ASUS, the popular motherboards, computers and other hardware components company, has already made headlines for its immersion in the telephone industry with the range ASUS Zenfone. While his new job is known, the company based in Taiwan has patented up to 3 variants of extendable cameras.
How they report from LetsGoDigital, the Taiwanese manufacturer ASUS has filed several design patents to the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) for a future smartphone with a full screen without a notch and that stand out for having up to three variants of extendable cameras.
The patents, which have already been approved and were published on December 22 and 23, 2018, illustrate various design options. For example, they stand out above all three variants of an ASUS smartphone with a pop-up camera. The models of these extendable cameras vary a bit, since you can see a fairly small camera to a much larger sliding camera.
ASUS patents a smartphone with a hole in the screen
One of them even leaves room to implement more than just a selfie camera. For its part, the speaker would be integrated into the top bezel, which turns out to be even smaller. It is not the only novelty that the company would be working on, since it has also patented the design of another new smartphone.
This time it's about an ASUS smartphone that would add to the hole-in-screen craze, which would be placed in the upper left part and where the front camera would be incorporated. A design similar to the one we could already see in the recently announced Honor View 20, Samsung Galaxy A8s and the Huawei Nova 4.
At the moment it is only a matter of patents, so it may be that these smartphones don't end up being a reality. ASUS is expected to announce its new smartphone at the Mobile World Congress 2019 to be held at the end of February in the city of Barcelona.
