OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro get camera cutout battery indicators courtesy of Energy Ring

Energy Ring is a fun way to put the unsightly hole-punch cameras on smartphone screens to better use, turning them into battery indicators. But the app maker’s close association with Samsung flagships so far, possibly due to their enormous global userbase, has meant that other phone users felt left out. In a change of course, the super customizable app is putting an end to this exclusivity, and is now adding support for its first non-Samsung phones: the newly announced OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro.

Honor View20 review: Flagship performance and photography for a more palatable price

Since Samsung unveiled the Infinity-O display, anticipation has been building for notchless phones with what's become known as the hole-punch camera cutout. The View20, from Huawei sub-brand Honor, was unveiled in Paris today for the European market after debuting in Hong Kong at the end of 2018. From a purely aesthetic point of view, it's certainly refreshing. The 4.5mm camera hole might not be quite as inconspicuous as Honor's marketing materials would have us believe, but it's got to be better than a notch, right?

The other major selling point of the View20 is that it's the first phone to ship with a 48MP camera sensor — the Sony IMX586 CMOS — with tiny 0.8 μm pixels.
