Huawei has recently filed a patent for a high-end smartphone that will not only seemingly include an under-screen camera, but will also feature an innovative bezel display at the top of the phone. 

Manufacturers have traditionally sought to reduce the size of camera phone bezels so that the screen takes up as much space on the phone as possible. However, rather than erasing the bezel completely, Huawei seems to be trying a different strategy. Rather than being a blank black, the bezel on this phone will display information, such as the time, battery percentage and connectivity information.
