Apple's smartphone series iPhones have a huge fan base. Preferred for their features like camera, stable operating system, innovative innovations and more, these smart phones had notches on their screens for 2 years. Apple's new patent allows the sensors to be embedded in the screen to ice the notch with salt.
Introduced in 2017, the iPhone model, the iPhone X with the use of notches on the screen of smart phones to become enormously widespread Apple, this notch in the coming models can completely cancel.
Almost all smartphone manufacturers in the smartphone industry are developing their own way to eliminate the notch on the top of their smartphone. Apple is also able to go to such a way to keep up with the market.
How will the sensors be hidden?
Apple has made a significant investment in research and development, and is one of the leading companies in the industry. A patent on Tuesday points out that Apple can once again make a radical change in the industry.
The patent shows in detail the display technology including light transmitting glass. If Apple uses this technology, all the sensors (including the camera) that need to face the front of the device can be hidden inside the screen and, if necessary, the relevant area of the screen transmits the light so that the sensors can operate.
How will this technology change the design?
With the endless display coming to iPhones, the front of the devices will be completely covered. On the top of the handset, the small space between the screen and the frame will be compressed.
Although the new technology patented by Apple allows the camera and sensors to be concealed in appearance, the areas of the sensors may be protruding due to the special screen sections to be used.
This is not Apple's new idea.
A patent application filed by Apple again in 2009 showed a technology that allows the camera to be hidden behind the screen.
This method, which reduced the brightness of the screen in the area where the sensor was to be used and the sensor's ability to access the outside (light), was probably shelved due to insufficient technological advances at the time.
Now, there is no obstacle in front of Apple to implement this idea. Of course, Samsung also made serious investments in this regard, because the embedded camera race is likely to be won by a company other than Apple.
