Now You Can Put iPhone X ‘Notch’ To Any Android Phone
It turns out you don’t need to spend $999 to get the iPhone X’s most prominent features.
No, not the talking Animoji or slightly creepy face scanning, but the notch. A bored developer has created an Android app that brings the iPhone X’s distinctive camera cutout to Android handsets.
Called “XOutof10,” the app doesn’t actually do anything, other than creating a black space around the top of the screen to mimic Apple’s sensor-packed notch.
“You, the average Android user, probably had a laugh on Apple users about the new camera bump that covers the screen’s content,” the developer writes on GitHub. “Well, you won’t pay 999$ just to test it. And now, you don’t need to!”
If you want to try the iPhone-like notch for yourself, the developer has put the download up on GitHub so anyone can download it. Note that it’s compatible with Android Marshmallow and higher and that if you’re running Android Oreo, the so-called “bump” won’t display when you pull down the status bar.
