Future iPhones may ditch the notch

LG's Upcoming Flagship Device Leaked in Concept Renders With an iPhone X-Like Notch LG G7 leaked renders show iPhone X-like notch, dual rear cameras

As shown by previous leaks, the R15 will feature a notch on top of the display, not very different from the one on the iPhone X. In case you were wondering what multitasking on the OPPO R15 would be like, you'll be glad to know that a video was posted on Chinese microblogging site Weibo today, showcasing some advanced multitasking features offered by the OPPO R15.

The notch, which contains the front camera, microphone, speaker and a few sensors, is only found on the Apple iPhone X. The odd design choice has not been well received by some but with the removal, the company would have to find somewhere else to place the camera and sensors.

According to new released concept renders, the phone to have the same design like the LG V30 smartphone, however the display has a new look and there is a small notch at the upper middle side of the display.

The big question, if a notch removal does happen, is where the cameras and sensors will be placed this time.

Native notch support means developers won't have to worry too much about their apps switching to full-screen mode on devices with and without cutouts at the top of the display - nearly everything should be handled automatically. The official solution given to get back the performance on older iPhones was to get the batteries changed on the affected handsets until Apple could release a software update to provide a toggle button for the feature.

In a note to investors on Monday, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson shared the results of a survey of more than 1,500 iPhone owners on why they chose not to upgrade to the iPhone X. Forty-four percent said their current iPhone was working fine so they didn't bother with an upgrade; 31 percent said that the iPhone X, which starts at $999, was too expensive; 8 percent said they wanted a larger screen; and 17 percent said "another reason".

So, if Apple is going to get rid of the notch and have a display that actually stretches edge-to-edge, how is going to include all of that front-facing equipment that's now on the iPhone X?

There aren't much details on the upgraded version of the iPhone X but we believe that the more affordable device will be the iPhone SE 2, which has been rumored for quite some time now. The three phones are said to be launching this fall.

If the design of the iPhone X is notcha cup of tea (sorry), a slew of incoming copy-cat designs from Android OEMs is sure to get your blood boiling. Should Apple drop it?
