OnePlus has recently filed a new patent that will help the camera phone manufacturer take another step towards creating a perfectly seamless edge-to-edge display. This new patent is for a tiny selfie camera that is capable of being housed in the bezel – the black border that sits around the front display.

Over the past few years, many camera phone manufacturers have been trying to reduce the size of the bezel in order to maximize the size of the display. This new patent could potentially mean a OnePlus phone could have a low profile bezel while still being able to accommodate a selfie camera.
