Apple Might Discontinue Notch in 2019's iPhones

Apple Might Discontinue Notch in 2019's iPhones

Adding a notch to the iPhone X was necessary, in part, because of the phone's edge-to-edge organic LED screen.

Reuters/Stephen LamApple Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, Phil Schiller, introduces the iPhone X during a launch event in Cupertino, California, U.S. September 12, 2017.

The notch is a cutout at the top of the iPhone X's screen that houses cameras that power the phone's facial recognition technology, as well as sophisticated augmented reality sensors to enable popular features like Animoji.

At first, the iPhone X looked like a new direction for Apple with an nearly full-screen display, the first OLED Display on an iPhone and an all-new design with the most durable glass ever in a smartphone, front and back.

"Suppliers are interested in how Apple will be able to place receiver, front-camera, and Face ID feature and implement full-screen at the same time".

The iPhone X was a big experiment for Apple, and one that came with a few features that weren't received well. Some display industries think that Apple will either drill holes into OLED panels or use BM (Black Matrix) area within displays.

The future Apple iPhone 9 will be launched this year worldwide and the giant manufacturer hopes to successfully replace the iPhone 8 with a phone that really worths the money.

The latest reports also align with the previously leaked specifications of the LG Neo (earlier referred as LG G7). The bottom bezel does still look like a bit of a chin, but the top bezel has been shaved down to go right up to the edge.

On the front side, the LG Neo borrows the iPhone X-like notch with an nearly bezel-less edge-to-edge display.
