Since Xiaomi released the world’s first full-screen mobile phone MIX in 2016, the era of full-screen smartphones has officially opened. So major smartphone manufacturers around the world have successively launched their own full-screen flagship models. As we later saw, under-screen camera played a huge role in this.

However, due to technical limitations, manufacturers can only adopt various special-shaped screen designs such as notch screens, punch-hole screens, and pop-up lenses to solve the installation problems of front lens, earpiece, infrared sensor and other components.
With the rapid development of technology, true full-screen smartphones with under-screen camera technology have been born one after another.
Recently, Huawei’s disclosure of a new smartphone appearance patent has aroused heated discussions among users.
From the Qicha website, we can learn that Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. has disclosed two “smartphone” appearance patents.
The publication numbers are CN306350871S, CN306350870S, and the application date is July 22, 2020.
The patent abstract shows that the main point of the design of this product lies in the shape of the product.
Among them, the patent with the publication number CN306350871S is the most special.
As we can see from the photo, there is no opening on the front of the phone. At the same time, the middle frame on the top of the phone is not provided with an opening for lens lifting.
According to speculation, the machine is most likely to use under-screen camera + screen sound technology.
The back cover of the smartphone uses a splicing process, and the upper and lower parts have different colors and materials.
Among them, the upper part is made of metal or glass, and the lower part is made of plain leather.
The lens part uses a rear quad-camera matrix module, similar to the Huawei P series.
Another patent uses a left-mounted double-punch, hyperboloid screen design.
As this is only an appearance patent, the configuration parameters of the machine are not yet known.
Based on the current information, it is expected that a number of smartphones with under-screen lenses will come out in the second half of this year.
