When we thought we knew everything about the Essential Phone, it turned out to be different. The new smartphone will receive a notification LED indicator.
Recently, the Android maker's smartphone officially debuted. The Essential Phone will soon be sold in the US, but later will also appear on the international market. The Essential Phone does not hide any secrets from us when it comes to specs. Nevertheless, from the beginning we were not sure if the smartphone would get a light notification indicator. The published renderings lacked a visual look. Now you can safely say that the notification LED will definitely appear on the Essential Phone. This has been confirmed by the company in one of the tweets published from the official account. The notification LED is located to the left at the top of the screen where the camera's distinctive eyelet is located. According to the manufacturer, the notification display will be able to customize each user at will. Probably it will be possible from the system, ie Android.
Hi Paul, yes it does – to the left of the front camera notch. Please note, notification settings are controlled by the user.
