For a long time, smartphone makers have been trying to get rid of bezels. This has been countered with the help of notches and cut-outs in phone screens to extend the screen real estate while making room for the front camera. The latest in pushing the screen boundaries is a punch-hole camera which is unobtrusive and doesn’t get in the way like most other camera notches. These are the best smartphones with a punch-hole notch.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is one of the most innovative smartphones out there today. This smartphone can fold up into a very small and compact size, and what’s neat is that it has a nifty display on the exterior that can show you notifications, alerts, and more. When fully open, the smartphone features a 6.7-inch dynamic Super AMOLED screen with an adaptive refresh rate of up to 120Hz. The screen has a punch hole cut-out at the top which houses a 10-megapixel front camera. The best part is that the phone’s 6.7-inch screen can be folded up meaning you have a highly portable phone with a large display always at your fingertips.
Vivo X60 Pro
Here is a smartphone built for power users who love to get the most out of their smartphones. It packs in a 6.5-inch AMOLED screen which is almost uninterrupted thanks to the minuscule punch-hole cutout to house the front camera. This ensures that you have more screen space to work with, meaning you can multitask, and run apps on split-screen too while seeing everything important. To power your multitasking needs on the smartphone, the smartphone comes with 12GB of RAM backed by a Snapdragon 870 octa-core processor which helps in keeping the phone responsive and snappy. At the back, there are three cameras that can help give you professional photo results.
OnePlus Nord 2 5G
This is a value for money smartphone which offers one of the best software experiences on an Android smartphone. It features the OnePlus’ OxygenOS 11.3 version of Android 11 which is optimized to run smoothly and efficiently, while also being lightweight and responsive. At the front, you get a very modern-looking display with a punch hole cut out to the top left side of the screen. This means that you can use almost all of the 6.4-inch 90Hz refresh rate display to view content and run applications.
Redmi Note 10S
On a budget and want to get a smartphone that has a nice display with a punch-hole cut-out for the front camera? This is quite a good pick for the price. It offers a high-performance chipset, along with ample RAM to help you multitask and get through an entire day’s work. The 6GB of RAM is enough to let you game and watch videos with ease while the Super AMOLED 6.4-inch screen augments on-screen visuals. Under the hood, it is powered by a MediaTek Helio G95 Octa-core processor that keeps things fast, responsive and snappy. All in all, this phone offers really good functionality for the price you can pick it up at.
