Samsung has so far managed to stay away from the notch by sticking to its tried and tested low-bezel displays but they might actually introduce the infamous notch after all, albeit in a completely different way. Instead of opting for the hated notch on top to accommodate the sensors, mic and cameras, Samsung's future flagship smartphone in 2019 may just sport a side-notch on the Edge display! Cool as the idea may sound, the practicality of it doesn't make too much sense now, but the patent has indeed been filed by Samsung under the name, "Electronic Device Including Bended Display and Image Displaying Method Therethrough."
This could help Samsung eliminate the bezels altogether but even then, the design doesn't seem to be too practical at the moment. May be the patent will be discarded or maybe they will find a better way to implement the technology, but there's no denying that the Vivo Nex is a live example of the fact that a better alternative to the notch does indeed exist for truly bezel-less smartphones.
If you like Moto smartphones, then this leak has to be an exciting one for you. The Lenovo owned company, Moto has announced to release several smartphones this year. One of which will be the Moto G series phone powered by Snapdragon 800. This phone has already launched in China as the Moto Edge S and will get a global rebranding as the Moto G100. Another phone that we are going to witness this year by the same company is the Moto G30.
Moto G30 and Moto G10 are expected to be released this year. None of these mobiles is the successor to the Moto G from the previous year, however, the Moto G30 shares some of its specs with the Moto G9 released in August 2020. Recently, a few renders of Moto G30 were surfaced on the internet. As seen in the renders, the Moto G30 features a waterdrop notch. The phone features a 6.5-inch display screen with a resolution of 1600x720 which is the same display as that of the Moto G9 with a slightly higher refresh rate. The rear design of the phone is however completely different. The camera array at the rear panel sites on the left side of the phone. Whereas the Moto G9 had a camera system in the middle of the rear panel.
Moto G30 has four camera sensors at the rear side, including a 64MP primary camera sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera sensor, a 2MP depth camera sensor, and a 2MP macro camera. One of the smaller 2MP cameras is placed in a subspace with the primary camera housing along with the LED flash. To ensure secure access to the phone, there is also an optical fingerprint scanner being placed on the rear side too.
The renders show that the phone has a USB-C port on the right side of the device. We can't see the sides in the render but it is safe to assume that the phone has an audio jack along with a SIM tray. The right side of the device is dedicated to the physical buttons to activate Google Assistance, control volume, and power. The Moto G30 will feature a Snapdragon processor with 4GB or 6GB RAM with 64GB and 128GB storage. It will have a 90Hz refresh rate, a microSD card, and a 5,000mAh battery with 20W fast charging. The phone will carry the price tag of $199.
