Xiaomi teases Play smartphone with waterdrop notch

18 December 2018
It's Xiaomi's first phone with a waterdrop notch, is it the Redmi 7 by another name?

[deleted post]That's a very racist thing to say. I don't like Xiaomi or any of the other Chinese smartphone vendors but I wouldn't go far as to say something like that. It's ignorant.

I think waterdrop notches are okay, but I prefer the ones with a smoother, more waterdrop-like shape (like in Mate 20, for example), not a standard semicircle.

I hate Xiaomi phones with a notch because it still has a big bezel. What's the essence of having a notch then? I used Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite and I must say the design was ridiculous, just like this one.

Poco f1 has bigger battery, bigger display, better build quality, more memory and fluent chipset.

The model looks feminine.
Smooth skin, red lips, no facial hairs, no beard, no mustache.
Why china brands love to use "pretty male" model like that?

samart, 19 Dec 2018A water drop notch like Realme 2 Pro would've been awesome, that... moreYeah Realme 2 Pro like notch is prefect V looks better than this.U or semi circle

Marco M, 19 Dec 2018You would rather have them make the notch bigger, into a V shape... moreV looks better than this even though it might a little bigger

I was expecting a huge battery or a powerful SoC because of Play moniker, from the teasers it looks like it will be audio oriented

Please don't be the MediaTek, please. Otherwise this phone won't get any alternative ROMs or so. Xiaomi don't be that stupid and don't go back to using MediaTek's chipsets. Even though I am not going to buy it I just wish MediaTek's would exist only in phones under 150 dollars or euros so people with less money can afford them.

A water drop notch like Realme 2 Pro would've been awesome, that's the only notch till date that I liked a little.

But this is a semi circle notch... And I hate the way it looks.
