Vivo X23 might feature a “water droplet” notch
Tiny rounded notch is a welcome sight visually but suggests a lack of 3D facial recognition tech
The “water droplet” notch is catching on.
Photos circulating on Chinese social media show what’s believed to be the upcoming Vivo X23, featuring a tiny curved notch that’s shaped somewhat like a drop of water -- hence its nickname in China.
While the iPhone X has inspired an army of Android copycats with nearly identical notches, most failed to copy two essential elements of the design: 3D facial recognition, and the lack of a “chin” -- the thick bottom bezel.
