LG Patents Full-Screen Smartphone with Under-Display Camera
Multiple patents filed by LG with the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) and published on October 24 and November 2 show a smartphone design with an edge-to-edge display without bezels and an under-display camera, as discovered by LetsGoDigital.
The patents refer to two smartphone models, both with full-screen displays that spread from one edge to the other, one with straight edges and rounded corners, while the other has the right side of the screen curved for some unknown reason.
According to the LG patents published by KIPO both smartphone models they describe also feature flexible displays, a technology most manufacturers are supposed to transition to in the next few years.
Both models come with a hole in the display allowing for a camera to be added under the front cover glass, with the slot being of an oval shape to probably enclose two or more camera units.
