ZTE is currently the only company that is commercially selling a smartphone with а selfie camera hidden under the display and it’s about to release its second generation any moment now. We expect the Samsung Galaxy Fold3 to also adopt the tech, Oppo has also been working on a solution, and now Huawei is on its way to join them after patenting a smartphone with a UPC.
The official documents came with illustrations that were used by the folks over at LetsGoDigital to create renders of the phone.
The image suggests this phone is likely to be a midranger. It looks a lot like the Honor X20 SE with its camera island and overall design, but of course patent drawings don’t have to reflect the actual upcoming products, so it may be something else entirely.
The actual patent was filed with the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA), which is little surprise as China is Huawei’s only major market when it comes to smartphones these days.
