The TCL phone should receive a curved screen on the sides, on the rear panel there is a non-standard camera
TCL is known as a TV manufacturer, but it also sells smartphones. Previously, the company released smartphones under the Alcatel brand, and this year TCL launched the production of smartphones under its own brand. Now it became known that the company has patented the design of a smartphone with a sub-screen camera.
A well-known manufacturer of TVs is preparing a smartphone with a sub-screen camera
Xiaomi and Oppo already demonstrated prototypes of smartphones with a sub-screen camera last year. Visionox, a company that develops innovative screens and supplies them to smartphone manufacturers, announced this week that it is ready to mass-produce displays with a front-facing camera. Later, information appeared that Huawei would be the first manufacturer to launch a commercial smartphone with a front-screen camera. In addition, the company wants to receive exclusive rights to release such smartphones before the end of the current calendar year.
The TCL phone should receive a curved screen on the sides, and a non-standard camera is located on the rear panel. Moreover, the patent states that the aspect ratio of the screen is 21: 9, like the Sony Xperia 1 II.
This week it also became known that TCL will show its first smart TV with a QLED screen next Thursday.
