October 2018LGThe company submitted a design patent to the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) and was officially included on April 19, 2019. The patent provides seven design sketches that show the intelligence of a camera on the back of the fuselage with four cameras.Mobile phone.
Although LG's 16-camera phone was approved last year, there is currently no four-camera solution in LG's product line. The LG G8 ThinQ and LG V50 ThinQ, which were launched earlier this year, are equipped with a three-camera solution.
According to the latest design patent, LG plans to arrange four cameras around the flash. The fingerprint sensor is no longer on the back of the fuselage, I believe it should use the screen fingerprint unlocking scheme. Currently, there is no smartphone in the LG's extensive model range with a display fingerprint scanner.
According to the patent illustration, the bottom of the LG phone displays a speaker, a USB Type-C connection and a 3.5 mm headphone connection. Surprisingly, however, the device does not have any physical buttons. The left and right sides are made up of an aluminum frame without buttons. No buttons were detected at the top.
On the same day, LG also registered another design patent with KIPO. The smartphone also has a very narrow screen edge and a small drop-shaped notch. Also, no fingerprint sensor was found on the back of the fuselage. I believe that the screen fingerprint unlocking scheme should be adopted.
This LG smartphone does have several physical buttons. There is a long button on the left that may be used for volume control. On the right we see two buttons. However, the positioning of these buttons is striking because the lower of these two buttons is particularly low, making it difficult to operate with the thumb. This button seems to work for you as a shutter button in landscape mode.
Unfortunately, the abstract patent specification does not specify what type of camera it is. Smartphones with a single camera are rarely available. In addition, the edge of the screen is very narrow, and the foreign media speculates that this is not an economical mobile phone.
