No notch this time around

We witnessed a lot of new concepts in the Android ecosystem this MWC. The Vivo Apex concept smartphone was one of the most talked-about concepts in town last week owing to its revolutionary pop-up camera for selfies. Now, the upcoming Essential Phone 2 is supposedly going to feature a similar tech.

The first-generation Essential Phone was a revolution in itself if we talk about design. As a matter of fact, it was the first Android smartphone to bring the notch on the display concept and even the iPhone X followed suit.

This time, the company has decided to follow yet another amazing concept made popular by the Apex. Rather than following the notch design again which was not so liked by many, the company has decided to hide the front camera in the top of the device’s body in order to achieve a 90%+ screen-to-body ratio.

Recently, Essential’s co-founder and the inventor of Android, Andy Rubin posted in one of his tweets saying that Essential had filed a patent for a similar design in May 2016.

If we look at the patent, the design looks absolutely incredible and it shows a similar pop-up camera tech like the Vivo Apex. On top of that, it shows literally no bezels at all at the front meaning that the Essential Phone 2 could very well be the first-ever true bezel-less Android smartphone.
