    [​IMG]Sony Xperia fans have been spared the monstrosity of displays with notches over the last couple of years. Sony thankfully rejected the use of a notch in their displays, favouring taller 21:9 displays with thinner bezels in recent handsets. A number of smartphone manufacturers have used notches over recent years, including the latest iPhone models, so we’re glad Sony didn’t follow the trend.

    However, some manufacturers like Samsung took a different approach, using a hole-punch for the front-facing camera. Now there are rumours that Sony might be looking to follow suit. A patent that was published on 19 December 2019 from Sony Corporation, shows some new renders pointing to a very slim top bezel. So small in fact that it could be seen that there is no room for a front facing camera in the bezel itself.

    The UI renders show icons on both the top and right of the menu bar, which could mean that Sony might be employing a hole-punch camera in the centre of the phone (much like the Samsung Galaxy Note 10).

    There’s no other evidence than that so far, so take it with a big pinch of salt. However, the news got us wondering how Sony fans would feel about a hole-punch display, particularly as Sony has kept their displays regular up until now – not a notch in sight. How would you feel? Is this something you would embrace, or would it put you off? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
