Why the Pixel 3 will probably have a notch just like the iPhone X
One of the most disturbing thing coming out of the MWC 2018 was the cloning of the iPhone X design. Many Android device makers have decided that the notch the only way to go to increase the display-to-body ratio in phones that have otherwise reached their design peak.
Pretty much every major player in the Android universe can pull off all-screen smartphones with great, high-resolution, 18:9 displays. Samsung’s Galaxy S9 is one such example, the Xperia XZ2 is another. But neither model features a screen that extends to all edges like the iPhone X’s screen does. That’s a notch for that.
