While everyone seems to have jumped on the notched display bandwagon, a new patent shows that LG will be taking a different approach.
The display arm of the Korean electronics giant has had one of its patents published that shows a new take on its FullVision full-screen displays. The patent was filed in September last year and was published on Friday, February 23.
The display has rounded corners like we have seen on LG’s recent releases. However, what catches your attention is a hole within the display, positioned just a few mm to the top. Our guess is that the hole will house the earpiece, sensor, and possibly the front camera too.
Is this a better take on full-screen displays? Maybe not, as we can already think of how distracting the hole can be like a bunch of dead pixels on the screen. Nevertheless, we are still eager to see how the user interface works with the display.
The patent doesn’t reveal much about the screen. Notwithstanding, we presume this may appear in an upcoming device sooner than later, probably the LG G7 or whatever LG decides to call it.
What do you think of LG’s display? Hit or fail?
