Apple patented iPhone with a hole in the display for the cameraOn November 8, 2018, the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) published a patent from Apple Inc. for a 'camera integrated window'. The patent was applied for in June this year and is very technical and detailed. A smartphone is described with a hole in the display for the camera lens. The camera hole is placed in the top right of the device. There is no talking about sensors under the display. The patent only deals with the entire assembly process. The cover glass will be made of a different material, which is stronger and transparent. For example, aluminum silicate glass, such as Corning's DVTS. This would, therefore, be a replacement for the Gorilla Glass that has been used by Apple since the original 2007 iPhone. Apple and Corning have a relationship that goes back many years, also in the area of AR, they have found a partner in each other. This year, Apple invested $ 200,000 million in Corning, for Research & Development and equipment purchases. It is therefore likely that new innovation from Corning will be the first to be admired in an Apple iPhone, after which other smartphone manufacturers will also switch. The patent refers to several older specimens, the first patent related to this subject dates from January 2012. Such innovations do not come from day to day.
Apple iPhone 2019 modelsThe patent has been drawn up in such a technical way that it seems that Apple is ready to produce an iPhone in the near future with a selfie camera under the display. Logically, it will be the iPhone 2019 models that are expected around September. By that time we also expect to find an iPhone with three cameras on the back.
