The notches on the smartphones are now gone, and we have got the holes on the smartphone screens. The new concepts come from Huawei that has a cutout for the earpiece on the smartphone. The concept is similar to the Samsung Infinity-O display. The earpiece cutout on the Huawei’s display comes as a part of a design patent filed with the USPTO.
Interestingly, the patents don’t mention the selfie cameras. The concept is different from the one with a cut out for the camera and earpiece on the bezel above it. Strangely, the patents reveal that the in-display fingerprint reader will have its new position under the camera on the back.
Huawei seems to try new designs, but cutout for earpiece is not the best thing to do. The problem of earpiece has a solution of getting a piezoelectric speaker, and it doesn’t need an additional cutout.
