In December 2018, we have seen the first smartphone with a punch-hole display. It came with a circular cut-out on the top left corner for the front-facing camera. Samsung even launched smartphones with a wider camera cut-out for placing dual cameras. Now, China’s ZTE is working on a smartphone with two separate camera cut-outs within the display. While there is no official confirmation from the company as of now, the patent applied by the company revealed the weird dual punch-hole design.
ZTE filed for the patent with the Chinese National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) and it was recently granted the patent rights. Apart from the two punch-hole cameras on the front, the rest of the smartphone design looks the same as anyother smartphone available in the market. The hardware buttons are placed to the right edge of the device. We can spot the SIM card slot on the left edge. The charging port, loudspeaker, and microphone are placed on the bottom edge.
It got a slight curve on the back of the device along with a protruding multi-camera setup. Talking about the display, the device still got a thin chin at the bottom. Just last month, the company launched the entry-level ZTE Blade A5 2019 smartphone in Russia. It comes with a glossy finish polycarbonate body and sports 5.45-inch display with HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, it packs the mediocre processor from Spreadtrum.
It comes coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage which can be further expandable using the MicroSD card slot. The Blade A5 2019 runs on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box with MiFavor skin laid on top. In terms of optics, the device comes equipped with a 13MP camera on the rear with f/2.0 aperture and an 8MP selfie camera on the front with f/2.4 aperture. It is backed by a 2,600mAh non-removable battery and measures 9.55mm in thickness and weighs 157 grams. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!
