In April 2019, ZTE submitted the patent application to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and announced it to the outside world on October 17, 2019.
The patent describes a pre camera intelligent machine with a small screen opening, and the position of the opening is quite unique. In order to reduce the "abrupt feeling" of the camera as much as possible, ZTE decided to make the front opening better hidden in the status buoy of the signal bar.
As shown in the figure, the signal strength information can be seen in the upper left corner of the screen, and there are icons such as electricity indicator in the upper right corner. The front camera opening is hidden in it, which is hard to be noticed by the user.
In addition, the patent document also indicates that the screen of the machine has a "sound transmission area" (screen sound generation technology), which means that the speaker, receiver / microphone can be placed under the screen.
This has beenMobile phoneManufacturers have practiced, such as LG G8 thinq at the beginning of this year. Unfortunately, the patent did not reveal the back design of the ZTE intelligent machine.
