Why do Android phones want a notch?2 min read . Updated: 29 Apr 2018, 06:30 PM IST
Ever since the iPhone X made the cut-out in the display fashionable, Android phone makers are queueing up to adopt it for new phones
A notch is essentially a cut-out, at the top, of a part of the screen display. Its advantage: It offers the ability to retain the display space on either side of it, for information such as date, battery statistics and more, and for apps. “Our research has shown that the space occupied by the notch typically goes unused in standard use. The notch makes optimal use of the vacated space," says Pete Lau, CEO, OnePlus. No wonder, then, that the Oppo F7, Vivo V9 and Huawei P20 Pro have adopted it.
