LG applies for design patent for bezel-less phone with under-screen camera

LG is an increasingly small smartphone player, but the company does not wish to be left behind.

In an attempt to keep up with the Jones the company has applied for a design patent in Korea for a new smartphone with a full-screen bezel-less design which includes a camera under the display.

The design comes in two versions – a “straight” standard one and a “curved” version with one edge much narrower than the other.

Instead of a notch, the screen features an oval hole for the front-facing camera.

It seems, going by the high level of interest in behind-display cameras Apple’s notch will be a short-lived phenomenon, as we edge ever closer to the featureless glass slab of our dreams.
