Just do what you think is right, forget about whatever everyone is saying, forget about the side talks and gossip, and keep doing it, until one day, people will begin to see reasons with you, and that was exactly what Apple did with the Apple iPhone X. In a bid to achieve what is known as a completely bezeless smart phone, Apple took the one bold step, by introducing us to notch display smart phones with the Apple iPhone X, and since then, trust me it was a hell of a war between two different worlds. The apple fan boys who completely fell in love with it, and the android fan boys who are ready to scream at the top of their voice, and rip off their hairs from their skin at the mention of a notch inspired android phone.
But even with all these recent bloody notch war happening, it seems most android OEMs simply don’t care about what people are saying against the notch, and they just go ahead to produce smart phones, with the iPhone X inspired notch.
So today’s article talks about a list of all the popular recent smart phones that have adopted the iPhone X notch, maybe in case you’re wishing to adopt something of that nature, or you just want to feast your eyes to some beautiful sights.
1. The Leagoo S9
The Leagoo S9 is one of the few smart phones that first introduced the iPhone X notch to android, before everyone went crazy, and it is now gradually becoming a norm in the android industry. The device was first unveiled at MWC 2018, and packs quite a handful of impressive midrange specs, like a 5.85 inches HD+ display, which is where the notch lies, a 4GBs of RAM, and 32GBs of onboard storage, dual camera setup that is as well positioned as that of the iPhone X, and guess what, it comes with face unlock too. Cool right?
2. The Ulefone T2 Pro
Just like the former, the Ulefone T2 Pro was as well unveiled at MWC 2018, but this time it features quite a handful of impressive specs that might leave some mouths watering. Like it is the first device to use the new Mediatek Helio P70 Octa Core Processor, comes with a huge 6.7 inch display at the front, which houses the notch, a staggering 8GBs of RAM, coupled with a massive 128GBs of on board storage, comes with a dual 21mp + 13mp camera combo at the back, 16mp at the front, and a wicked 5000mAh power battery.

3. The Huawei P20 and P20 Pro
People like the likes of Huawei and other well known big names in the smart phones manufacturing game, were the places we least expected to see a notched android phone. But who knows, maybe Huawei saw a very bright future with the notch, so it need not waste any single time, before implementing it with the latest Huawei P20 and the P20 Pro smart phones, which are touted as the world’s best camera phones as of now, because of their crazy triple camera setup at the back, but not until the likes of Google Pixel 3 comes to kick it out of the competition. But coming back to the notch topic, Huawei was quite thoughtful on this one, by giving an option which allows you to turn off the notch on both devices, if you are not a fan of the notch, but still want to enjoy some hardcore camera shootout with this thing.
4. Huawei Honor 10
The Honor 10 is the latest addition of Huawei to the Honor phone series, and as well the second smart phone from Huawei to feature a notch, which simply translates to we are in to see lots of great notch treats from Huawei, before the year runs out. Specs wise, it comes with a bunch of quite impressive specs, like it features the same Kirin 970 Octa Core processor used on the Mate 10 and the P20(s), an impressively large 5.84 inches screen with a FHD+ resolution, you either get a 6GB RAM or a 4GB RAM, with 128GBs and 64GBs of inbuilt storage respectively. Dual camera setup as usual (16 + 24mp – Rear), then also comes with the same 24mp front facing cameras featured on the P20(s). You can read more about it Here.
5. Asus Zenfone 5
The Zenfone 5 is Asus latest addition for its flagship Zenfone series, and asus first entry device to the notch game. Packs quite a bunch of impressive specs, like the latest Snapdragon 845 chipset found on the likes of Samsung Galaxy S9, and then you are given a lot of different storage options to choose from. There’s the 256GB version with 8GBs of RAM, then there’s the 128GB with 6GB RAM version, and finally a still considerable 64GB version, with 4GBs of RAM. Quite impressive isn’t it?.

6. The OnePlus 6 Smart Phone
Like it or not, the new OnePlus device which will be launched in coming weeks will sure do have a notch, sorry to all the OnePlus fans out there, you can go complain to your CEO who didn’t listen to your cries. But there’s good news too, the device will as well allow its users to be able to turn off the notch in the display, just like we’ve seen on the Huawei P20(s). So, its still a win-win game.
7. The LG G7
The next flagship phone from LG, which is labeled as LG G7 ThinQ, will be the 7th addition to its lineup of the G flagship series. And will probably come with some top notch specs, and features, like a 6.0 inches QHD+ display, which is probably where the notch lies, latest Snapdragon 845 processor, you get to choose either a 128GB + 6GB RAM version, or the much smaller 64GB + 4GB RAM version, dual 16mp cameras at the back, and a standard 8mp at the front, and to wrap it up, it might come with a 3000mAh power battery, which i think is way too much below average.
8. The Next Pixel Device From Google. The Google Pixel 3
Alright, as of the moment, we don’t have any proves as to whether the next Google Pixel will be coming with a notch or not. But from the recent Android P First Developer Preview released last month, that has support for Notch displays, this might be a clue that Google is as considering joining the Notch Competition. And guess what, Google might even try to make people to get to start loving it, by giving them a reason to. Cool right?
9. The Vivo V9 and The X21
Remember Vivo? the smart phone company that first proved to us that fingerprint readers can be practically moved under the display of smart phones. See It Here In Case You Missed It.
So our beloved Vivo decided to take things up a notch, by introducing us to the Vivo V9 and the Vivo X21. These are two distinctively different phones released in the same month, and with the same notch. While the former falls more into the midrange smart phones division, featuring a 6.3 inches display screen, a Snapdragon 626 Processor, 64GBs of storage, and 4GBs of RAM, while the later relies back in something between high end and midrange, packing a smaller 6.28 inches screen, but with same resolution as the former, a higher Snapdragon 660 chipset, and a bigger 128GB of storage, and 6GBs of RAM.
10. The Oppo F7 And The R15
Okay, just as it was with Vivo, Oppo, which i personally think is not much that of a popular smart phone, but still took the courage to make an entry into Notch industry, with the Oppo F7, and the R15 smart phones. Different phones featuring similar specs, only difference being the Snapdragon 660 processor which was used on the R15 Pro, against the Mediatek Helio P60 used in the F7 and the standard R15. Read more about them Here (F7), and Here (R15).
11. Wiko View 2, And View 2 Pro
And as for the last, but certainly not the last of the many more to come, are the new Wiko devices, labeled the View 2, and the View 2 Pro. Quite a decent budget midrange devices if you consider getting one for your yourself. And guess what, these things don’t come with the iPhone X inspired notch, instead, they chose to go the Essential Phone’s way, with their tiny little rounded notch, that can only fit a front facing camera. The former packs a pretty good 6.0 inches HD+ display, a Snapdragon 435 chiset, coupled with just 3GBs of RAM, a 13mp camera and a 3000mAh power battery, while the later (View 2 Pro) comes in with the same screen size, s slightly higher Snapdragon 450 processor, 4GBs of RAM, a bigger 16mp camera, and same 3000mAh power battery.
