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.

Several upcoming smartphones like Huawei P20 and OnePlus 6 are also embracing the iPhone notch. The source claims that Apple may embed the front-facing camera and Face ID sensors under the display of the 2019 iPhone.

According to a report on Technobuffalo, the image of LG G7 (Neo) shows a notch on the top of the display of the smartphone.

"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 height and width of this notch seems less than that on the iPhone X though.

Ideas being thrown around include drilling sensor holes in the display, a design Samsung already filed a patent for, and the use of Black Matrix areas within the display.

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

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

A number of Android phone manufacturers have adopted the notch.

That's partly why many smartphone makers have since emulated the notch in their own devices.

Earlier, the LG G7 (Neo) was spotted in a hands-on video by Israeli publication Ynet at MWC 2018. A very thin bezel runs at the bottom while it appears purely bezel-less from the top.

Even though the iPhone X remains the most popular model within the company's iPhone line-up, there have been reports that Apple in recent weeks has reduced iPhone X orders due to lower than anticipated demand.

The Apple iPhone X "notch" fever is spreading like fire in a jungle, with most of the smartphone brands announcing some flagship of the other with a "notch" on the device.

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

Supply chain sources told the Korean site ETNews that Apple was exploring different ways to implement the TrueDepth camera system and other sensors with a truly full-screen smartphone.
