While it can be argued that screen cutouts are just a less obtrusive notch, it's definitely a stepping stone to the coveted full-screen display endgame. While such a design is already feasible as demonstrated by a couple of Chinese vendors, the issue lies with the essential hardware elements that still need to be put at the front of the phone - the camera, the proximity sensor, as well as the earpiece to some extent. From the looks of it, 2019 could be the year when the big boys on the mobile game will showcase their vision for the fullscreen future that we are headed for.
