The notch is here to stay, unfortunately for many users. Brands seem not to be listening too much criticism about this “fashion” imposed shortly after the arrival of the iPhone X to market, although the Essential Phone was the first smartphone to show this design. Now it would have confirmed the OnePlus 6 with notch , through its firmware.
It is not the first time that we talk about a OnePlus 6 with notch . The filtered images of the smartphone that we showed a few weeks ago already showed the terminal with this notch on the screen, and the revelation of the design of the Oppo R15 (terminal on which the next flagship of the Chinese brand is based), also revealed how the phone will imitate the design of the iPhone X .
The definitive confirmation is given by the firmware of OnePlus . Earlier this week, the brand launched OxygenOS Open Beta 4, bringing the first version of Android 8.1 Oreo to OnePlus 5T . As expected, the guys at XDA Developers have not taken long to find in the software references to the future OnePlus 6 .
OnePlus 6 with notch
The firmware of OxygenOS has revealed that the next OnePlus 6 It is already under development under the code name Enchilada. This should not surprise anyone because we had already seen how other brands of the brand had code names of types of food, such as dumpling and cheeseburger that belong respectively to the OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5 .
Inside the firmware of OxygenOS a file named “Screendecor_up_image_enchilada_1” , an image that OnePlus could have used as a template to test applications on a OnePlus 6 prototype. This would not tell us too much on its own, but upon discovering a similar image in the Huawei P20 firmware files, we have already verified that will come with notch, it would be quite clear that the OnePlus 6 It will also have this notch on the screen.
Both the first filtered images, as the Oppo R15 and the filtering of the firmware of the device seem to make it quite clear that in just a couple of months we will attend the presentation of a OnePlus 6 with notch . We’ll see if the fans of the brand like “as much” as the followers of other Android brands that have chosen to imitate the design of the iPhone X.
It is rumored that the OnePlus 6 , in addition to this design, will come to market boasting Snapdragon 845 inside and with different variants of 6 GB of RAM + 64 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM + 128 GB of storage.
