Apple's implementation of the notch in iPhone X was praiseworthy on numerous counts both critically and commercially.

More than a third of the respondents said that the iPhone X, which starts at $999, is too expensive. Apple wanted to build a bezel-less smartphone, but it couldn't figure out how to hide the front camera, dot projector, infra-red sensor, speaker, microphone, ambient light sensor, and the proximity sensor. It is interesting from a standpoint that Apple is looking for another strategy that will differentiate itself when Chinese Smartphone manufacturers are imitating and applying notch design to their new Smartphones.

"According to Apple news site PED3.0, Michael Olson, a senior researcher with Piper Jaffray found that 44 per cent people who didn't upgrade said that they baulked at the idea because their current "iPhone works fine", Fortune reported.

At first, the iPhone X looked like a new direction for Apple with an nearly full-screen display, the first OLED Display on an iPhone and an all-new design with the most durable glass ever in a smartphone, front and back. Some display industries think that Apple will either drill holes into OLED panels or use BM (Black Matrix) area within displays.

iPhone 9 is to be sold by Apple at a surprisingly good price compared to iPhone 8, and customers will have a very pleasant surprise. Share us your views by posting your comments below.

Earlier, the LG G7 (Neo) was spotted in a hands-on video by Israeli publication Ynet at MWC 2018.

The phone is nearly entirely bezel-free, except for some very thin borders around the edges of the phone.

Users would be able to decide whether images take up the full width and length of the display, or to restrict images with a small bezel at the top and bottom of the front screen. The company will reportedly introduce the new design with iPhone 11 next year. The recently unveiled ASUS ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5Z look quite similar to the iPhone X. Also, the upcoming phones like Huawei P20, P20 Pro, P20 Lite, OPPO R15, OPPO R15 Dream Mirror and OnePlus 6 are also expected to arrive with notch design.

Supply chain sources told the Korean site ETNews that Apple was exploring different ways to implement the TrueDepth camera system and other sensors with a truly full-screen smartphone.
