LG on Wednesday unveiled its new bezel-less flagship called G7 thinQ smartphone which looks like Apple’s iPhone X. Particularly, the top notch design of the phone almost looks like that. However, LG Denies that claim of Copying iPhone X’s Notched Design with the New G7 Smartphone.
Regarding of the fact, recently in an interview Hwang Jeong-hwan, the chief of LG’s mobile division said that “We planned the notch design before Apple. The display design may look similar to that of other smartphones, but boasts differentiated features.”
Not only LG but last year a number of companies like Asus, Huawei, and Samsung also unveiled bezel-less smartphones with the top-notch design but all designs are slightly different than each other. So, it must be a meaningless claim if any company say that others copied their phone design.
By the way, for the next year, Apple may ditch the top-notch design in its iPhones as recently in a questionable report from Korean website ET News recommended that Apple might remove the notch from iPhones starting with 2019 models.
