While the industry is yet to fully milk the display notch or waterdrop notch designs that have been gaining grounds in recent times, a ewinnovation seems to be in the offing. Recently, Samsung was rumoured to be working on an Infinity-O display design which would create a higher screen to body ratio with much more trimmed down bezels. The Korean giant was later rumoured to have started mass production of the display panels. Later on, Huawei was also rumoured to be working on the same display style. A Huawei model said to be the Nova 4 was spotted in a leaked picture recently with the same design.
Right now, an official Huawei poster teasing the display with an opening on the screen for the selfie camera has leaked. The poster which was obtained by GSMArena urges us to take One Step Further to See the Future. The icture is that of a bright sky with the moon signifying the hole in the display similar to Samsung’s Infinty-O opening. The poster also suggest that the device will drop in December.
If indeed Huawei launches the device in December, it would beat Samsung to hod the record as the first OEM to launch a model with a hole in the display. The hole will obviously house the seflie camera and on the leaked render, it is on the same line as the network and notification icons. The position of the hole should be less distracting compared to a notch but the phone’s software should behave the same way it does for notched phones i.e black bars at the sides when watching a video. We may still have to wait for more details to emerge.
