Google bans Android phones from having three or more notches



Google is building official notch support for Android P, but it's laying down some ground rules first: two notches is the limit.

In a blog post for developers yesterday, Android UI product manager Megan Potoski wrote that Google is working with device partners "to mandate a few requirements" for app compatibility purposes.

The mandate says that Android P phones can not have "more than two cutouts on a device." Only one notch is allowed per page, and notches are only allowed on the top and bottom edges.

At this point, we have not even seen phones with two notches, so the ban on tri- or quad-notch phones and left- and right-side notches are all theoretical. Men det var ikke sikkert, at apps fortsatte med at løbe ordentligt på disse strange nye skærme .

But it's worth noting that Google does not have complete control over Android, so it's not as though there can never be a phone with three or more notches. Google sa det virker med sine "device manufacturer partners", som sandsynligvis betyr at et firma med Play-butikken og andre Google-tjenester, som er inbyggt i enheten. That's most Android phones; men det er helt mulig, en fabrikant som ikke er bundet til Google's begrænsninger kan gå ud på egen hånd og gøre nogle multi-notch abomination.

Det virkelige punktet for disse begrænsninger er at sikre at apps vises korrekt, uanset hvilken enhed du henter . Because notches can cut into the area that an app sometimes displays in, Android P includes controls to let apps either avoid or embrace the notch.

By default, Android P will expand the status bar on the top of the screen, zodat het op de gehele notch gaat, in plaats van het afsnijden van een deel van een app. En in landscape mode, de notch zal zwart worden. "The good news is, for the most part, your app should work as intended on a cutout device," Potoski wrote.

But if app developers want to, they'll be able to embrace the notch and have their app wrapping around it. That's something you're probably more likely to see with maps, games, and other apps where you are not cutting anything out, and are instead adding screen space and creating a more immersive feeling.

You may have already seen this, since developers have been able to test out notch support in the Android P beta since May.

Google zegt Android er nu på 1

6 telefoner med noter fra.

Google siger Android er nu på 16 telefoner med noter fra 11 different companies, and that is likely to expand significantly in the coming year. Men, for det meste, vi kommer ikke til å se noen av de største Android telefon beslutningstakere å gå med deres notch count.
