    the OP6T will not have a notch and will have an inscreen FPS and all the OP6 buyers that settled will be super pi$$ed

    The only thing I don't understand is that you have bottom bezel even there is a notch on top. The reason iPhone X has notch because they want their phone to be bezel less, but then they can't manage where to put front camera and censor so they put them on notch...

    To be honest, why is everyone moaning so much, OnePlus will do what they have always done and what other companies do, they will do what they want. If you don't like the notch, stay with your present OnePlus phone or choose a phone from another company, there is a vast amount of choice out there.

    I agree it's a shame to see oneplus go this way, I don't like the notch myself, just looks wrong, but at the end of the day it's just a phone, go buy a different one.

    Let's consider the first phone which you might recognise as the first "modern" form factor smartphone; the iPhone. In 2007 this device landed, no, smashed through the ceiling as a revolutionary device. It set the benchmark for how many devices after that? The issue was this was the first touch full panel which got traction and drove the change. Hell the Sony Ericsson p800 wasn't far off with a gap of 5 years. The Essential Phone had the notch before the iPhone X. BlackBerry had swipe gestures before the iPhone X. My point here is these people saying the are "ripping off apple" are just tunnel visionaries who have a lack of knowledge.

    The thing is, how many people rebelled against the slight variation of form factor and later embraced the change? If it wasn't for Innovation and change like this we'd still have flip phones with polyphonic ringtones.

    The above is to the best of my knowledge. Happy to be corrected.

    what a hypocritical thread. and what a hypocrite of a company.
    they do whatever they want , and in the end they say it's all bcos fans want it.
    thank god I have a 5T before it went out of stock.
    and now deciding which phone to buy this year.
    this year is a bad year for the Android phones.
    no more buying oneplus in the future till the time they bring out a proper phone.
    the message is very clear.make a cheap oppo phone first.
    then take out the hardware inside and insert a snapdragon. so you get a OnePlus.

    rightly said.
    I don't want to be the butt of all the jokes.
    I can't use this cheap clone.

    I like the notch, it's quirky, cool, although the shiny glass back that I've seen in some "leaks" looks ******* discusting, please have a matte finish one [e]1f602[/e] or just keep the aluminium body

    This does not explain why Apple and even Vivo to a certain extent is able to do without a bottom bezel. I really am not a fan of the lopsided look that this gives, like the Oppo R15 and the new Zenfone. I defended you guys last year with the OP5 looking like an iPhone 7, but this is just too much. There is no justification to go the notch route, other than wanting to look like an iPhone, and because the technology allows for it. The slim, yet symmetrical bezel on the S9 is the most attractive look right now. Even if it lacks a bit of personality.

    It's official, but from the Huawei p20 pro. :p it's just a gif that Engadget shared and really illustrates a simple solution for the notch hate.

    Neither , I was trying to explain that the mobile designs are completed well in advance of any "lets talk" or offical design announcement threads.

    oneplus did not steel the notch from the iPhone x. sheer it came out on the iPhone x first but was not designed by apple. China phone company's cam up with the idea first and apple liked it so much they bought the rights to have it on there phone. people need to do research before they post about copying Apple.

    A oneplus 6 user will be known as "the guy who cannot buy the iPhone X"
    No innovation at all from oneplus. They say they do it for the fans and hardly listen to the feedback from the community. You have already lost the original oneplus (op1&2) users, continue at this rate and you will lose the rest of them.
    The oneplus 6 is bound to be the next oneplus 2. Neglected by the company.

    I have purchased multiple Oneplus phones since the OPO in 2014, and every one since except the 5T, for myself and friends and family but I will be passing on the OP6 or whatever they call it because of the notch. A long time loyal Oneplus user here ... Gone
