If You Were Wondering Which Android Handset Maker Would Be the First to Shamelessly Copy the iPhone X’s Notch, We Have a Winner

Ian Cutress, reporting for AnandTech:

Today Asus is launching a smartphone that is designed, according to the speaker at our pre-briefing, to make it look like the user is holding an iPhone X. The new Asus ZenFone 5, part of the ZenFone 5 family, comes with a notch. Apparently this is what the company says that its customers want: the ability to look as if you have an iPhone X, but have something else.

They didn’t even get the shape of the notch right. And it still has a chin. It’s less like a rip-off of an iPhone X than it is like a parody of a rip-off.
