Company Samsung registered with the WIPO Patent Office (World Intellectual Property Office) subscreen smartphone camera and an unusual mechanism.
What is known
The information was obtained by our colleagues from Let’s Go Digital. They also rendered the patent.
So, it presents a device with two displays of different levels: the main screen with a hole for the front camera and an additional one. It is mounted on a special mechanism between the main display and the camera sensor. Thus, the second screen covers the front sensor. The panel can display notifications, battery power, or time. When the front camera is launched, the mechanism moves down or moves to the side.
It looks interesting, but it is not yet clear whether Samsung will implement such a solution in future smartphones. If so, how strong will this structure be?
