Oppo R17 spy shots offer a clear look at the new smaller notch

30 July 2018
The R15 notch was fairly wide, the R17 is taking the company in a new direction (shared with the Oppo F9, it seems).

kakouille, 31 Jul 2018AwfulAhh, stop hating, this is probably the best notch ever. When viewing video there shall be slight black bar, when not, you get more screen. Brilliant!

Regardless of its design, a notch is a notch so no, thank you, unless it can be hidden like on the OP6.

This looks soooo much better than Apple's chunky notch. I would actually consider buying this.

Sharp had done that ages ago.

Notch is a notch.

We already have notchesless and bezelless at the same time. Oppo X, Nexus.

Notches must die now.

Whackcar, 30 Jul 2018These are some of the final phones to come out with notch. ... moreHopefully not.

Reverting to fat top bezels would be a giant step back.

It would mean that the forces of evil would have won (a bit of how they won when they sealed the battery and forced us to have to charge the phone whilst in fact we didn't have to in the past).

Generally apart, from the sealed battery, in everything else the mobile market is progressive. I.e. it continuously progresses. If the notch dies and revert to the big fat unibrow of galaxy S it would mean that the market made a turn and it is becoming as boring as laptops were in 2010s.

I.e. more of the same and often regressions.

Hopefully tech geeks won't destroy this industry too.

. I kinda doubt it though since Apple is a thoroughly progressive comonay and don't listen to geeks. And thankfully most follow Apple (I remember back when most were following Microsoft, what depressive times it was, one good idea every 10 atrocious one).

These are some of the final phones to come out with notch. The notch will die by 2020 (or preferably 2019!).
