LG's flagship is a serious iPhone X lookalike

11 March 2018

The source claims that Apple may embed the front-facing camera and Face ID sensors under the display of the 2019 iPhone. "It seems that Apple is planning to implement full-screen that is more complete to its new iPhones". Industry sources told ETNews that the company is now having discussions with relevant firms for this new design.

As far as the iPhone screens are concerned, they would completely be filled in the front.

Specifications such as size, resolution, and shape of a new display have not been confirmed yet.

However, there aren't any other details available about how Apple will tuck in all the sensors now seen on the iPhone X notch which includes front-facing camera, separate infrared camera to deploy FaceID, microphone, speaker, proximity sensor, dot projector, flood illuminator and ambient light sensor.

Additionally, MacRumors also notes both the flex cables seen in the photos and the part numbers align with existing formats "typically used by Apple" while "The rear design of the part is also very similar but not identical to the iPhone X display assembly".

The iPhone 9 will be cheaper than the iPhone X, and that's because it will not have a glass casing, wireless charging, dual camera, stainless steel structure, and, apparently, not even a 3D Touch under the screen.

As said before, LG G7's main highlight is the notch that seats atop the display to array front-camera along with other sensors. By removing the notch, the 2019 iPhone will be able to deliver ultimate full screen experience. Or by, er, drilling holes into it.

Apple first introduced the notch in the 10th anniversary iPhone X last September, which turned heads due to its wallet-busting $999 (£999) price tag. However, many Chinese smartphone makers have adopted the design to use it as a selling point.

However, rumours are rife LG and OnePlus are also planning to implement similar designs with their 2017 flagships.

When Apple had launched the iPhone X as its first OLED iPhone past year, critics were skeptical about its market reception since it includes an obtrusive notch.

According to the report, the iPhone X Plus is just one of the three new iPhones that are set to arrive this year.
