First Look at LG’s New Phone Through Design Patents

December 3, 2018


LG recently filed three design patent applications for its new phone with the Korean Intellectual Property Office.

The patent applications describe a phone with a curved display and quad-camera, and a fingerprint sensor on the back. The notch at the top of the screen has been replaced by a hole, which will allow for more flexible placement of the front-facing camera and increase the screen-to-body ratio of the phone. The oval-shaped camera hole suggests that the phone may include two front-facing cameras or a front-facing camera and an earpiece.

The patent applications demonstrate that LG is working to create a phone with nearly 100% viewing area. The new device will be nearly bezel-less, in keeping with the smartphone trend started by Apple with the introduction of the iPhone X.
