The notch thing was introduced byApple in their iPhone X. Slowly and gradually, other OEMs are also adopting the notch. I don’t know why but they’re serious in their business. The notched design first came with Android Oreo devices. Now when Android P is going to launch sooner, Google has laid down several laws in the latest Dev Preview.
In today’s Android P Developer Preview 5, Google has implemented the laws. The new designing techniques, from their blog post, the company says to take advantage of the cut-out area. The size of the notch may be small but now allows you to optimize the area to house the sensors. Also, the company has introduced a new SDK for Android P, which lets you select the app display ratio based on the number of notches. However, the notch size can matter.
Not only this, the SDK allows you to simulate your apps on a device having a notch.
Google also worked with several manufacturers for preparing these rules. The rules say:
You won’t see multiple cutouts on a single edge, or more than two cutouts on a device, also, won’t see multiple cutouts on a single edge, or more than two cutouts on a device
So, if you are thinking that this may bring a device triple notch, think again since this is not going to happen at all.
Also, yesterday, new leaks of upcoming Google Pixel 3 XL surfaced online, may also support Wireless Charging.
