From what we have seen so far, the notch appears to be one of the emerging trends in the industry and smartphone makers like Asus and Vivo have taken that into consideration already with Asus Zenfone 5Z and Vivo V9. Google’s upcoming Android P operating system has a provision for developers to create apps that can adopt this new design element. As a result, we can expect more smartphone manufacturers to follow in the footsteps of Apple in the coming weeks.
