Bring back bezels, top and bottom, large enough but not bigger than actually needed, for a good front facing camera and all necessary sensors and good front facing stereo speakers!
I couldn't give a monkeys about selfies, never use them, wish they could make phones for us people and knock 100 £/$/Â€ off the price.
Exciting for spy shots I guess, best would be just removed it entirely or hide it in a frame, this is not a good solution to hide it under display
the beautification filter SO overdone, it's hard to judge the quality. seriously.
it's not only fake, it just looks bad.

IP69K is certified if it survived and still work from water pressure like a Fire Hose if I recall correctly. IP67 - IP68 is all about how deep the phone can still work underwater without water seeping inside. It can be useful for people who lost their iPhones on their nature date like rowing the boat through the rivers then someone found a phone that has been submerged for a year and it still work.

If apple phone lasted 4 meters under water, it'd ip69 or something,not 68. As long as device complies with requisite norms for rating, submersion in water does not matter. It's not a damn submarine

It is cheaper, cleaner and most important, IT WORKS FINE, this zero bezels al around is just plain silly and dumb, makes the user hold the phone in uncomfortable manners, more to it when in landscape, that's it
[deleted post]That's Apple's style. They rather let the rest innovate while Apple be like "If you can do it, I can do it better". Since then, their cameras are balanced and topnotch, their IP68 can last till 4 meters while the rest are stuck at 1.5m to 2m, software calibrations are the best overall, FaceID being better than conventional 2D face scanners and Samsung's Iris scanners, etc.
Now that Oppo showed that tech off, Apple can do it better without compromising the resolution of the entire display. Transparent OLEDs are like One-Way mirrors where you're watching the content, the other side is blank and visible to see what's behind.
Now this is something that i will wait for the next mainstream manufacture to do.

We will soon want "solid like" holographic screens like those Sci-Fi media like Star Trek and Star Wars.
Side Topic, the camera should be in the middle of the display so we can fix the problem of where we look for the selfie. Should we be looking at the camera or the display?

But I'm fine with a bezel. It can house biometrics, stereo speakers, notification LEDs... Unfortunately looks matter more than function these days...
The idea of a under display camera is far from exciting and is some straight up 1984 BS, I can't believe people actually want this.
THIS needs to happen as fast as possible.
Down with the damned unsightly notches/cut-outs/punch-holes/sliders/pop-ups and all the workarounds and beating 'round the bushes.
Under-screen all the way!!!
Love the Community, 10 Dec 2019Apple, you got 8 months. Please grab Oppo, Xiaomi and Huawei's technology for the iPhone 12. G... moreNope, not gonna happen. It's Apple, selling for profit, not innovation.
Yay for finally see a working prototype of the tech, nay for the portless design. All those improvements to wired connectivity (from USB type-B to microUSB to type-C/Thunderbolt) are wasted. Maybe 5G is quick enough for data transfer, but still relies on signal coverage. Hope that portless design is just for the prototype and won't make it to the released product.
