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.

Sort by:

This implementation is unnecessary. Piezoelectric speaker already available. Bone conduction speaker too. Why they have to make a hole just for THAT?!! If it for camera I would understand. Dont be that guy who put notch off center like Zenfone.

Next step is to patent a hole for the fingerprint scanner, big square hole in the bottom part of the display......

WOW instead of having small cut out between frame and display - now you get a freakin' hole on your screen. Such innovation LOL... then again - where will they put front facing camera and face ID? They are either gonna ditch them or it'll still have a notch and hole in screen aswell LOL...

If you want to push innovation, then create a patent that literally has advantadge such as in display camera. Sigh type guy of you that follow anything as "innovation" are more lame than crybabies

Look at all these comments. Complaining about every single thing, is that all what you can do??

Make your own smartphone then. See if you could do it better. I dont think so.
You complain about thick bezel, but you also complain about notch and this..

so if anybody else, make slit on the screen, Huawei can sue them?

Haters gonna hate whatever you do. So be it -,-

Geraldo, 09 Nov 2018Since when Chinese know what patents mean? Lol go use your trusted Google to check for global patents and copyrights filed.

and the design seems to have a 3.5mm hole
