Carl Pei deletes "learn to love the notch" tweet after outcry from fans
Yesterday, Carl Pei talked up the decision to add a notch to the OnePlus 6. He even tweeted Learn to love the notch with a link to his interview with The Verge. Now that tweet is gone, deleted. Peis timeline doesnt mention even a peep about a notch. Heres a copy of the deleted tweet:
Understandably, there was an outcry from fans they didnt like the new design direction. Admittedly, thats not uncommon, every new design has its detractors. Still, there must have been quite the outpour of disappointment for the OnePlus co-founder to delete the tweet.
So, where does OnePlus go from here? Removing the notch wouldnt be possible without a redesign and that would cause a delay. The companys motto is Never Settle, so it better hope that the notch-haters are a vocal minority otherwise, it might need a new slogan.
Oh, and speaking of tweets that have not aged well:
And they did have to cut the production for iphone X, because of how low were the sales
