Update: April 26
Apart from the leak, the image is not related to the context of this content and it’s actually a computer-generated render of a different smartphone.
Actual Story: April 25
With the smartphone revolution, the manufacturers have not only changed the size of the display but they’ve found new ways to reduce the bezels and maximize the display view. The search for a maximized display view has brought us solutions such as hole punch and pop-up selfie camera.
However, there could be a new camera solution coming from Huawei that will enable a real full view screen. A well-known tipster from Weibo recently posted an alleged render of an upcoming Huawei phone equipped with a new display design.
According to the render, the phone shown in the image has a full view display with no hole punch or notch design and it curves from edges. The bezels on top and bottom are also thin.
If you look closely (full images linked below), you’ll found that the UI has a new taskbar above the status bar with MINIMISE and CLOSE icons on the left and right side respectively.
The most interesting thing is, there’s no pop-up camera on this phone. We tried to expose the image with the highest brightness and confirmed that there’s no movable camera spot on the top.
It means two things – first, the phone has an under-screen camera or the phone doesn’t have a front camera, which is a rare possibility.
If it has an under-display camera, then we have to bring you back to a patent filed last year and fits perfectly on this phone.
Somewhere around July 2019, Huawei filed a patent in Germany for the under-display camera. The patent also includes sketches revealing the actual design and how it works.
The patented design has features such as changing the behavior of the top bar according to the app or uses cases. Most importantly, the camera is hidden under the screen and appears only with the app.
Currently, Huawei has not confirmed any such phone with the design shown below. Also, if it’s really a Huawei phone, then there are fair chances of it being the upcoming Huawei Mate S flagship. Still, we’ll wait to see more pages to unfold of this story.
Under Display Camera Patent:
Upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 camera is definitely unique
A phone’s camera capability brings many possibilities and Huawei phones are a perfect specimen for this camera trend. Since the launch of Huawei P9 and Mate 9 devices, the Chinese tech maker has continuously challenged itself and brought new competition for other smartphone makers.
The result of this self-competition brought inspiration for many of the manufacturers to increase their efforts. Huawei P30, P40, Mate 30, Mate 40 Pro and the latest Huawei P50 Pro are a top player that has established Huawei as the smartphone camera king.
Aside from the camera specifications and large camera modules, the camera design is also something that every user pursues. That’s not it, in the age of quick photography, every consumer wants to get the best camera design too. Therefore, the Huawei phones are not only bringing a unique design that boasts high-quality images but their camera design has a unique language to explain how much power the camera could be.
As mentioned above, there are many smartphone makers that Huawei has forced to increase the camera specification including South Korean smartphone maker – Samsung.
Samsung Camera design:
Samsung has made a significant change in its flagship devices and the camera has been an essential focus of its smartphones. But, we cannot doubt the ability that Samsung has in its own domain and its access to technology as well as the precision to build devices is also praisable.
Samsung Galaxy S21:
Earlier this year, Samsung launched its annual S-series flagship – S21. The lineup consists of three models – S21, S21 Plus, and S21 Ultra. Compared to the S20, Samsung has made significant changes in its smartphone design algorithm that are hard to achieve for another smartphone maker (excluding Huawei).
So, what is changed?
Well, the S21 speaks for itself, Samsung has placed the camera bump in a unique style that blends into the frame of the device. The combination of the rear bumper and the camera design is mesmerizing and the premium rear finishing complements the overall looks and feel.
Samsung Galaxy S22:
The tipster – OnLeaks has jumped into the matter and brought in some amazing graphics of the upcoming Galaxy S22 series as well as the Ultra model. The tipster again used his timemachine to share this yet-to-be-released phone’s CAD renders on the surface. (via SammyFans)

Let’s move on, the tipster has made all of these renders available including S22, S22 Plus, and the S22 Ultra. Aside from the standard and plus versions, we’re here to talk about the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, especially its camera.
According to Digit.in, the S22 Ultra expands at 163.2 x 77.9 x 8.9mm and has a thickness of 10.5mm including the camera bump. The camera of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is shaped similarly to the “P” letter. The camera has a quad lens along with an LED flash and there are also some color sensors. However, a specifications sheet remains unknown at the moment.
Onleaks is always accurate about its design leaks and in our opinion, this design looks innovative and a bit more that Samsung consumers should look forward to…
