Huawei files patents for an in-display camera technology


Just after the launch of first under-display camera tech on Samsung Galaxy S10 series, many of the Chinese smartphone manufacturers started adopting this technology in its upcoming smartphones. We have already seen the under-display camera prototype from smartphone manufacturers like Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo. Now, another Chinese smartphone maker, Huawei has filed its a patent at the German Patent and Trademark Office for how the user interface would look like an under-display module is incorporated. 

The images have been shared by the folks at WinFuture reveal how Huawei plans to use the display above the camera in a different way. While Oppo and Xiaomi showed their camera module in the top-center of the display, Huawei is assembling the camera at the top-left corner of the display. 

Huawei is also looking to go the other way by not making the front camera completely invisible. As from the shared images, users can easily recognize the camera through an outline that will be present even if the camera isn’t being used. 

Another interesting feature in the UI is how Huawei implements the display above the camera for different purposes. When being on the camera app, the display at the top will read AI Mode with the text positioned right next to the camera. When on-call, the UI will show you the call info and the time you’ve been on the call. It’s possible that the display above the camera has been positioned to the left to show the most important notification whose icon pop up inside the ring.

As of now, it is unclear that the Huawei is working on an under-display camera or not. However, with this filing, the company ensures that no other manufacturer stoles its idea of the next-gen UI.
