This is how it should be implemented, exactly as described here if you want to hide the camera, otherwise just leave a notch. Those companies that are doing away with the pixels and leaving dead space; why???
These holes are not the kind of "in"/under screen cameras I want to see! There must be a possibility to completely hide the camera under the screen pixels, and then turn those pixels off, or "hide" the screen-pixels, when the front camera i used!

It's really hard to dig up old news, but i clearly remember being fed up with the iPhone rumors before the release of Essential phone. Look at this source for example -
We were kinda sure at that point that new iPhone would have Oled, 3d sensing technology and all screen phone. These rumors were from a reliable source.
My point is that it's wrong to say Apple copied Essential.
Ok can we get the Notch back? Waterdrop one please or atleast move this thing to center to it does not block notifications and is hidden in status bar

Samsung was working long before Huawei according to this report. Look at the patent image and match the selfie camera placement with rumored A8s.
Huawei is definitely much bigger now, but it still has a habit of being a "Hyena". Look at how fast they come up with the notch knockoffs. Chinese brands are just damn fast.

Huawei is working on this design long before Samsung released the Infinity designs and they are almost as big as Samsung on mobile phone department so it is not easy to just copy paste a design on a couple of months like you are mentioning. Maybe Samsung copied the design btw since the sources on the article were Korean but since I dont have proof this is unfair speculation. To be fair against all, the one one that gets the product first on the market usually 'owns' the idea.

Anonymous, 27 Nov 2018Huawei is always at the forefront of new tech... this is a big reason they will reach no 1 soonYeah, they are too fast in stealing other's ideas. They will be probably be number 1 soon.
I'm waiting for the time when only Chinese phones remain in the market.
Oh, Boy! It'll be a bloodshed then. In the end, most advanced thieves among them would win.

Tell me who who started the "notch" design?
Let me guess you would probably say "Essential".
Essential launched its notched phone 1 month before Apple did.
Do you think a brand like Apple can copy a design and execute it in 1 month?
You must be a brain dead if you think like that. The production cycle of a typical iPhone is around 4 to 5 months, same goes for Samsung and other big brands.
If you were following GSMArena around that time, you must have been fed up with the confirmed rumors of a notched iPhone before we knew anything about Essential's phone.
Dude, use your head. Big corporations are much slower than a small one.
When Essential launched their phone, it was clearly a rushed phone. Its software was unfinished. The only app they added was unfinished. They just designed the phone, manufactured it and rushed it out.
It was a gorgeous phone, no doubt about that.
Huawei is always at the forefront of new tech... this is a big reason they will reach no 1 soon
