At the end of 2017 – iPhone X presentation It was not only controversial with the price: $ 999, which is the most expensive smartphone on the market by that time; but also a "Extension" from the screen that several have appeared: a notch. A year later, those who predicted the failure were wrong. And who laughs last, everyone laughs.
Now the notch is a star from Apple devices (which also includes the new iPhone X, Xs Max and Xr) and those working with Android. But what is the upgrade of this upper flange type? On the one hand, it is an aesthetic statement Face ID the safest face recognition smartphone, according to Tim Cook's Command. On the other hand, an elegant way to find sensors, front camera and speakerphone.
So the notch allows a "impressive" experience: Increase the surface of the phone screen and remove the top edge. But this kind of "u" does not like all the same, because there is a lack of who claims to be ugly and annoying. Imagine what it says Christopher Nolan to mention one of the purest film makers nowadays – to learn to find out that some of their films are seen with a notch …

Even months ago he was thrilled about Apple with a funny spot In terms of these manifestations, the South Korean giant disappeared into fashion and acknowledged that he did not want to go to oblivion, as happened with BlackBerry or Nokia. This week, in addition to introducing its seductive folding smartphones, Samsung announced four new screen types Infinity. And three of them have a notch: one in the "U" form at the center (the identical Essential Phone), other than "V" (without a rounded edge) and the other inside "O" shape (surrounds the front camera).
However, other competitors dare to experiment even more. New filtering Asus Zenfone 6 It showed a strange lateral inclination around the front lens. The screen covers the front of the entire mobile phone with hidden sensors. And the hole is also found in the patent submitted by LG, though located in the central part.
