IPhone X Plus Rumored to Arrive This Year

"Some display industries think that Apple will either drill holes into OLED panels or use BM (Black Matrix) area within displays".

The iPhone X was a big experiment for Apple, and one that came with a few features that weren't received well. Hence, the ultimate full experience that Apple is reportedly planning for its 2019 iPhone may also inspire Android smartphone makers to launch similar looking phones. However, it could be Apple will opt for a much simpler solution: a combination of a slightly thicker screen bezel and a reduction in size of the current notch-bound components.

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. Removing the notch does not mean Apple to drop the Face ID or front camera, the company is planning to keep both the Face ID as well as the front camera but the placement is yet to be known.

The report says Apple will still include its facial recognition technology, Face ID, in future models, which means those sensors will still have to be on the front of the device.

Some users called the notch "bad design" or, as one reviewer called it, 'a visually disgusting element'.

The phone in question is seen sporting a full-screen display. It is reminiscent of an older Android phone that is wading through the mass of apps with difficulty.

The phone is nearly entirely bezel-free, except for some very thin borders around the edges of the phone.

On the front side, the LG Neo borrows the iPhone X-like notch with an nearly bezel-less edge-to-edge display.

"Suppliers are interested in how Apple will be able to place receiver, front-camera, and Face ID feature and implement full-screen at the same time", the report says.

Apple has maintained a reputation for slowly bringing design changes to its iPhones, but the iPhone X was a major disruption. It is heard that OLED models will be available in 5.85-inch display and 6.46-inch display while a LCD model will be available only in 6.04-inch model.
