According to a Korean media outlet, Huawei is working on a strange smartphone design that could potentially mean the end of a notch era. But don't get too excited, because what follows might be even worse.
The design features a display cutout for the camera, only this time it's smaller and surrounded by screen on all sides. Instead of placing the front-facing snapper on the notch, the engineers want to put it away from the top bezel so they can squeeze a bit more display on the front and get rid of the notch.
This concept might introduce an entirely new problem. For example, how will the apps behave and how will the extra screen space be utilized? And still, the design pictured from ETNews shows a very slim upper bezel housing the earpiece, ambient sensor and the proximity sensor.
Also, we can't get over the notion that Huawei might be doing this for marketing purposes only - to brag about screen-to-body ratio. Then again, we'd be glad to be proven wrong and there to be an actual practical use case to this.
Further the report mentions a 6.39-inch LCD and a possible launch in Q4 this year. This is in line with Huawei's leaked roadmap last year.
curving the screen like iShit X is expensive, thats why the cost is high. now curving the top as well haha.. maybe in the near future though when prices go down
Curve the display from front, round the top and all the way down the back? If the phone could flip from the back outward you could get a super tall display too, 38:9 aspect ratio is the new future :p Or even under screen cameras if that is possi...
The final solution is a smaller, lower res, lower power display on the back (maybe epaper-like). Whose only purpose is as a selfie viewfinder (unless power consumption is low enough for always on use). Then you only need one camera, the main one...
