When the iPhone X was revealed in 2017, we had an undeniable wave of imitations in the Android world, in order to first try to copy the 'notch', and later to try to present reduced margins, especially at the bottom, where Apple folds the AMOLED screen provided by Samsung, to eliminate the famous 'chin' that remains a nightmare for other rival manufacturers.
It is that although ‘notch’ was the most copied element in the design of the iPhone X, the truth is that the brightest feature of the smartphone was the folded screen at the bottom! Something that the Android world has had some difficulties in 'copying', and that apparently will again be left to eat dust with the launch of the iPhone 12.

So, as you may know, ‘notch’ wasn’t a novelty introduced by Apple!
We had Androids with this design philosophy before the launch of the iPhone X in 2017. That said, Apple just adopted ‘notch’ as a commitment to make room for its famous 3D recognition system. However, he made no further commitments on the other three margins, by bringing an ‘infinite’ screen to these margins, even going so far as to patent a ‘fold’ of this same screen.

Having said all this, according to the famous 'leaker' Ice_Universe, it seems that Apple will even launch a re-design with its new iPhone 12, where it will further reduce margins, without resorting to any curvature on the screen, at the same time as it will also reduce the size of the famous notch.

Interestingly, Huawei has also tried to come up with a solution to this problem! When bringing the P40 Pro to the table, a smartphone that curves the screen at all 4 edges to minimize the edges.
