HaHaHa!!!!! everybody HATED that notch on the screen! Can you tell me WHY phones construtors is copying AGAIN? hahaha its so funny!
Much prefer this to s8/s9 with it actually having sides to hold onto. and love LG for their ultra wide angle cameras.
Calm down everyone. This is either a cancelled device or fake altogether. I know LG well enough to know they wouldn't actually make a move to piss of their fanbase. There will not be any notches on LG phones. Chill out!

I'm bringing this up to refute your statements here. You got me thinking about copy cat business practices as a whole.
I am reading and cant believe that managers and designers in many companies are so STUPID!
who likes the notch?
is it possible that everywhere are idiots who are running these big companies?
who approves these decisions?
in last 5 years I didn't see not even one design that covers all (long battery life, good HW inside, beauty of device, ergonomic, etc.... ). In each phone, in each design, something is missing..... unbelievable!
FAK the Notch!
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2018... that (still) doesn't mean its a "good" idea!Amazing how we used to defend our individuality and mock followers with the saying: "If I jump of a cliff would you jump after me?" Yet handset manufacturers are exactly doing that! Jumping of the cliff of mediocrity.
It seems like they are scrapping a fine device for a worse one. This one almost came out with an OLED screen, which would save the series. The new one will have an LCD..
The only thing is Im really not a fan of LGs camera setup.
kupfernigk, 01 Mar 2018Not for VR it isn't. ... as if people walk around with vr-helmets on their heads all day long?
Smartphone VR is used very little and mostly just to show off to family and friends. Unlike PC based VR which used for prolonged periods and in private.
I, myself, couldn't care less about VR on a bloody PHONE! I want full 2-way callrecording, loud loudspeakers (yes I'm an old deaf nitwit, so what!) and long battery life. And good reception everywhere (even in the little room, goddammit!)
Seriously, who even uses VR on a phone these days? A HTC Vive or Oculus Rift are way more fun. And in 2018 are more and better PC based VR-goodies on their way (both in hardware and software).
Is there any patent on the iPhone x symmetrical design with a notch? Why either ASUS Zenfone 5 & LG G7 must be with an ugly thick chin?
cybermoja, 01 Mar 2018What is this notch trend stupidity. It's a lazy and thoughtless design.Indeed.
First we had the ridiculous elongated screens that ere useless for playing video's, screencasting to TV and noty even utilized by the onboard (video-)camera's
And now we have a stupid cut-out at the top blocking halve the top? Why use elongated screens if they're blocking out half the top with some stupid notch? Might as well keep the screen at 16:9 and use proper top and bottom bezel.
Not to mention these phones can't be used single handedly. Just try to drag down the notification list or shortcut-buttons shade with your thumb.
Ergonomics go out the windows just as common sense! We're doomed!
cybermoja, 01 Mar 2018What is this notch trend stupidity. It's a lazy and thoughtless design.Actually, LG invented it with the V10, which had a small additional display at the top using otherwise empty space. Apple copied the idea, only a bit more tidily. Now Asus has copied Apple but with less wasted space and a more aesthetic notch. So LG is merely doing a logical extension of their own idea.
Im not exactly sure why even big name companies are copying that ugly notch
