Just last year, we saw the Essential Phone 1 and the iPhone X. And with these, started the ‘notch’ trend. every other phone now has a notch, or at least the modern 18:9 form factor. But our mission has remained the same – How close we can get to fully bezel-less displays? With phones having camera cutout?
To get a step closer to achieve this goal, Samsung and Huawei have come up with an exciting idea. To have a separate camera cutout for the phone. That sounds eximious. Both the companies have been teasing their technologies for a while, the latest being Huawei. Huawei posted a picture on Weibo (China’s version of Instagram) which has a cutout for a camera.
In this picture, Huawei mentions that we’ll find out more about the device in December, which is earlier than the launch event of Samsung Galaxy S10 or the A8S. Furthermore, Huawei has also told The Verge it would reveal more information on December 3 being particular.
We don’t know much about this phone except that it has a camera cutout and a headphone jack. That might be good news for those looking for a viable solution for the 2018 headphone jack crisis.
In Samsung Developer Conference, the company told us about how it will implement sensors under the display to achieve the almost bezel-less form factor. The display is called Infinity-O which has a camera cutout and is expected to be seen on future Samsung phones.
