Guys, the Notch trend is here to stay and Google might be the latest phone manufacturer to follow the trend:
Now, here’s my beef with this trend, there is no reason why these Android phone manufacturers are adopting it! Take Apple as an example, they needed room for Face ID and they knew adding a little extra bezel around the entire screen would just make their phone look like another Android device, hence the reason for the notch! However, every other Android phone manufacturer has had no technical reason why they’ve added the notch, except to copy Apple!
Now based on the latest leaks, it seems Google Pixel 3 XL might also jump on the bandwagon.
Asides from the notch, the leak revealed that the new Google devices might come with bezels, albeit smaller than what you get on the Pixel 2.
You may still get front-facing speakers and there is a big chance that there might be two cameras in front, but something tells me that it could just be another sensor — maybe a face unlock sensor?
Now, there is another thing I noticed with the leak — the chin!!! I mean, what’s the point of a notch if the bottom chin is going to be massive?
Of course, this image might not be the real deal, but let’s play pretend, would you like a phone that looks like this?
In other news, I am here waiting for Samsung to launch their foldable phone so that everyone copies that, and the notch can fade into obscurity where it belongs.
