lets hope it will be a round area of the screen and not square, because if not will look worse then the punch hole

How will you be able to cover the camera? Hopefully, when it's on, a feint ring will appear around the virtual lens area. That way, you can put your finger over it if you have yet to apply blush and lipstick.

SpiritWolf, 20 Nov 2020Can you put real loudpeaker under blacked out status bar?There are many ways to implement proper stereo speakers without the need for a huge bezels.
Side facing like mate 20x
Acoustic actuators
Or speaker grills betwen the glass and the frame like the xperia z5 for example. With a proper speaker and good calibration the sound can be channelled to whatever direction desired.

Oneplus 7 Pro has rubber seals on pop-up camera, sim-card tray and usb port, so technically it is water resistant.

It's all theory, but tell me one proof of broken pop-up camera since its introduction. In reality Vivo Nex 3 and Oppo Find X were released in 2018 and after 2 years there are zero broken mechanisms.

Just stop your scepticism and enjoy the technology :)

Apple move : removing the stickers

With not a single comment on the losing war of privacy, I guess we don't need privacy any more.

This is how intrusive it has become. From 2010 laptops showing you LED light when camera's on, to the time when camera itself is disappearing from your eyes.

I really think Nokia 808 was "SOS" written in code form, but with public this dumb... I guess, we just let it go.

At the moment the Fold is too bulky. When it becomes thinner it will be interesting to replace the Note, before NO.

Sounds like a good idea. While the Z Fold2 is a massive improvement over the Fold in terms of design, I still think that the single punch hole inside the folding screen ruins the aesthetics a little.

I think it's quite a good idea, even better if they'd put it right in the middle of the display so it acts more closely to an actual mirror. Though if it meant a portion of the screen is low resolution, and possibly noticeable, then I stick with my thick bezel phone.
