2020 Apple iPhone to Come with Smaller Notch, In-Screen TouchID and 2021 iPhones to ditch FaceID: Report
Early this week, reports were suggesting what to expect from the Apple iPhones in 2020. Yes, not this year because it’s pretty evident by now that there aren’t any significant changes coming with the trio of iPhones coming in September, apart from the internals bump and rare triple cameras, at least that’s what the earlier leaked renders and reports say. The curiosity of what to expect in the future iPhones has been increased lately — thanks to analysts like Ming-Chi Kuo and JP Morgan.
While earlier reports from the Kuo has suggested that all iPhones in 2020 are capable of 5G and come with OLED panels, the latter had predicted that there would be ToF Rear camera sensors along with AR/VR Gaming capabilities for the iPhones next year. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has come up with a new report suggesting one of the iPhones in 2020 is expected to have a smaller selfie shooter, meaning a smaller notch for a better screen-to-body-ratio.
However, it still unclear out of four iPhones that are said to be introduced next year, which one would be featuring this new smaller notch. It is believed there’s a new cheaper iPhone model that is said to be coming with TouchID support and will be on the likes of iPhone 8 – might be the one featuring this new smaller notch in an LCD display. For those unaware, the other three iPhone models for next year would include a 6.7-inch, 6.1-inch, and a 5.4-inch OLED screen sizes and the cheaper model with an LCD, as aforementioned and likely to be targeted for Chinese markets only, according to an earlier report.
As this report Ming-Chi Kuo suggests what to expect from iPhones in 2020, another China-based investor note from Credit Suisse hints us that Apple might opt to a full-screen display without notch or whatsoever, and the respective screen suppliers for Apple have already started developing these full-screen panels. This also suggests that we could expect at least one iPhone without a notch in 2020. That said, the future iPhones in 2021 would completely use an in-screen fingerprint sensor (TouchID preferably), and it is believed that notch would be ditched completely along with FaceID authentication as well, according to the report, regardless this is still speculative.
While these reports are still in early stages, few other significant changes can be expected until the future iPhones go to the development phase. That said, this year’s trio of iPhones, which are incremental upgrades to 2019 iPhones are expected to unveil amid September along with the iOS 13 full release to the public as well.
