According to a patent filed by the Russian Federal Industrial Property Office discovered by foreign media 91mobiles, Huawei seems to be preparing a new mobile phone rear camera layout.
The patent picture shows the central axis rectangular camera module on the back of the phone, which can accommodate four camera sensors, two smaller sensors and an LED flash. Interestingly, no Huawei mobile phone has adopted such a camera design , which means it may appear on Huawei’s upcoming flagship or mid-to-high-end models.
In addition, there is a pill hole for selfie camera in the upper right corner of the front of this phone, which has also appeared on Huawei Nova series phones, such as Nova 6.
Naijatechnews found that the Huawei mobile phone screen frame in the patent is very narrow, the power button seems to be embedded with a fingerprint sensor, and the rear panel is slightly bent to the edge, which may be for a better grip. The USB Type-C interface, speaker grille, main microphone and SIM card slot are located at the bottom, while the top edge seems to accommodate an auxiliary microphone for noise reduction, or an infrared transmitter.
This phone does not have a 3.5mm audio jack, and the rear camera module does not seem to stand out much. Whether Huawei will actually launch a phone with this rear camera design remains to be seen.
