Apple patents hole-in-display selfie camera for the top right corner

Apple has elaborated further and in greater detail on the hole-in-display solution to minimize bezels on “all-screen” phones. Some employ notches, some sliders, others trim the rims, and soon we may see small openings in the displays themselves that would house the front-facing paraphernalia, starting with the selfie camera.

Huawei has such a patent, and Samsung already presented this type of screen as an O-type in its new Infinity line of displays.
