by Dimitris Economou 0

In an overwhelming news stream that is bombarding readers with all the trending features of today’s smartphones, the “notch”, “waterdrop”, and “18:9” terms are found in every single article. However, there are still some models that come with traditional 16:9 displays like the recently released Cubot A5. Its screen is actually a traditional 16:9 format and the front fingerprint reader is a nostalgic note.
