Bezel-less displays are all the rage right now everyone bringing the best of this feature for its device. What started with Xiaomi device Mi Mix has become a trend feature. While Essential‘s and Apple notch design seems to be something manufacturers LG, Huawei, and Asus are aping, there are others trying to bring on some originality. Not too long Vivo showed-off their Apex smartphone with a retracting selfie camera, which was widely praised for having a special bezel-less display without a notch. Now, it seems like another Chinese Mobile company might be looking to get some praises for another special bezel-less feature.
Slashleaks a renowned leaker has reported that Meizu has finally secured a patent right pertaining to a full-screen smartphone design that features the main camera module hidden behind the display. According to Slashleaks, Meizu will be using a graphene glass display which, thanks to its unique transparent nature, would permit light to travel through and hit the hidden camera sensor.
For those of you unaware, we have had previous reports of a similar device from Meizu, namely, the Meizu 15 Plus. Early reports suggest that Meizu has been planning to release a new phone with a “full-screen” bezel-less design in Spring 2018. While a render of the said device had been leaked, many users were left wondering as to where had Meizu actually placed the front camera and the earpiece. From what it seems, the aforementioned patent could pertain to this device, and explain how Meizu have managed to hide the camera underneath the display.
Personally, I genuinely appreciate the way companies such as Meizu and Vivo are taking part in the trend bezel-less scene. It is no doubt that this bezel-less displays feature are great to look at, but the idea of implementing a notch everywhere is kind of stupid to me and don’t know about you. Competition should come from choices, not from copying. If the Meizu 15 Plus is actually the device in talk with regards to the above patents, I, for one, am definitely excited for it, for this is one design that actually appeals to me.
