    CptPower, 28 Nov 2018Man there were phone s with notch before apple X got one. ... moreI clearly remember being fed up with the iPhone rumors before the Essential phone was even announced. Look at this source for example -

    https://finance.yahoo.com/news/apple-iphone-8-ru­mors-news-200007174.html

    We were kinda sure at that point that new iPhone would have Oled, 3d sensing technology and all screen phone. These rumors were from a reliable source. How can you say that Apple copied Essential? Their notch design were worlds apart anyway.

    My point is that it's wrong to say Apple copied Essential.

      That hole is ugly.
      Wonder how to get mess from there or mud it will be dissaster.
      And the basic public wont spot that phone just like the accident i bet someone from a company made that photo in public.
      I just cant believe on accidental shots.

        Sonu4678, 27 Nov 2018What do you mean by first "in Innovation"? These brands us... moreMan there were phone s with notch before apple X got one.
        Sharp or Essential ones had them.
        Dunno what you talking about.
        And if chinese companies copy then apple copied Notch too.
        Like kryocera made first foldable phone back in 2011 and now all trying to make a foldable phone saying we are the first.
        Its a lie.

Other Chinese phone manufacturing companies have copied the same notch to exact specifications for no reason except to be the same as Apple.
              Apple houses all their sensors behind the notch including their revolutionary Face id sensors. When the technology exists to house the sensors elsewhere or integrate within the screen without losing actual screen space i'm sure it will then be done.
              By the way, plural of sheep is still sheep and you seem to follow that pattern to a tee.

                Not yet launch. Somebody put a sticker on screen.

                  Anonymous, 27 Nov 2018Who said it will block notifications? Even largest notches ... moreKnowing Huawei, that "optimisation" will be half-arsed at best. Glitchy and hopefully working properly in half the cases.

Even largest notches ... moreWhat I meant was left is were notification icons are so it will odd having them is center and by blocking I meant limiting the number of icon on status bar normally its 5-7 with big notch you get less

                          what is that person holding behind the blown up shot of the phone? that looks like some god awful device

Just copy design from whatever the rumors of future phone you hear. Get insider infos from suppliers what others are doing. Buy parts, assembled and sell it before the company with the original idea sell theirs. Pure innovation. Nothing illegal here.
