The closet came but for all accounts we did not come to stay. This chop on the iPhone screen, which later resulted in generalization in the Android segment, was an option to put some sensors and cameras at the top of the screen without thereby emptying the entire width of the central space.
Several brands have already shown how to leave that space, and Apple now patentes a new front camera to move from the center to the inside of the screen, the lens and thus display a screen free from any monocle.
Is it the beginning of the end of hack on the iPhone?
US2018 / 0321571, dated November 8, 2018, describes a camera integrated in the glass, which may be an LCD screen, with some features that can open the range of options for further readings.
In this patent, Apple also describes the cutting-edge solution to minimize the limits of smartphones.
This type of clean screen has already been used by several other manufacturers. As with cameras and sensors, several suggestions also occurred. Some use one slide behind the screen with the camera and the sensors, took the other camera away from the top that holds the sensors under the LCD screen and others in the frame.
Given that there has been a struggle to realize how to allocate technology without disturbing utility, brands like Huawei and Samsung have already presented their patents and Samsung's Infinity Displays are a good example of this effort and the Galaxy S10 should still have a screen more infinite, although there is some uncertainty, as the company recently showed pictures of 3 new options, some of which may still provide a kind of chin.
The new PDF file of the Apple patent was discovered by LetsGoDigital. However, the patent was filed on July 8, but has only been approved by US owned industrial real estate. As far as is clear, there is clear information about drilling or insertion of the camera into the glass, which can cover the camera lens.
The patent itself speaks of the lens's displacement, how it will be placed and which may have an LCD overhead, in addition to several details that will enable you to realize that there will be a connection between the cameras. Certainly, it leaves room for us to find out where Apple can put either the camera in the face ID or the sensors and will notoriously open the door at the end of the score.
We can therefore understand that iPhone X, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone Xr will be the only ones that can show in Apple's history this monocle that has generated a lot of fame for the Cupertino company.
