Apple may junk this ‘most-copied’ iPhone design

This post was originally published on this site

NEW DELHI: Apple last year took the smartphone industry by storm with the unveiling of its tenth-anniversary iPhone, iPhone X. The smartphone sports a notch at the top of its screen. The feature now seems to have become a rage among Android smartphone makers. Leaks suggest many of the upcoming Android smartphones to feature notch. In fact, search giant Google too is adopting the ‘Display Cutout’ support as revealed by the recently-announced Android P Developer Preview 1. Some Android with the ‘famed notch’ have also hit the market.

Some Android flagships too are rumoured to sport this ‘notch’ design. Since Apple is known to keep itself away from mainstream, a new found patent indicates that the company may be going back to the old, notch-less screen design.

As found on the USPTO (US Patent and Trademark Office) website, the patents suggest Apple to be working on an iPhone handset without a cut out on top for the speaker, front camera and other set of sensors. This also falls in line with the recent rumours indicating that the iPhone handsets in 2019 will be completely ditching the notch.

The particular patent, as mentioned by Digital Trends, is a refinement of the previous patents and is in relation to displays with openings between pixels for sensors, something that may help the notch to disappear. Since these openings will be in between the pixels, it will be too small to see from bare eyes. This also means that the sensors may be placed on the display itself.

Apple, last year, adopted the controversial ‘notch’ design with its iPhone X and is expected to launch three new smartphones this year, all with the same design.

Google too has brought a similar support in its Android P. “Now apps can take full advantage of the latest device screens with fullscreen content. We’ve added display cutout into the platform, along with APIs that you can use to manage how your content is displayed,” said the company in its blog post.
