If notches aren’t your thing and it freaks you out or makes you overwhelmingly frustrated, we know how it feels. The highly successful Apple iPhone X with the first of its kind notch support fired an array of smartphones from vivid brands sporting notches. Huawei’s P20 series uses a small notch but the brand is trying to squeeze the notch to the size of a camera with a ‘hole’. A source from the brand is believed to have spoken to the Korean publication ETNews about Huawei latest concept that will eliminate the support almost leaving only a hole on the screen which will be for selfie camera.
Presently at its conceptual stage, the hole in the screen design is pretty innovation as it will increase the amount of screen available while reducing the size of a notch because of which, only a handful of icons can be viewed on the status bar. The design dictates how Huawei will punch a hole in the middle of the screen for its front camera while the speaker, proximity sensor, and ambient light sensor that accompanies camera in a notch setup, these components will be fitted on a thin bezel at the top.
According to the sources, Huawei is working on this hole-punching technology and might roll out a 6-inch LCD display with a hole cut out in the fourth quarter of 2018 when it has lined up several devices to launch. Huawei has devices such as Huawei Mate Lite and Mate Pro in its lineup as of now.
Apple X notch support helped satisfy both full-screen and front camera layout that was later used by other smartphone manufacturers and it seems like there is no end to the list of upcoming smartphones with a notch. A front camera requires light to fall on its image sensor through its lens in order to capture it, however, Huawei decided to punch a hole through the smartphone panel in order to draw light from the surrounding into the panel that helps the front camera to take photos clearly.
Chinese manufacturer Vivo and Oppo recently unveiled its NEX and Find X with no notch and a full-screen layout respectively even though both these brands have been actively releasing smartphones with the notch. ETNews further stated how B-Boo – a Chinese smartphone maker, launched a full-screen smartphone with pop-up cameras similar to how Vivo unveiled its Vivo NEX with first elevating front camera. Similarly, both LG Display and Samsung Display are developing full-screen OLED panel without transmitters towards creating a full-screen smartphone with tiny bezels.
