If the phone could flip from the back outward you could get a super tall display too, 38:9 aspect ratio is the new future :p
Or even under screen cameras if that is possible. Both of these would be another solution
The final solution is a smaller, lower res, lower power display on the back (maybe epaper-like). Whose only purpose is as a selfie viewfinder (unless power consumption is low enough for always on use).
Then you only need one camera, the main one.
Furthermore, who actually needs a fingerprint scanner, whether built into the screen or otherwise? An NFC ring would be a great "biometric" alternative.
I doubt the overall BOM would be much different, phones could be completely bezelless, more reliable (popup cameras?? No thanks!), and easier to use.
Skype video calls.
What use is a loud speaker? (end sarcasm)
Am i the only one bothered by the fact they are just killing smartphones as media consumption devices?
Notches kills any videos.
All videos are 16:9, but they are doing 18:9 or higher, essentially killing half the screen when watching videos, just for the sake of having more inches in their advertisement.
One of the greatest smartphone features of all time is to be able to watch videos, clips and movies in a portable device, and they are essentially killing this feature. I guess most people uses their device for facebook and whatsapp nowadays and donÂ’t care about media content.
Anonymous, 21 Jul 2018MirrorLike on the first cameraphones? I think the selfie generation wouldn't be happy with that. :-)
I'm happy manufacturers are trying new things and differentiating their models. Smartphone design had been so stagnant for so long. Notches? Sure. Holes? Why not. Pop-ups? Worth a shot. Rotating lens or reflector? Yes please! Same-old-bezeled-slab? Keep those coming too. 'Gamer' phones? Fugly and welcome!
Espenegger72, 20 Jul 2018Just don't understand the need of the front camera. I never ever use it. Mate 9.Agreed, I'd happily live without a front camera if it reduced the price/accommodated a larger battery.

Anonymous, 20 Jul 2018Or don't...there's a billion really good phones out there without it you know...Man yes old phones with no more updates or soon no more.
In present era notch is everywhere and it will continue to spread like poison or disease, cancer etc. Start loving notch.
CptPower, 20 Jul 2018Well and many people thought that the NOTCH IS A REALLY BAD. As founder of one plus company ... moreOr don't...there's a billion really good phones out there without it you know...
Well and many people thought that the NOTCH IS A REALLY BAD.
As founder of one plus company said: Start loving notch :-)
Why not move it to the right or left side. Seems worse in the middle.. at least move it to and edge so you can get the most from video play back and viewing pictures..
AnonD-594740, 20 Jul 2018So... a essential phone?What about it
Ash, 20 Jul 2018Firstly there is no need for a 100% stb ratio.
Secondly if they want to achieve this then I w... moreThere is a great need for 100% StB ratio. Phone sizes have peaked. Only way to make the screen bigger is by killing as much bezel as possible (and eventually foldable screens but them too need the bezels to have gone already)
Only thing troubling with the notch (great compromise for the time being) is that it instigated something dark in people, their inner Luddite.
