New information has surfaced online indicating that HMD Global is looking at dropping the notch design on its future smartphones. This means that the company will possibly move to an in-display camera or a dot cut-out in the display, something that Samsung has already teased for its future smartphones. HMD Global is likely to launch the Nokia 6.2 next year after the launch of its much-awaited Nokia 9 PureView. For context, display notches have gradually turned into a stand-out feature for almost all smartphones. This design trend caught the mainstream after Apple launched its iPhone X with that notch.
