Huawei patents smartphone with under-display camera

Smartphone With An 'Under-Display' Selfie Camera

Huawei has filed a patent for smartphones with an under-display selfie camera. The tech giant filed two patents back in 2019 that has finally been published by the CNIPA (China National Intellectual Property Office).

The patents also reveal that the phone will not have volume buttons, just like the Mate 30 Pro. Users will have to use a virtual slider to control the volume.

In the patents, 7 product images were featured that revealed the design of the yet to be announced Huawei smartphone. Both patents depict similar devices, with the only difference being the rear camera module. So, the patents could be the same smartphone, but with different variations to cover all bases.

The front of the devices is shown to be bezel-less, with no notches of any kind to hold selfie camera, while there is no visible mechanism for a pop-up camera.

Although the two patents show little difference, it”s possible that they are for two entirely different models.

Huawei may be planning to launch a variety of smartphones with under-screen selfie cameras.
