CNIPA for a smartphone with dual punch hole selfie cameras. We have seen notch designs before which include dual cameras but this type of design is new as it includes two punch holes. Well, we have to admit, while the company is subtracting the bezels from the display, the idea of putting two punch holes looks bizarre.
On the rear, the device seems to be holding dual cameras and they are stacked vertically followed by an LED flash. The patent reveals nothing else except the name of the patentee which is ZTE and schematics of the smartphone.
It’s speculated that ZTE may choose to bring a wide-angle and a depth sensor, or there’s a possibility that the second hole is just a room for an in-ear speaker. A usual speaker grill can be seen on the bottom and physical buttons are available on either side.
While the design looks definitely new, it’s not drastic at all. We believe the smartphone will soon hit the market. If you're a fan of ZTE’s designs then we can only say to curb the curiosity as the device seems to get unveiled soon.
