The selfie camera and facial recognition cutouts on Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro are cleverly hidden in a new method that also makes the space useful for the user interface. Many people are undoubtedly interested in Dynamic Island, and it appears that certain Android manufacturers have plans to create their own versions of the functionality.
A version of Dynamic Island for its Android phones has been announced very explicitly by Realme, a sub-brand of Oppo, over the previous few days.
Realme challenges its users to assist in building a Realme Island that grows from the hole-punch selfie camera in an forum post . The brand notes that this area, which morphs into various forms and sizes from around the camera, may be used to display incoming phone calls, alarms, notifications, and more.
This sounds a lot like how Apple is using the Dynamic Island , but with potentially more key components shown in that UI. On iPhones, the Dynamic Island displays information like as minimized app views, currently playing music, and more; however, Android users would undoubtedly use the Realmes version more frequently.
In an Weibo post (via Gadgets360 ), Xiaomi President Lu Weibing also noted a user request for a Smart Island feature, but the firm hasn’t made any clear intentions to include a Dynamic Island ripoff.
Given that the majority of contemporary Android phones already have a comparable, but much smaller cutout on the display, it is not surprising that manufacturers of Android devices are working to replicate Apple’s new feature.
In order to achieve this, there is already been several fan-created mods for Android, which gives the OS a Dynamic Island experience. Right now, the only remaining question is who will formally implement this functionality first.
