Punch-Hole Displays Gaining Popularity as a Notch Replacement
November 18, 2019
More and more manufacturers are gravitating towards notch alternatives to house the front-facing sensors and OEMs like OnePlus and Xiaomi have added pop-up camera modules on their smartphones to achieve the seamless no-bezel look, while Samsung and Huawei have opted for punch-hole displays to house the front-facing sensor. The punch-hole display seems to have caught on quite well and leaks reveal that the next flagship from OnePlus will also feature a punch-hole display. Huawei’s sub-brand Honor already offers a couple of smartphones with the design. Honor will be launching the all-new Honor V30 in China on November 26 and the device will feature a dual punch-hole display like the one found on the Galaxy S10 Plus. This smartphone will house two selfie-shooters within the cutout on the display. The Honor V30 will feature 5G support and is the direct successor to the last year’s Honor V20 and is expected to offer flagship specifications at a competitive price. The device will most likely be released in international markets early next year under the View 30 moniker.
