OPPO joins the “Notch” Craze with latest device, Oppo R15

OPPO R15 also has a notch??

Most flagship phones that have been released or are yet to be released in 2018 look like this.


Too vague?

Let me make it more  obvious.

This seems to be the latest trend amongst most phone companies these days.

“You’ve got to have a notch to look cool” is what these brands are trying to tell us, but the question is, are we buying into that?

The latest addition to the notch craze is from OPPO mobile, as they announced their newest device Oppo R15.

Given this announcement, the next OnePlus device (since Oneplus usually sources designs from Oppo) would likely be looking like the Oppo R15 as previous OnePlus devices hold resemblances to previous oppo devices.

The R15’s specs include a 6.28-inch, 2280 x 1080 OLED panel with slim bezels, a 3,450mAh battery, and a MediaTek Helio P60 processor. it would sell for around $475 USD, that should be around GHS 2137. There’s also a premium “Dream Mirror edition” that will cost about $45 more, comes in a ceramic body, and would be powered by a Snapdragon 660.

The regular R15 comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and runs Android 8.1 Oreo. It has dual 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel rear-facing cameras and a front 20-megapixel camera, while the Dream Mirror edition keeps the same front camera and gets a higher 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel combo for the rear.

Pretty impressive specs though and the camera looks very promising.. can i hear a smartphone photographer say AMEN?

I’m not against getting ideas from other places to create something new but are we exactly comfortable with this trend and must everyone be a “notch” ahead?

Others actually prefer the whole notch feel whilst some of us just aren’t.

What would you personally prefer?

On this notch note, let’s hope the next new device from a phone brand has more to it than just notches.
