It’s hard to say who is more – supporters or opponents of the cutout in the screen, but the fact is that there are more and more smartphones with this feature on the market. Of course, the most recognizable is the iPhone X, and most likely, over time, the whole world will shout “Huawei copied Apple,” because the successor to the Huawei P10 will also have a “hole” in the display.
One of our sources found mention in the system files of the cut-out in the display, he shared his discovery with XDA-Developers. In one file, he found the word notch, which means a groove. In addition, these files also report that the smartphone has an LCD display with a diagonal of 6.01 inches and a resolution of Full HD +, that is 2160 × 1080 pixels, yes, as you may have guessed, it will almost not have frames. But there are also other files that indicate that the actual screen resolution is 2244 × 1080, which clearly confirms the cutout.
The source also said that the new device is being developed under the code name EMILY, and that the manufacturer is preparing four versions labeled EML-AL00, EML-L09, EML-L29 and EML-TL00, two of which must go to Europe. We also learned that the smartphone is running the Android 8.0 operating system Oreo with the EMUI 8.0.1 interface, which works thanks to the HiSilicon Kirin 970 processor. And it also received USB Type C 3.1.
By the way, it is worth mentioning one more issue, namely the name of the successor of Huawei P10. Most people believe that it will be called simply Huawei P11, but it is possible that the smartphone will make its debut as Huawei P20. Chinese manufacturers like to play with numbering, but this is not just a guess, as the manufacturer has some time ago booked the Huawei P20 trademark. But to find out how everything will actually be, we need to wait for information from more reliable sources.
