When Apple finally presented iPhone X after numerous rumors, we received confirmation of what we had been guessing for a long time. Despite the dissatisfaction of users, a notch with TrueDepth and Face ID sensors appeared on the display of the new flagship Apple. Instead of hiding the sensors in a black status bar, Apple instead used a notch and demanded that the developers do the same.
Then many wondered why Jony Ive and his team decided to do this, and users Android began to be afraid to get into the same situation. However, a couple of months later we have over 20 different smartphones that have copied the design of iPhone X. And they all run on Android. Smartphone manufacturers with Android often copy features iPhone, and Samsung has been doing this for many years.
Lesser known Chinese firms also decided to copy the design of iPhone X. Among the smartphones below, there are brands that you have hardly heard of before. For example, what is Wiko Wave 2?
In the picture you can see 23 smartphones, but only 20 of them accurately copied the design from Apple. The Essential smartphone came out earlier than iPhone X, and the aforementioned Wiko Wave 2 looks more like a copy of it than a copy iPhone. Thus, only 20 smartphones were copied from iPhone X. It's also worth noting that design rumors for iPhone X appeared before Essential was released, so nothing can be said for sure. Most likely 99% of the notches on smartphones were copied from Apple, even though the company used it for its new sensors.
Those who expected the notch iPhone to be temporary must have been disappointed that it became a trend.
