Hello MIUIers
,

It was perhaps one of the most surprising trends to have caught on like wildfire. Almost everyone – barring the brand in question – had ridiculed it and called all sorts of things. We are talking about the notch that became mainstream after the launch of iPhone X last year. Since then every brand worth its salt – barring Samsung -- has launched a phone with a notch. However, the notch is passé now and the latest trend is a “waterdrop” notch.

The waterdrop notch, in fact even the regular notch, was first seen on the Essential phone. While Essential didn’t get exactly mainstream, a host of brands are now queuing up to launch phones with a waterdrop notch.

Earlier this month, Oppo launched the Oppo F9 Pro which claims to be the first smartphone to sport a waterdrop notch. If Oppo is mentioned, then Vivo can’t be far behind. Next up on September 6 is the launch of Vivo V11 Pro, a smartphone that is also expected to feature a waterdrop notch.

While the ‘regular’ notch mostly is home to a speaker, front cameras and other types of sensors. The waterdrop notch – due its shape and size – isn’t that ‘accommodating’ as the main purpose of it is to give more real estate on the display. No doubt it is an attractive design element but the functionality of it remains a bit foggy. In other words, it’s a nice differentiator but perhaps low on functionality. As we mentioned above, the notch is now as mainstream as it gets, especially with the launch of Realme 2, which claims to be the most affordable phone with a notch.

Well, the starting price of a waterdrop notch phone is just below Rs 25,000. It might just not become as mainstream as the notch but it certainly is a trend that could catch on in the smartphone industry.


Will the waterdrop notch become the new ‘regular’ notch?
