Over the past eighteen months, we've seen a host of creative design solutions geared towards making phones as bezel-less as possibles. Rectangular notches, circular notches, pop-up cameras, sliders, and most recently, punch holes.
Samsung brought the punch hole to the public eye last year and the design has been adopted by a few other OEMs, Huawei being the most notable of the lot. ZTE is set to do the same in the near future, and will take things up a notch if a new patent is anything to go by.
According to a new report, the Chinese company has filed a patent for a device with two punch holes. As if one wasn't bad enough. The design is undoubtedly meant to serve as a notch-less solution for a future ZTE device that will feature dual selfie cameras.
The Samsung Galaxy S10+ features two selfie cameras and actually has two punch holes too, but the two holes overlap to create a pill shape. ZTE's idea is a lot less ingenious, as it just has two holes positioned in the middle of the display with a few millimeters between them. They appears to be symmetrical, though. That isn't much, but we'll take any silver linings we can get.
