In recent years, smartphones have changed and have begun to resemble each other more and more: we talked about it in our dedicated special. The thinning of the frames has deprived the front of the devices of those elements that usually characterized them, and the identity has largely moved to the backcover, where the protagonists are increasingly large photographic modules and shades with particular gradients.
The fingerprint sensor under the display is now a feature common to many mid-range models, and not only more exclusive than the top models: to increase its comfort, however, the ideal would be to be able to identify by placing your finger on any point of the screen. And, as we told you a few days ago, that's exactly one of the things Huawei is working on.
The goal, according to statements that the company has released to colleagues of Android Authority, is to be able to bring to the market shortly, within one or two years, a smartphone that integrates both this technology and the coveted selfie-cam under the screen.
ZTE Axon 20 5G first smartphone with camera under the display: announcement on 1/9 42
Android 17 Aug
We know that the long-awaited moment, that of the arrival of the first smartphone with the under-display camera, is finally close: it will be ZTE at cut the head off the notch with Axon 20 5G. And from today we also have a date for the presentation, which will be held on September 1st. We can expect that next year will be precisely that of the disappearance of notches and holes for the front camera, at least on the flagship devices of the major manufacturers. At the moment Huawei is engaged in the study of a way that allows to implement these two innovative technologies without making the final price of the smartphone difficult to access.
The ability to place your finger anywhere on the screen to identify yourself clearly has a cost: the number of sensors required to cover such a large area is inevitably greater than what is needed for a limited area. In fact, Huawei claims to be focused on one aspect in particular, and that is to reduce the cost of sensors.
But that's not all, as there are potential implications for autonomy. In this sense, the Chinese giant says it has already thought of a solution: the system they are working on will supply energy from time to time only to a part of the screen, namely the one touched by the finger. In short, the next few years will mark another important change of face for smartphones, beyond Huawei.
