We knew that the "notch" from the iPhone X is going to make a debut on a bunch of Android smartphones this year and as expected, the OnePlus 6 is going to be one of them as well. In fact, in an interview with The Verge, Director and co-founder Carl Pei even admitted to the fact that the upcoming OnePlus 6 will sport the notch because of the iPhone X! On being asked if OnePlus would have adopted the notch had it not been for the iPhone X, this is what he said;


"Maybe not as fast. But we have access to the roadmaps of all the screen manufacturers, and when they gave us the opportunity to make cutouts at the top of the screen, it just made sense." - Carl Pei.


If that's not copying, then it would be hard to define the term! In my humble opinion, it makes no sense in buying a phone that clearly draws its "inspiration" from the latest iPhones way too closely because irrespective of how good it may or may not be, it would still be known as an iPhone X clone. When you are going to spend $500+ on a smartphone, that's not a tag which you would want to carry around to be honest. Besides, OnePlus doesn't seem to be bothered with being the innovator and disruptor that it once was in the smartphone market. Finally, why on earth would anyone put a notch on their product! It may add to the aesthetic value, but as far as utility is concerned, it would essentially cut down the screen size while watching videos.
