Google and other Android vendors like to mock Apple’s ‘courageous’ decisions. For instance, Google was among the first to publicly make fun of the iPhone 7 that had ditched the 3.5mm headphone jack. A year later, the search engine giant removed the feature from its own Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. When Apple launched the iPhone X with a notch, Android vendors found one way or another to mock the cutout. A new report suggests Google might ’embrace’ the notch later this year with the launch of Pixel 3.

Android doesn’t currently support the notch, but many OEMs have launched phones with a top cutout to mimic the iPhone X design. Since the search engine giant makes its own smartphones, new Android versions offer clues regarding what the company has in store for the future smartphones. Mark Gurman of Bloomberg reports that the Android Pistachio Ice Cream will bring support for an iPhone X-like notch to Android.

It’s no guarantee that the Pixel 3 would feature a notch, but there is a strong possibility. Before launching Pixel 2 XL with an 18:9 aspect ratio, Google had asked developers to “take advantage of the larger aspect ratio” on other Android flagships, reports PCWorld. The company had introduced Google Now on Tap with Android Marshmallow before bringing Google Assistant. Android P will be rolled out with the Pixel 3.
