OnePlus 6T vs OnePlus 6: The Notch!

Since Apple introduced a notch in their iPhone X for the first time, almost every smartphone manufacturer started featuring it in their smartphones except Samsung.

The notch on the OnePlus 6 is just like the one on the iPhone X. That’s easily noticeable and big. But in the OnePlus 6T, the story is different. The notch on the OnePlus 6T is a now like the OPPO R11. It’s a tear-drop one. It’s now just a tiny little space on the top of the screen as you can see in the following image from GizmoChina :

Maybe it won’t be that disturbing for users now. Many people did like the notch on the OnePlus 6, I don’t see any major reasons of a notch to be liked. Is it just because Apple used it in their phones? But Apple featured a notch for a reason. The notch on the iPhone X houses a superior face scanning hardware inside it. Is OnePlus is having that? No! So why the notch is even there?! But now I’m glad that the notch trend is going away slowly with the introduction of smaller notches!

Not 2018, but 2019 will surely become the year of more such in-display fingerprint sensor featuring phones. The in-display fingerprint sensor was in the Vivo Nex for the first time in the world. Since then we’ve seen a few devices like the OPPO FIND X following the same path and now the OnePlus 6T which is a great thing!
