While Android OEMs are embracing the display notch en masse, a couple of manufacturers based in China are showing the world that it’s possible to have a full-screen display on a smartphone if you’re willing to get creative with the camera placement.

Samsung has a near monopoly in the smartphone OLED panel market and happens to be the biggest supplier of OLED panels for mobile devices.

It is safe to say that future Apple products will most likely see the use of OLEDs. Apple already introduced OLEDs to the iPhone X, so like we said, future iPhones and iPads and possibly even Mac computers might turn to the use of the display technology. Given the millions of devices Apple sells, that’s a lot of OLEDs they’ll be consuming.

Just like Touch ID, it seems that Apple’s Face ID is testing pretty positive amongst reviewers. Sure, there might be some issues here and there, but we expect that Apple will improve upon it and fix it with software updates over time, but for the most part, it looks like Face ID is indeed working as advertised.
Based on the current trend, it seems that one of the popular design choices for smartphones these days is to create a phone with as little bezel as possible. However we imagine that in the future our phones could look a lot different, but could foldable phones be the next big thing in tech?

The iPhone has seen considerable growth in China for the past few years. According to a new report from Counterpoint Research, it has actually been the top selling smartphone in the People’s Republic of China since 2012 but the latest data shows that Apple’s smartphone as now lost its top spot.
