Apple Could Use Small Cutout Instead Of Notch For TrueDepth Rear Camera System On Future iPhones

The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has approved a new patent from Apple, according to the patent, Apple intends to develop a "real full-screen" design with a camera and a must-have sensor array completely put together in a small cutout, the patent applications was filled on June 27 this year.

Apple specifically summarized it as an exclusive solution to how to achieve "real full-screen", which mentioned how to hide the camera inside the panel, this solution is especially suitable for products that uses all glass such as the LCD displays. As you can see from the picture below, the device has a cutout in the upper right corner of the screen, and then inserts those sensors into the cutout.

From the patent description, which also talked about what materials might be used to make such cutout. Apple claims that aluminosilicate glass (such as Corning's DVTS glass) will be a glass material suitable for the cutout. Other glass materials include but are not limited to soda-calcium, borosilicate, etc.

Of course, the technology is also designed for other products, including laptops (ie MacBook), as well as tablets (such as iPad). Samsung and LG also filled similar patents. In any case, whether Apple will implement a "true full screen" design in the new iPhones in 2019, we have to wait another whole year to find out!
