 WIPOOppo has patented some display features that would integrate with the punch hole camera. The two patents were published January 18 and 22 (via LetsGoDigital) on the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) showing how the in-display camera could become an element of the app.

One of the patents (above) depicts rows of Android apps positioned across the top of the display, with the camera app covering the front-facing camera at the top left. With the software app placed here, the app’s lens would overlap with the physical camera lens, creating the illusion that they’re one and the same. Seemingly, the camera app would always remain in position even when swiping to another homepage (where you might expect a different app to replace it).
