OnePlus 6 is adopting an iPhone X-like notch and didn’t get a good response from fans, so OnePlus decided to make things right. Clearly, the organization has kept an ear close to the ground as CEO Pete Lau recently revealed that users will be able to hide notch and black out the display area around the notch for a traditional display.
OnePlus Confirmed: Users Will Have the Option to Hide Notch in Settings
“A Black-out feature was considered in the stages of development of the OnePlus but we decided against this black-out feature We want to give our best and focus all our time on delivering an exceptional full-screen. My faith lies in full potential of the display. In Forums many users showed interest in black-out feature, as we value your feedback, we would like to give everyone to choose. This function will enable and black out the display area around the notch and it will be added in a future software update after launch. Look forward to sharing this new update with you all. Thank you for making us better!”
This promise points directly to a forum thread that OnePlus doesn’t listen to its fans, and iPhone X-like notch just to jump on the latest design fad.
This feature will allow users to use the device as they prefer. OnePlus discontinuing its latest OnePlus 5T so the OnePlus 6 is expected to launch soon.
