#3 Notch Design
This is quite a trend after the market accepted the iPhone X with a notch. Many leaks are circulating showing the notch display to the front. It is likely to be a choice as it provides the manufacturer with more screen real estate. With the craze for bigger displays and thin bezels becoming a necessity, the manufacturer may find this the way to house the sensors and front camera. OnePlus has always seen to have taken inspiration from the Oppo R series of phones. The OnePlus 5 was inspired by the latest Oppo R11 which looked identical to OnePlus 5 which launched later. The newly launched Oppo R15 can give us design hints of the upcoming OnePlus 6 which clearly shows a Notch Display. The design can see a revamp with the introduction of textured back as per a Tweet from Evan Blass
