Recent leaks suggest that Huawei is working on a smartphone with Dual–Screen. Placing one additional display on the back panel.
According to reports from gizchina, Huawei recently registered a patent for this new device. Renders of the Huawei Dual–Screen Smartphone were also published by gizchina thanks to HoiINDI designer who created the 3D images.
This is not the first phone to feature a display on the back panel. Most people first saw this concept on Xiaomi’s Mi 11 ultra. However, from the render, the display on this new Huawei Dual – Screen Smartphone is much larger than that of the Mi 11 Ultra.
The body build of the new Huawei Dual–Screen device is quite good. The front display features a screen that is curved at the left and right edges. The phone also seems to have very thin bezels at the top and bottom of the phone. This gives the user a much wider viewing and streaming experience.
Aside from the renders, no more info has come to light about the Huawei Dual–Screen Smartphone. Based on the renders, our main interest lies on the rear display. The render also shows the quad camera setup of the device including a periscope for high-quality optical zoom.
Gizchina further explained that the patent description states that this additional screen can display various information. This information includes time, date, weather forecast, battery power and application notifications. The rear display can also be used as a viewfinder to help users take better selfies using the main camera instead of the front selfie camera.

Relevance of the Huawei Dual–Screen Smartphone
Many will question the relevance of a second screen at the back of a phone, while some will see this as a cool feature. However, there have been questions regather the presence of a dual selfie camera on the new Huawei device. Many have questioned why there is still a front camera since you can take cool selfies with the main camera with better graphics as well.
With this concept, taking out the front camera will provide a better and wider display experience. However, doing this will cause discomfort given that most users are used to the presence of a selfie camera and the ease of taking pictures with it.
This is a concept worth trying. Seeing how the public reacts to a phone without a selfie camera might be what the phone industry needs to spice things up.
