Android Companies Rushing To Copy iPhone X
I think we can all take a wild guess as to which feature Android companies are already rushing to copy. We already spotted a smartphone that copied the iPhone X notch, but it lacked all the sensors Apple has integrated on their latest smartphone. However, a report by DigiTimes says that Android companies are already digging deeper into the notch and are trying to copy what’s inside it.

The TrueDepth front-facing camera uses 30,000 infrared dots to map a user’s face and aid in facial recognition capabilities. This feature is lacking in any Android smartphone and it seems like this may change in the near future. Android device manufacturers are now attempting to adopt the same ID sensing technology on their upcoming models and we are not surprised.
In fact, I predicted this would happen the moment iPhone X was available to buy. I tweeted out something similar and then found a Xiaomi phone that is already replicating the feature. At the time, the notch was only copied in the design sense, however, new reports are now pointing towards the actual technology being copied.
The report goes into detail and says that companies like Huawei, Oppo, and Xiaomi are already looking to acquire 3D sensing components. Suppliers like Largan Precision, Sunny Optical, Orbbec, and Himax Technologies are supposed to provide the parts. With a large number of companies now looking to manufacture the technology, this, in turn, will also benefit Apple as costs of production will also go down.
The report has currently only mentioned Chinese smartphone manufactures and there is no word on companies like Samsung, LG, HTC or Google trying to replicate the same 3D sensing technology. Reports have already confirmed that Samsung is already working on a similar technology for their upcoming smartphones in 2018.
