Huawei patents phone design with a hole in the display for the earpiece

09 November 2018
No, not the selfie camera - though the company is considering that too. Pretty soon displays may look like Swiss cheese.

Your every picture video will have a black hole just like stain can not be wipe off.

Anonymous, 10 Nov 2018Then why note 9 and S9 didn’t sell well even Samsung admit that?!Like really the problem is not on the notch nor jack, the masses of people DO NOT care about that, as long as the trend goes people will buy into it. THIS applies to everything.

So to answer your question,
1. Note 9 is premium flagship, designed for business people that slightly better than Note 8 so people who have note 8 thinking it's not worth enough to upgrade to note 9
2.

I mean that Huawei and other Chinky brands like Oppo and Xiaomi do copy Apple. Especially Xiaomi from laptop to Apple TV to Tablets they copy the names of it and even the Mi store they copy Apple's layout. like wtf. lol

That's why China patent is grow fastest in the world. Every little thing can patent.

Samsung Galaxy, 10 Nov 2018Better to be never than late, nobody wants a notchYou got it wrong. Nobody wants a bezel. Bezeled phones had their sales slip as compared to notched phones.

You are a strong minority, you are wrong. Get over it.

[deleted post]Sits in the way of the display , kinda makes me it’s pointless , this will flop on impact.. it’s worse than the notch at least you can cover the side with your thumb it’s doesnt defeat the purpose of making its smaller it still impedes the screen making its a pointless design no befenfits.. you would have to be dumb to think it has a point where it’s located..

Dumb. How about placing ear piece ABOVE the screen, like a thin crevice on top between glass and frame?

Do people understand that when a patent is available for everyone to see, it was registered at least 2 years ago? Patents that are visible now are not indicators of future devices, but most likely of devices that are already on the market... Also, companies try to cover everything they can in patents, it doesn't mean they will built a device like that. They probably have patented the notch with camera, earpiece, camera+earpiece, camera+earpiece+whatever, just to have all designs covered... once they decide they won't be doing it (like they probably wont be doing the cutout just for the earpiece), they just drop the patent (stop paying for it), and it becomes available to everyone...
