If 2018 was the year of the notch in smartphones, 2019 is turning out to be the year when OEMs race to remove the notch and put the front camera on a mechanical unit to stretch the screen all the way to the edges. Vivo and Oppo started the trend of pop-up and mechanical sliders and we have already seen Xiaomi, Samsung and Honor embrace the new design. It’s a nifty way to get around the notch, but it isn’t without its drawbacks. On Thursday, Asus also ditched the notch that it introduced in the Zenfone 5z amidst much fanfare at MWC last year, to offer a unique solution for a bezel-less display on the Zenfone 6. It’s the successive flagship from the Taiwanese computer giant and it pushes the boundaries when it comes to the smartphone camera.
