Additionally, Google also highlights that in order for cutouts to not intrude or negatively affect apps, two requirements are needed. Google wants to make sure that won't happen, and most importantly, that the full-screen experience won't be different on a notch-less Galaxy S9 versus a notched LG G7.
Second, devices may only have up to one cutout on each short edge of the device.
Notches, which are a way to achieve an edge-to-edge experience, suddenly cropped up in the industry after Apple made it mainstream with the iPhone X. Many users have shared aggravation over the feature, but with Google's latest development all such worries shall be put to rest.

You won't see multiple cutouts on a single edge, or more than two cutouts on a device. And in a recent Android Developers Blog post, Google described in greater detail what it's doing to enhance the functionality of modern displays, both with and without notches. And it says, "By default, in fullscreen or landscape orientation, the entire cutout area must be letterboxed".
Google has released the cutout rules as it moves closer to the Q3 final release of Android P and gives developers preview versions to test their apps for these and other Android designs through the Android developers preview releases. Smartphone makers could go that way in the future, leading to smartphones that are filled with entirely unnecessary notches. Someday the screen notch will be a distant memory, but until it is, we're going to have to deal with the notch as a design element to be lauded, not the necessary stopgap we all know it is.
"During our user research we have often seen status bars filled with icons on Android devices".
