Huawei’s patent on foldable phones reveals a unique solution to hide the camera bump and reduce device thickness

HIGHLIGHTS
✅ Huawei has filed another patent for its foldable phone design.
✅ Folding the phone reveals a camera feature on one side.
✅ Patented technology might offer a solution for Huawei Mate Xs successor.

As Report at 91mobiles, It seems that Huawei is gearing up to release yet another foldable phone as the company recently filed for a new patent with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). A crease is found right at the middle of the phone where it folds, which can be seen after it folds.

A rectangular module with four camera sensors protrudes from the back of the device. The idea is to reduce the device’s thickness when folded, but it offers a solution interestingly. As you can see in these images, the phone has a cutout on the right side to allow the protruding camera module on the left side to fit inside the cutout when folded. Therefore the device is thinner when folded.

Folding phones usually wobble when placed on a flat surface. Using a special cutout to place the camera module, this design offers a solution to the problem. It is a very practical solution, but it needs to be seen how deep this can go and how it will affect the display’s durability. As well as reducing the thickness of the phone, it protects the camera lenses if it is dropped. In addition to the camera cutout, the Huawei foldable phone has a typical design with a hinge on the middle and a large display on the front, probably with a noticeable crease.

Since the original Huawei Mate Xs had a large camera bump, this might be a potential design of the Mate Xs successor. Since it’s still in the patent stage, it’s unclear whether Huawei will bring such a design to market, but it’s interesting to know that Huawei has unique designs in mind.
