As previously disclosed the OnePlus 6 will be sporting a Notch and fans aren’t happy with the decision. To ease the build up OnePlus has come out with an explanation. Co Founder Carl Pei did the interview and CEO Pete Lau took to the OnePlus for defending the decision.
Many have pointed out the possibility of hiding the notch by making the status bar black with notification and status icons white. This is being implemented on newly launched Huawei Flagships that too sport the notch. Thankfully, OnePlus will be working on adding this feature but it will be released post launch of the OnePlus 6.
In a new post on the OnePlus forum today, Lau said that the Notch hiding feature was considered by OnePlus during the development phase but was later dropped,
It’s good that OnePlus is listening to the fans and are ready to tweak the product. OnePlus has been teasing the OnePlus on their social media handles and the launch seems to be in the coming weeks. So far the basis specifications have been released like the inclusion of a headphone jack, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and a 256GB storage model coupled with 8GB RAM
