One of the market trends in 2017 was the screens. Seeking to have the highest percentage of frontal, the big manufacturers opted for a new format that allows them to obtain more screen in the same size.
You could say that the trend is up, since even the medium range terminals (such as the new Xiaomi Redmi 5) already opt for this new format, leaving the 16: 9 format that has been following us for years obsolete.
Analysis Huawei Mate 10: blunting in the price ratio of quality
We analyzed the Huawei Mate 10, a cell phone with artificial intelligence chip that surprises the camera and the power and has differentiating characteristics.
Huawei P11 will have "notch"
In this new wave of "whole screen" terminals, one of the most criticized was the iPhone X. In addition to the price, a notable element of this terminal is the well-known "notch" a space in the upper area that includes the front camera and the sensors needed for facial recognition.
Thanks to an exclusive XDA Developers a user discovered in the files of a Huawei testing firmware that there are references to a parameter, which refers to a notch .
This device would presumably be the Huawei P11, and would include a Samsung LCD panel with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels, following the well-known aspect ratio of 18: 9.
The name of your code would be EMILY, and in firmware user XDA found that this cell phone would use the Kirin 970 processor, accompanied by Android 8.0 Oreo with the EMUI customization layer 8.0. 1. Like Huawei Mate 10, it can use "PC mode" via a USB cable type C 3.1 through HDMI.
If you will copy something, do it right
The desire of Chinese brands to follow the path of Apple is well-known. Along the way, brands like Xiaomi or Huawei have managed to maintain a balance in the thin line separating the inspiration from the copy.
From my personal experience with Huawei mobiles, I would say that branding generally implements features that make some sense rather than "copy by copy"
And honestly, I do not think putting a "notch" is as bad an idea as it sounds. However, Apple's interpretation seems far from perfect, and we see it in those applications or content that do not fit perfectly into that design.
I hope the next Huawei P11 will know how to make sense of this controversial project.
