An Innovation in a product is really needed so that in addition can be a hallmark of the company, also useful to win the market. As in Smartphones, especially on the screen, some unique innovations have been made to reach more markets or to create a new trend unintentionally.

Wahyunanda K. P., Tekno Kompas - After the iPhone X was released last November 2017, Android-based mobile phone vendors trickle to trace the characteristics of Apple's flagship. Especially if not "notch" aka the screen frame that jutted into the inside of the screen on the top, like a bangs hair. The design of bangs screens rampant a year later on Android phones in various classes, ranging from mid-range to high-end. Although its presence may be considered disturbing, bangs are required as a front camera and earpiece.

So, until when will notch design trends persist? Some Android phone manufacturers have started looking for other innovations to keep zooming in the ratio of the screen to the body without having to leave / make notch. Oppo for example, recently released a new flagship phone after a vacuum up to four years old. The face of the device named Find X is filled 6.4-inch screen with a ratio of 93.8% versus the body.

Notch is removed from Find X, while the front camera (along with the rear camera) is hidden through a technology dubbed "Stealth 3D Camera". Front and rear camera Oppo Find X is stored in a special module that will enter into the body of the phone when not in use.

But before Oppo, another Chinese manufacturer from China, Vivo, has also slashed bangs from its top smartpone screen called Nex. Like Oppo Find X, Vivo Nex hides the front camera inside the phone body. The difference is, Nex camera module is smaller because it only loads the camera selfie, while the main camera remains left pinned on the back.

Creating hidden cameras is just one of the ways that smartphone manufacturers navigate to continue widening the screen and getting rid of the notch section. One of the latest news says that Huawei is preparing a new high-end device that has a 6.3-inch screen with no notch. Rumors, instead of placing the front camera on a fringe or hidden module, the flagship candidate will apply a new style of "holes" at the top of the display panel. Other components such as proximity sensors are moved to the upper frame which is also thin.

From the outstanding illustrations, as compiled by KompasTekno from Mashable on Sunday, July 22, 2018, "holes" on the screen of the device make the front camera look like "acne". The shape is much smaller than the bangs owned by iPhone X and other Android devices so far, but it still perched on top of the screen.

Even if later actually manifest in the form of finished products, Huawei's candidate flagship looks are still rumored it might be similar to Essential Phone works of Android Founder Andy Rubin. Huawei reportedly will introduce the phone in question in the final quarter of 2018 as one model of the Mate series smartphone.

If the above rumors are true, then the evolution of the smartphone screen will continue to roll to widen the diagonal extent. Starting from the aspect ratio changes to be more elongated, bangs, hidden cameras, until maybe later holes or acne. What do you think will last the longest?
