5 ways the iPhone X could be better

  5 ways the iPhone X could be better With about seven months to go until Apple unveils its new 2018 iPhone lineup, it seems like we shouldn't be talking about the company's iPhone X successors right now. According to Kuo, Apple plans to release not two but three new iPhone models this coming September. One will be a proper sequel to the current 5.8-inch OLED iPhone X, and the second will reportedly be a larger Plus version with a 6.5-inch OLED screen. Then there will supposedly be a third new iPhone model that features a 6.1-inch LCD display with lower resolution, and it’ll apparently cost less that Apple’s OLED iPhones.

If you've got your eye on LG's new phone but aren't a fan of its much-rumored iPhone X-like notch, this might please you: It appears to be optional.

Ever since Apple released its iPhone X in November with a black notch above the screen that houses the phone's front-facing camera and other sensors, a gaggle of Android phone makers has been rumored to be adopting the design. LG is expected to join the fray with its new phone -- likely to be called the G7.

But the folks at TechRadar have been tipped off to a vanishing act performed by the notch. According to a video they reviewed, the feature can apparently be turned off through the handset's software settings, allowing you to hide it behind a consistent screen bezel.
