The various manufacturers of Android smartphones have long been studying possible solutions to make the front camera less and less “invasive” and even the Google team seems to be considering making important changes from this point of view for the next models from the Google Pixel range.
At least this is what seems to emerge from a design patent registered by the Mountain View giant and which, while not making explicit reference to the use of a camera under the display, suggests that this solution could be exploited to guarantee a next model of the range. Google Pixel (already the one that will be launched in 2021?) To have a screen without “interruptions”.
Here is the image that contains the clue we’re talking about:
Google Pixel 6 could follow the new trend
Obviously, this is not a new idea, as other manufacturers have already tried to exploit it for their smartphones and an example is represented by ZTE Axon 20 5G, a device that has also been available in our country for a few weeks.
Samsung also plans to exploit this solution in the coming months with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 (arriving in the second half of 2021) while Huawei has limited itself to announce the launch of a smartphone with this technology without providing further details in this regard.
At this point, one wonders if the Google team intends to follow this trend and already equip Google Pixel 6 with an integrated camera below its display, a hypothesis that at the moment cannot be excluded but which raises many doubts.
At present, in fact, this technology does not seem to be sufficiently “mature” yet and the first practical applications have shown that there are problems to be overcome before being able to guarantee users an experience capable of not making us regret “traditional” cameras.
We hope to know more within a few weeks.
