Thanks for your comment, David.

But keep in mind that Apple possesses other technology to hide tiny cameras in with pixels too. Check out Apple's older patent below. You might find it interesting.

At first glance, I thought it was a brilliant idea to have something like that. A camera hidden behind the center of a LCD display and doing FaceTime will be much better. However, the camera could not work with FaceTime since the camera needs to show up by hiding display pixels in front of it. Therefore, camera hidden at the center of the display is impossible to work with FaceTime. It could still work if it is hidden at the top center behind the display. Well, I guess it is still better than what we have right now and I love the idea that finger print scanner behind the display although I love the rumours about finger print scanner hidden behind the Home button.
