Chinese manufacturing giant, Huawei, has been quite consistent in the industry. However, since the multiple bans on the company by the U.S., its development in the smartphone industry has slowed down. However, the company still has some technological advancements that it is bringing to the industry. A recent Huawei patent reveals the company’s solution for a smartphone display without holes. The patent of Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. shows that it is a screen for a “holeless” smartphone display.
The abstract shows that the design product is mainly used to provide network communication, voice calls, transaction processing, etc., and its design point lies in the shape of the product. It is worth mentioning that, judging from the patent pictures, there is no opening on the screen of the mobile phone. There is also no pop-up camera on the top of the smartphone. As of now, we can not be so certain whether or not this device uses an on-screen camera.
In addition, the patent image also shows that the rear camera module is oval, and the bulge is not large. Huawei released its first true full-screen mobile phone in 2019, the Huawei Enjoy 10 Plus. However, this smartphone uses a pop-up camera to achieve a true full-screen display. The mobile phone in the patent is likely to use an on-screen camera technology.
