OnePlus 6 latest news: You will be able to hide the notch

Published

on

The upcoming OnePlus flagship, the OnePlus 6 is one of the most talked-about smartphones in the current times. Ever since the co-founder of the company, Carl Pei made it official that the device would feature a notched display, there has been some sort of resentment among a lot of fans who do not like the notches in smartphones.

Finally, the company paid attention to the issue and has come up with some sort of a solution to this.

After taking a lot of feedback from the interested buyers, the company representative, Pete Lau, has finally addressed that the OnePlus 6 would let the users decide as to whether they want to keep the notch or not. This does not mean that the notch won’t be there. You will, however, be able to shrink down the UI and have a black bar at the top of the display instead.

[blockquote right=”pull-right” cite=”Carl Pei”]The notch will measure 19.62 x 7.69mm and it will be adding more screen real estate instead of taking anything away[/blockquote]

That is nowhere near a perfect solution to the problem. That said, one cannot just ignore the fact that everyone does not hate the notch and the notched smartphones are even liked by many. Looking at this feature from that standpoint appears to be a win-win situation for both sides of the world.

The feature won’t be rolling out of the box and users will have to wait for a while for it to arrive. Chances are that the update would arrive the moment the device receives Android P as the latest version of Android is going to have support for smartphones with notched displays.



One more point worth noticing with this development is the fact that it further solidifies the theory that the OnePlus 6 is going to feature an OLED display.

About the expected release date of the device, if we look at the historical trends followed by the company, the OnePlus 6 is most likely to debut come June. We could, however, expect it to launch even before that owing to the fact that the company has already started addressing the features of the device.

Moving to the specifications, the OnePlus 6 would feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The device would cost somewhere around $525 to $550.
