By the end of 2019 and early 2020, as you can see, Chinese smartphones, or even upcoming Google Pixel phones, will have a mole-screen design (Infinity-O) rather than rabbit ears. ...
Take a look at some models that are using the mole design as follows: Huawei Nova 5T, Redmi K30, Samsung Galaxy A51, Galaxy S10 series, Galaxy Note 10 series,….
Well, it seems that this time it is not Apple's design that creates Trends for smartphones in the world anymore. How can this be explained? Is Apple's design no longer popular?
#first. What is perforated screen?
Perforated screen, also known as mole screen, or Infinity-O screen as Samsung calls it, as the name implies: There is a hole in the screen.
Similar to a rabbit ear or a drop of water, this is a design that gouges into the screen at a very small size, to increase the display area for the screen.
With designs like water droplets or rabbit ears, the chisel is on the border of the device, while this mole design is different, the mole will be a bit away from the border. The size of a mole depends on the number of front cameras, but usually it will be better than the other designs.
And the perforated part will fit in the whole display. It looks quite nice and sophisticated ..
This design was initiated from the Samsung Galaxy S10, then succeeded by the Galaxy Note 10, and then flagged by carriers like Xiaomi, Vivo, Oppo, Huawei, and perhaps the Google Pixel 4A as well as So.
The perforated screen is also popularized by Samsung itself for its mid-range segment such as the Galaxy A51, Galaxy A71, Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro, or the Galaxy Note 10 Lite and S10 Lite. And neither is the Galaxy S20 and Mi 10 recently launched!
#2. Why is a mole screen a trend?
When launched, this is a design that is not considered beautiful. It is not as symmetrical as the previous designs, which makes users feel uncomfortable when the black selfie camera is located in the screen but also deviates to an angle.
Later, it seems that the selfie camera in the middle of the top edge of the Galaxy Note 10 Serie is the most reasonable for this design.
However, other OEMs prefer to deviate to the corner. Never mind! And the reason this design is so popular is probably as follows:
Apple's design is no longer ideal to become a learning goal for companies: Because it has been the third year since Apple's notch design first appeared on the iPhone X.
And up to 3 consecutive iPhone lines, from iPhone X, XS, XS Max, XR, iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, is still the notch design, OEMs and users are tired of it.
Because Chinese OEMs learned and popularized this design so quickly, it no longer reflected Apple's branding in the design: no longer luxurious and different, but when others look at the play, they know right now iPhone.
On the contrary, it is too common, rough and old because it is available on even cheap Chinese smartphones!
Sheltering Samsung is not a bad idea either: Yes, of course. After the Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 brought disappointments, it seems that the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 have brought just enough changes.
Not just from the perforated screen, but also from the color scheme and design language of the Galaxy Note 10. The Samsung Galaxy brand is not inferior to the Apple iPhone, so the learning of Samsung is not inferior to Apple.
Due to the ability to optimize the display area: Samsung Galaxy has a lot of designs that have been used such as Infinity - V, also known as a water drop screen, Infinity - U with a drop of water that is closer to the selfie camera, Infinity - O As above and Infinity, the screen does not have to be hollowed out by using the rear camera assembly to rotate like on Samsung Galaxy A80.
If the purpose of these designs, or even the notch, is to increase the display area of the screen, then it is clear that the screen is not hollowed out because the cameras with a folding or sliding mechanism are optimal.
However, these cameras entail another problem: durability, stability and water resistance. Therefore, the perforated screen will be a more reasonable design.
Probably just that, right? that's enough to design the mole to be the most ideal of the designs.
# 3. Conclude
It's up to the user, but I don't like the design carved into the screen at all. Many people also call it screen defect 😛
Personally, I find it a good idea to trade some of the top and bottom borders like Sony for a non-perforated screen experience. Do you like this type of punching? Comment in the comments below.
