OnePlus 6 display notch official

One week after confirming that the OnePlus 6 will have a display notch, OnePlus has confirmed another detail of the OP6’s screen.

OnePlus will allow OnePlus 6 owners to “hide” the device’s notch. This will be accomplished by giving OP6 users the option to black out the background of the notifications and status bar. OnePlus will add this feature to the OnePlus 6 in a software update after the phone’s launch.

According to OnePlus CEO Pete Lau, a status bar blackout feature was considered for the OnePlus 6 early on, but the company opted not to add it so that it could instead focus on the device’s full-screen experience. “I still believe the best way to experience the OnePlus 6 is using the full potential of the display,” Lau says. But many users expressed interest in a blackout feature, OnePlus has decided to give OP6 owners that option.

While some people don’t mind the notch, others really don’t care for it. That’s why it’s good to see OnePlus offer the option to black it out on the OnePlus 6, and it’s possible that this move will help convince some people that were on fence about the OP6 because of its notch to pull the trigger on the device.

Like it or not, the OnePlus 6 is going to have a notch. In an attempt to soften the blow and deal with the inevitable criticism ahead of the phone’s launch, OnePlus has been bullish about the inclusion. Co-founder Carl Pei did an interview in which he explained the decision and its various merits, and CEO Pete Lau started up a thread on the company’s forum to engage with fans on the subject.

OnePlus 6 will let you hide its notch

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

It should come as no surprise by now that, like many other Android handsets lately, the OnePlus 6 will have a display cut-out near the top of its panel. Ever since sister company Oppo released its R15 pair there has been little doubt about the design of the upcoming OnePlus. If that wasn’t proof enough, co-founder Carl Pei, later described the notch in detail as well, stating that it will measure 19.62 x 7.69mm and that it will be “adding more screen real estate instead of taking anything away”. That reasoning was apparently insufficient for many anti-notch fans, currently voicing…

OnePlus will let users hide the notch on the OnePlus 6

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has taken to the company’s forums to offer fans some reassurance about the upcoming OnePlus 6 and its controversial notched display. In response to a loud and passionate negative reaction, Lau says that OnePlus will now offer the option to black out the sides of the screen around the notch and thereby hide it, much as Huawei has done with the P20. I’ve been using the latter phone since its announcement in Paris last week, and I’ve never felt the need to hide its notch, but it’s good to have the option for people suffering from notch allergies.

The OnePlus 6 will get the notch-hiding tweak in a software update after release, Lau says, which again indicates the imminent arrival of his company’s next flagship phone….

LG G7 render leak shows display notch and dual rear cameras

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Now that the Samsung Galaxy S9 has launched, many mobile enthusiasts have turned their attention to one of the next Android flagships in the pipeline, the LG G7. And the good news for them is that some new details on the G7 have leaked.

Renders that claim to show the LG G7 have made their way online. Shared by OnLeaks and TheMrPhone, these renders are based off of leaked factory CAD schematics. 

The renders show a slab of a phone with a large screen that has minimal bezels. Like the iPhone X and some recent Android flagships from other companies, this LG G7 appears to have a display notch. Around back there’s a vertically stacked dual camera setup with a fingerprint reader below it. And at the bottom of the phone is a USB-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

LG G7 renders leak

Today’s report also claims to have some spec info for the LG G7. The device will reportedly feature a 6-inch display, Snapdragon 845 processor, dual 16MP rear cameras, and two models with different RAM and storage options: one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage and one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

These leaked specs line up with what we’ve heard in the past about the LG G7. Most of those specs fit with what we’d expect from an Android flagship in 2018, but we’ll have to wait until the G7 is officially announced before we know for sure if they’re accurate. The good news is that LG is rumored to be aiming for a May launch for the G7, so it may not be long before all is revealed.

Based on what we’ve heard about the LG G7 so far, are you looking forward to this flagship?

LG G7 leaks: RGBW screen with a notch and a chin, 16MP F/1.5 dual cam

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Info on the LG G7 is not available publicly, but some has come out from behind closed doors. The phone will allegedly use an M+ LCD, an RGBW panel that promises to cut power use by 35% thanks to dedicated white pixels. It’s not a new idea, but previous implementations have been less than stellar. That screen will have a notch, as seen in this leaked glass panel and also CAD-based renderings of the device itself. The notch will house the selfie camera, earpiece and ambient light sensor at least. In terms of size, we’re looking at a 6″ screen with a taller than usual 19:9 aspect…

The rumor mill for LG’s upcoming G7 has had an interesting ride, with reported name changes, scrapping of an existing design, and so on. Most recently, we saw a video leak of the “G7 (Neo),” which was later said by Evan Blass to simply be the standard G7. These latest CAD renderings, courtesy of OnLeaks, confirm what we’d previously seen.

OnLeaks collaborated with Mr. Phone to unveil this set of renderings, as well as a 360-degree video.

LG asks Reddit for feedback on “the Notch”

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

There has been a lot of contriversy over “the notch” in the past several days, particularly with Huawei’s announcement of the P20 and P20 Pro (though you do have the option of turning it off in the software), which both have notches. More recently, there was outcry on Twitter when Carl Pei, founder of OnePlus, was quoted saying that we should “learn to love the notch”. Having this notch in the display was the only way that Apple could get away making a phone (mostly) all display without technically having a bezel. This design choice is now trickling into other smartphone manufacturers and…
