Too bad it's just on paper, anyone can draw something like that, the problem is when your try to build it :)

Good: the cameras and sensors will eventually go under the screen and we will be having displays that are going to fill the entire front of the phones.

The easiest way to fix the notch is to stop crying about a little bit of bezel. You need a place to hold the phone anyway.

Seriously. They come out with a phone with no bezels, then folks are like "ugly chin". They get rid of the chin and folks are like "but that forehead!". When they get rid of all four sides, folks'll be like "look at that HUGE bezel on the back...there's like, no screen there!"

I thought this was Samsung's plan initially for the S10. It's probably extremely challanging and costly to accomplish right now.

I'll be interested to see how that screen corner bends... It's one thing to bend on a linear axis... but once you start changing the direction the pixels will be pulled apart in multiple directions. Images might get distorted in the corner

Top and bottom edge to edge? Case manufacturer's worst nightmare.
