Despite promising not to offer a notch on its phones because, you know, Apple does it and Samsung’s not Apple, the South Korean-based smartphone manufacturer is getting ready to announce its first device with this controversial design element.
Called Samsung Galaxy M20, the phone’s notch can be spotted in a recent leak published by 91mobiles and which confirms that the only good thing about it is that Samsung at least isn’t going for a notch the size of the one on the iPhone X. Or worse, as large as Google Pixel 3 XL’s.
In fact, Samsung is trying to make the notch as discrete as possible on the M20, so it’s using a waterdrop style a la OnePlus 6T. Certainly, if Samsung really needs a notch on its smartphones, this is pretty much the best way to go, as it wouldn’t make it too intrusive.
