Wait If You Want a Flagship Phone Without a Notch
If you don't want a notch at the top of your next smartphone's display, think about waiting for the Galaxy Note 9.
The iPhone X brought the notched screen into the mainstream and we're starting to see other manufacturers employ the notch on their devices in 2018.
LG's G7, also known as the LG G7 ThinQ, comes with a 6.1-inch notched display. Google's rumored Pixel 3 XL is rumored to have a notched display. And Apple's new 2018 iPhones will almost certainly come with a notch at the top of their displays.
Nothing is confirmed, but the Galaxy Note 9 looks like it won't have a notched display.
A purported Galaxy Note 9 screen panel recently leaked via Ice Universe and it features a familiar design setup up top. This doesn't confirm the absence of a notch on the Galaxy Note 9, but the source has proven to be accurate in the past.
We recommend going hands-on with notched phones before the Galaxy Note 9's arrival. If you can't stand it, you should think about waiting for the next Note.
