Now, leaving aside who did what 1st and who is copying who. As that argument will go around and around with no winners. I think we can all agree the "Notch" concept, which gives users more screen space than they otherwise would have is here to stay. Now, let me just say that, I think it would be an excellent idea for Apple to just put in the option of either disabling, or hiding the notch to some extent to keep people who do not like this new design happy. It won't hurt anyone to give the user the simple option, as if being given in some of the latest Android phones. So, back to my thread title. Do you think it's 100% guaranteed the width of the notch on future iphones will gradually get smaller and smaller over the forthcoming years? Not perhaps every single year, but certainly every 2 years or so, it will shrink? I'm aware Apple has some extra sensors in this notch area, so, for "Notch Version 1" from Apple they probably had to play it safe, and allow plenty of black space for these sensors. That said, it's generally safe to think that, these sensors will, be able to be made physically smaller, packed closer together, even combined together perhaps? Which would then allow the notch width to reduce. I will say (and extra sensor space aside) I do very much prefer the width of the notch of other phones. Giving more space for information either side, and less of a compromise. Anyone disagree with any of this? Some visual examples for comparison.
