Reported by Android Authority way back in December 2017 https://www.androidauthority.com/iphone-x-notch-coming-android-phones-816563/
Lol love the fans quiet about notches now. They didn't believe the earlier report that manufacturers would begin emulating iPhone's notch, and will deny it now.
Most compact phone after Samsung S4
It's funny the comment's abou the new phones. The Iphone wasn't the first brand with that kind of Screen. The Iphone just followed others brands and improve the ratio. People keep complaint about android phones being copy Apple but that isn't true. If we look to the olders Iphones models, they don't showed any kind of improvement.
Laia, 19 Feb 2018It'll depend of the sales. if people don't buy phones with notch or the proportion of sales of... moreHow long will you keep away from notches? In next few years notches will increase and people upgrading or buying their first phone will have no choice besides phones with notch we can only hope we get more under display technology like under display selfie cam, proximity sensor etc or atleast notches become smaller
yayyy long live the notch
Not every move from Apple is always right and/or good.
We can have bezel on top while have the bottom nearly small bezels for software keys/gestures. The problem with most of the big brands today is that they just became unimaginative.
I'm holding my breath for LG, HTC, Sony, or someone else to change the mood of our situation.
the notch trend xDD
The essential phone had a respectable notch only for the camera which was actually convenient. But since Apple made that huge notch i guess every manufacter wants to do it too.
Me, i rather have a bit more bezels than having a ridiculous notch. Thank god i went with the oneplus 5T before it's out of stock..
AnyyBunny, 19 Feb 2018Will never buy this phone.Who cares?
The official Zenfone 5 leaks from ASUS is not have notch like that, look here.
MichaelHB, 19 Feb 2018I remember many fandroids Apple haters, saying never popular oems will follow "THE IPHONE X NO... moreSamsung, Sony, LG and Huawei still got headphone jack on most of their smartphones though.
Did Apple copy dual camera from HTC, LG and Huawei?
sadh, 19 Feb 2018Yes, Apple is not the first one using notch in the phone, but why so many upcoming phones have... moreTV wont change because of cell phones.
That is why stuff is not made 18:9, because they are made for tv.
Although I think and seems on the contrary, but I hope that Asus (& all others if so?) won't jump on the "hype train of notches". Hopefully NOT!????????...
LG superfan, 19 Feb 2018Maybe we should just accept the fact THE NOTCH is future of smartphones even google is support... moreIt'll depend of the sales. if people don't buy phones with notch or the proportion of sales of phones without notch is clearly superior, only a minority of models will have notch or disappear.
