Looks fantastic, the notch is completely unnoticeable with black background on status bar.
Also, makes it symmetrical with the chin.
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2018haha, samsung and sony live in the past as always.notch looks beautifulWhat ever you're drinking pass it over here because I need it. Almost every phone will look the same this year except Samsung
Would have been better off with the G6 design. So far Samsung is the only smart one.
Wait... Isn't this the S8?
Ilyia, 07 Mar 2018Hope they Change the camera from g6... Frontfacing camera on G6 and v30 is GARBAGEYeah Right !!!
Looks like S9 and Xperia flagships are only ones that do not have notches. All androids will have a notch this year .. whether apple's design is good or bad .. they don't care. SHAME !!
Welp...I guess I can rule out LG (since, according to the article, this may replace the V-series). Now to wait and see if OnePlus listened to the crowd that hated that one prototype and if ZTE Axon 9 carries all the bands needed for the U.S. I wouldn't rule out the Pixel 3 XL. If Google were smart with their next flagships, I'll consider them.
The phone looks pretty cool, but the notch destroys it
xiaomi mi5s plus back with the flash reversed...
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2018 The V30 is too big. I had hoped that the G7 wouldn't be, but, this render looks just like a V... morehave you even seen V30 and G6 side by side? There is hardly any difference in size and V30 has bigger screen
Whackcar, 07 Mar 2018Nah, not gonna happen. Unfortunately, a phone is no longer considered premium if it doesn't ha... morePhone reviewers, that's who I blame. Seen so many going on about "premium feeling glass design". My Lumia 920 felt premium. Sturdy as hell, and launched with more features than a lot of the Androids of today. Some reviewers would suggest a glass hammer felt "premium', despite being as much use as a chocolate fire guard.
Jase PM, 07 Mar 2018Especially if you're stuck in 2013...Its sad that in 2013 they actually supplied useful technology with the phones vs. 2018 where it was all removed.

Notch again. Oh no dont copy apple please
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2018I also caused you to take time out of your day to complain on my comment ^_^ . You're funny. I do like to laugh.
And now lg is jumping in the notchy wagon, what a pity, they can not sell enough phones, so they decide to be
a crapple follower, what a shame!
I think LG should have stuck on with their invention of secondary display strip for better shake. That could have been useful than this crappy notch.
LG wont realize that it has written some perfect answer (secondary display strip) but changed mind copying Apple (notch) thinking later is more appealing to users.. but the reality is not! (Result: LG wasted their innovation and not marks awarded too.)
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2018You missed my part about palm rejection. Bezels are not needed anymore.
As for protecting t... moreNotch looks gross in my opinion. Still love the minimum top and bottom bezel of my S8. Say what you will about the bezels being useless but the seamless transition from the black OLED to the black (barely there bezel) is beautiful. The seamless line along the top of the screen is normal.
What's not normal is having a cutout (notch) in the top line breaking up the fluidity of the display. Notches are SHIT, no if's, and's or buts about it.
And as for the edge display, I think it makes the phone look sleek and sexy as fuck!
But these are my opinions and you are free to think as you wish, even though your wrong.
whooh...looking gorgeous LG...
i'm very excited to see real device..
