OnePlus co-founder deletes "Learn to love the notch" patronizing tweet
OnePlus has officially revealed the first picture of its upcoming OnePlus 6 phone and lo and behold, it will have a notch quite similar to that of the iPhone X.

And while we have nothing against notches, it seems that OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei went a bit overboard with his attempts to justify a new-found love for the notch and has now deleted a somewhat patronizing tweet from two days ago:

Pei tweeted a provocative "learn to love the notch" and repeated the message verbatim in interviews, but it now seems that this kind of rhetoric has backfired as fans obviously did not like the company's new direction and Pei has now deleted the tweet.

Of course, this is not likely to change the fact that the OnePlus 6 is coming soon and it will still have a notch. This year, OnePlus expects to launch its new phone earlier than its traditional June release window. The handset is rumored to have the new Snapdragon 845 system chip on board, as well as a gesture-based navigation similar to that of the iPhone X, and yes, thankfully, it will also keep the headphone jack in tact.
