While not an entirely new smartphone feature, Apple’s introduction of its “Dynamic Island” on the iPhone 14 Pro models was an admittedly clever way of utilizing the camera cutout on a smartphone display. Unsurprisingly, other OEMs have since followed suit, adapting the interactive notch for use with their own devices.
The latest of these companies to hop on the trend is Huawei – it’s expected that its upcoming Mate 60 Pro will feature a similarly-functioning camera cutout, according to some images that were leaked online. Intended to improve the phone’s biometric capabilities, the Mate 60 Pro will feature a 3D time-of-flight sensor inside the pill cutout on its display, for better security.
Of course, the extent of this feature remains to be seen, at least for the time being. Given that Apple’s Dynamic Island includes interactive notifications and widget functionality, it would be rather interesting to see how Huawei intends to outshine Apple in this regard.
Earlier on, Realme was one of the first smartphone OEMs to mimic the Dynamic Island on its Realme C55, an affordable Android phone. The company referred to this feature as the “Mini Capsule” cutout, which turns the phone’s hole punch camera into a hub for notifications, and other device information.
