It seems like Oppo is emphasizing on EU and North America more today when it announced the new flagship called Find X before its official revealing in China on June 29. But that’s not the reason why our attention is Oppo Find X. It is the all screen and no notch design that drew us to it. Sadly, there’s nothing revolutionary in achieving this true edge-to-edge display. There’s no camera hidden behind the display. Well, technically, it has, but not in the way you thought it is.

ASUS has done it. So did OnePlus, Vivo, LG, Huawei and a bunch of others. And now, it looks like search giant Google’s next flagship smartphone will have it too. Yes.

LG G7 Has ThinQ AI And Does Indeed Has The iPhone X Notch Up Top

So, here it is, the LG G7. What can we say? It looks so iPhone X. It even has a glass back and has a button-less front, just like the X. Sorry to say that Apple is still the leader in designs. How else do you explain the notch trend? Granted, Apple was not first; it was Essential Phone that started it, but you have to admit that it was Apple that makes it a “trendy” thing.

Huawei P20 Pro Is Like An iPhone X With A Three Camera System

Behold the future of smartphone is… iPhone X lookalike with the notch. Yup. Following Vivo, ASUS and the lot, Huawei is in it too with its new P20 and P20 Pro smartphones. Oh mine. I wonder how many acid tongue Android loyalists have spewed hate on the notch, but look what we have here. Notch on almost all the new phones we have seen thus far.
