    Hopefully that means bye bye notches at least on OLED phones.

    I'm not sure an under screen laptop webcam is actually desirable? You can't cover it up without putting tape on the screen! Seems to raise some privacy concerns.

    Indeed, I like having tape over a webcam. Security promises come and go. There's no substitute for being able to physically block or disconnect the webcam.

    All you need is a single dodgy site, XSSing you, and you're hooked to Beef (although it does keep getting blocked here and there).

    EDIT - the other issue with this is longevity of the screens. Burn is a signfiicant issue on OLEDs as it is. Add mechanical stress to that and it feels as though they're potentially creating one new longevity problem without sorting the last. I'm getting tired of throw-away technology.

    Maybe they will make their devices bio-degradable so we don't have to feel so bad about buying a new phone every 2 days in 2040.

    Phones on toilet roll - take a new one every time you walk out of the door.
