Unsurprisingly, a Oppo R15 sports an iPhone X-imitating arrangement notch, a underline sloping to underline on a arriving OnePlus flagship.

This screen will also exaggerate a 19:9 aspect ratio, a screenshots confirm, which is effectively 18:9 with a tiny additional space adult tip for a notch.
28/2/18: The OnePlus 6 will join growing series of Android inclination duplicating a iPhone X’s notch.
