Apple’s upcoming iPhone X sequel may have new design with a smaller notch

  Apple’s upcoming iPhone X sequel may have new design with a smaller notch As it turns out, the notch on the iPhone X proved to be far less of a divisive issue than initially anticipated. That said, Apple is reportedly interested in making the notch even smaller on future iterations of the iPhone. According to a new investor note from analysts at Barclays (originally obtained via MacRumors), the TrueDepth camera system that powers Face ID will reportedly be smaller on upcoming iPhone models. Consequently, the notch itself will occupy a smaller footprint on the front of the device.

A notch housing the camera and other sensors has become the rage among Android makers, but you may not have to live with it, TechRadar reports. LG said earlier this year it was switching things up for its 2018 phone release schedule, and there is speculation that the G 7 could appear some time in June.

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.

But everyone at the event and around the world already knows that the high point of the show is already behind us. Tech journalists and bloggers will spend a ton of time in the coming weeks comparing Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ to dozens of different smartphones. Some comparisons will be more useful than others, but the most important one is fairly obvious. When the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are released on March 16th, they’ll be Samsung’s best smartphones ever. So it’s only right that we spend some time comparing them to Apple’s best smartphone ever, the iPhone X.

Of course, all of this information is based on leaked images and videos. We won't know for certain what the G7 actually looks like until its official unveiling, which could come in the next few months. LG said earlier this year it was switching things up for its 2018 phone release schedule, and there is speculation that the G7 could appear some time in June.

LG representatives didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.
