NNew smartphones appear every month, even in difficult times like these. They regularly get stronger processors, but in terms of design, comparatively little has been done for a few years. The first manufacturers are trying to bring a breath of fresh air into the uniform with foldable displays, so far with moderate success. Huawei is now taking a different path and has patented a small but fine innovation. One Media report According to the company in China recently secured the design rights to a smartphone with a rear secondary display. This is not about a full-fledged additional screen. Rather, the new feature is a kind of status screen in mini format.
Mini displays possible in several variations
According to published concept images, it is located in close proximity to the main camera and shows, among other things, the time. It is not known whether the display also provides further information such as information about incoming messages or the temperature. It also remains uncertain whether it is an interactive touchscreen. Apparently you want to operate the small screen permanently switched on in always-on mode. In further pictures, Huawei shows variations of the concept in which the display is positioned either above, below or between the camera lenses. It remains unclear whether one of these models will actually make it onto the market. Manufacturers often secure patents as a precaution, and actual implementation does not always follow.
