    Honestly no, having not recently written a PHD on the subject, I don't have references immediately to hand.
    I am aware of that timescale in the same way I am aware how pens work, but I couldn't pull a 'source' out of my backside to counter someone's incorrect suggestion that pens are all made of chalk.
    It would be pointless anyway because you won't believe what I show you anyway, because you don't want to.
    But more specifically, you don't seem to understand how phone manufacturering works at all. The truth is literally the opposite of what you said. Companies like that could not produce a new phone on the schedule they do UNLESS they had a 18-24 month lead time. Like I said, they can make minor changes late on. They could take an existing project and change it to rush out something different if necessary. But yes my friend, it takes that long from the start of design until sale.

    It doesnt matter whose copying who, if anyone, the notch is an awful addition to iOS powered devices so far just the iPhoneX model, and hopefully it will stay that way, and likewise its an awful design choice on Android, likkewise it would be a bad choice on whatever screen.

    Ever since early man started to live in buildings some sort of opening was required, either a window, unglazed of course as Glass hadn't been invented or a door, neither of which feature a notch hanging down, if doorways had notch's then everyone would have a sore head (mind the Notch! - bumpf - ouch)

    When we started to paint on canvas/papyrus or other portable surfaces a notch wasnt put into the painting for that would be ridiculous, as it would be in photography, movies, and so on.
    How many Tvs are sold with a Notch? ?

    The only thing that has a notch of any use is a car, or any other vehicle that may be driven, where its known as a sun shade, and then if its not required you flip it out of the way as it becomes irritating, hanging down and getting in the way.

    Over millennia we have become accustomed to looking at the world through an aperture with (reasonably) straight edges, weather that be a window, someone else's interpretation of the world via the means of a classical painting in a gallery, on a piece of photographic paper, at the movies, on TV all of these work better without a notch in the way, and so do smartphones and other tech with screens

    I think that the notch is just a middle ground until manufacturers find a way to go completely bezel less. It probably won't be around long as phones are becoming more and more screen prevalent. Larger screens were were only natural as phone capabilities become much more able to do much more than just take a call.

    *And yes it was light hearted!

    I may have to disagree.
    The notch in phones have a purpose i.e , housing the front camera and other sensors. As far as i know,TVs , cars and windows don't have that

    So you response is because you said so. If you had showed me anything I would definitely consider it. That's the point of debate. When you only bring "because I said so" points to the debate, you're not being fair.

    @Pete or @Carl
    I'm very curious to hear your thoughts about the hardware procurement process and how the notched screen is acquired from a manufacturer and how that decision is made to go forward with a particular piece of hardware , in this case the screen.

    How many Notch panels versus other styles of screens were offered to OnePlus during the design process?

    I dont mind the notch, if they can make it more subtle the better... like that of the Essentials PH-1. Honestly i would love to see the screen wrap around the camera and speaker all together. :D

    The notch is cancer. Boycott all phones with it otherwise it will spread and destroy your life.

    Who said it's permanently blacked out? Or are you talking about the Huawei P20? Haven't seen anything saying that it's permanently blacked out on the op6

    Oh yeah. And when they eliminate the 3.5 jack they will also give us a solution to draw one by software.

    I could perfectly tell you that just giving work to fanboys like you that don't have nothing better to do than spend the day in front of a screen trying to justify the stupidities of a manufacturer and answering anyone who thinks differently. But no...
    I'm here basiclly because I want.

    Not sure why, but I still feel like there won't be any notch on OP6.

    A bigger screen-to-body ratio is useless if you can't properly use that extra screen space. I've thought about this for a while, and I'm now even willing to say that Samsung's curved glass edges and Apple's notch are both just ways to make the phone look better on paper, while cutting corners and decreasing user satisfaction.

    Notch is Okay for Me. Just add hiding option for the haters. The main deal breaker will be wireless charging and 1080 screen for me. It should support Wireless charging and better screen.
