  • If samsung is the one who supplies the display to apple,then why dont theyy implement it in their phones

    • Tru cause samsung will make it flexible

    • Ohhhok thanksss

    • They curve the sides so if they bent the bottom the screen would bend onto itself

  • How does the iPhone XR not have a chin since it doesn’t have a OLED display.

  • Androids can remove the chin. By fattening the side bezels. Exactly what Apple really did. Side bezels are easy to shrink and android manufacturers like to do it because they market specs, and not the entire packaged product like Apple does. So looks/symmetry isnt as vital as just having a 1% higher STB ratio. Which is a real shame because i am into androids as an ecosystem but they are just all that tiny bit uglier than Apple. Now granted this may have not completely been the case when this video released but with the Note 10 for example it certainly is. The bezels there are absurdly small and adding side bezels to match the top and bottom wouldnt hurt the user experience at all and would make a phone look that much more beautiful. Not saying its an ugly phone, i do prefer the punch hole camera to the side instead of the center, and more symmetrical bezels, of course.

    • I think it does, the chin on the s10 and IPhone X are very similar. I can’t tell which one has the larger chin by looking at them.

  • Why don’t they just have the connector be only the copper teeth that face down and connect into the motherboard. No wires just the display and the connector attaching to the motherboard. Seems logical in the image in my brain.

  • I prefer the notch over having moving parts, like hidden self cams. I like a mostly screen phone, but not when the screen curves all the way around the edges. I hate that.

  • This would not be TOTALLY bezel-less, but how about if we had everything in one notch at the bottom? The fingerprint reader, the front camera, the Home button...

  • Yeah, the "innovative", "expensive" and "new design": made and made possible by samsung, just like literaly every other thing the boring, complicit and boutique brand buy out to bring to you. All of which is vacuum sealed (TM) "innovation" bought and sold on for 5× its actual value from a Frankenstein of different components from various brands. Besides, how can you call a phone 'bezel-less ' with A) with bezels still and B) with something like a fucking grand Canyon notch and huge size bezels? These retarded crApple dickriders ignore the fact the iphone x has the biggest side bezels plus a notch, but then quickly backpedal on "b U t T hE C h iN". I mean, that's ignoring samsung, who was the first to make curved screens possible, full stop, to which apple later tried copying the essence of with 2.5d glass, but the fact now is they have now left apple in the dust with actual innovation like foldable phone (a industry first, iphone 6 bendgate omitted) is the epitome of the point. The s10 chin is negligible, without bumping into the logical and logistical issues of 3 curved edges on a device, all while achieving a record setting higher screen to body ratio and achieving another industry flagship first with punchhole OLED on a viable mass-market scale, especially now with the note 10, love it or hate it. I just love how the only way to have made this possible was through extortion and downright lies, yet people think crApple is a true contender. The only reasonable, practical phone they made was the Xr (retard edition) that has huge chin and side bezels, coupled with a inferior sub-1080p, LCD screen. All this is obviously ignoring the fact that even at the iphone X launch they were trying to sell you the sane stale, recycled, unchwnged iphone 6 design display and monstrous bezels with LCD, all while the "new one" had a smaller screen with less usable real estate with the notch. Question is idk why people regard apple as anything else but their own thing, because judging by the now outdated, stale notch design same bezels, and pretty much everything else, only with a camera tumour, it's the same old shit. It really speaks a lot when their older products are more profitable and better selling, but the industry is yet again quick to forget that they sold the same phone for 4 years in a row with tiny, barely justifiable gimmicks.

    • Grand Admiral Thrawn true haha, let’s see how long it takes the rest of the android phones to get chins the size of the iPhones and Current Samsung phones.

      Darius PattersonDarius Patterson13 gün önce
    • Damn, never thought about that this way 😮that 0,2mm is definitely a huge difference, which makes Note10+’s chin big as some old school Xperia . But with all this bullshit aside, check phoneArena visual comparison, Note10+ has smaller chin than any other iPhone. Probably that 3,9 vs 4,1 is just about the size of the black bar on glass. That would mean Note has slimmer metal band on bottom, so still if you stack them side by side, Note’s screen will get closer to the bottom of device

      FyreFyreAylar önce
  • Since all of them have a chin anyways why don't they just put the front camera in there and make the orientation sensor to work on all sides. So you can keep the phone upside down and take the photos, or else just make the controls in camera in such a way that you can control it upside down?.... rather than all those moving parts.

    • The iPhone XR has a 4mm chin, it just looks small because the bezel around it is also 4mm. Of course it's impressive, but there are a lot phones having a smaller chin, for example: S10, Note10, OnePlus 6T - 7 Pro, Oppo Reno, Vivo V15 Pro, Redmi K20, Huawei P30, Xiaomi Mi 9, .... I can do this all day. In my opinion, the big bezel around the iPhone XR looks great when you see it in a video, but in real life it's disgusting.
