The new trend in smart phone designs is as thin-framed screens as possible.
Smartphone manufacturers have been doing quite different things in the last couple of years, designing differently.
The Sharp Aquos S2, Essential PH-1 and iPhone X, which hit the market at about the same time, have been trying to make a smartphone that is completely frameless. It was the first phones to bring the pace to the telephone world.
In this race, the producers who have faced with different notch designs since last year have been in a race.

How do producers differentiate themselves at a time when phones are so similar to each other?
Looking at the front, the phones, consisting of a piece of black glass, became very similar to each other. Some manufacturers are taking different steps in the back design to separate their devices from others. Oppo Realme 2 is the two most important examples of these different devices, with a series of P20s with color transitions and a geometric design.
Another example of the rear design is the Mi 8 Explorer Edition with its transparent looking chassis. With this perfectly visible design, Xiaomi has produced the phone with the most distinctive rear design in recent years.

Structural changes in phones
Manufacturers pushing the boundaries of smartphone screen frames have had difficulty locating the front camera and various sensors. In Oppo Find X and Vivo NEX S, it turned out to be interesting with this shift mechanism. Huawei's Honor Magic 2 and Xiaomi's Mi Mix 3 devices will be similar
The next radical change in the structure of phones will be foldable devices. Galaxy F, which will be marketed by Samsung, the pioneer of flexible OLED displays, can open up a new era in the smartphone world. Following Galaxy F, which is expected to be introduced in the next few months, the likelihood that other manufacturers will face up with foldable phones seems quite high.
