Next-Gen iPhones May Not Feature Notch Display, Face ID Authentication, Visible Front Camera


Apple will release the next generation of the iPhone in September 2020. But talks are doing the rounds about the new smartphones for the past many months. The smartphones will be the first 5G iPhones and will feature significant changes including design. The Cupertino based company has just filed a new patent. It suggests that the company might give new smartphones an all-new design. Apple may do away with the notch display design in the new models. The notch display was established with iPhone X. Apple may also remove the Face ID authentication and reintroduce the Touch ID. It will feature an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Rumors are doing the rounds that Apple will release four new iPhones in 2020. All four models will have OLED screens. The top model iPhone 12 Pro Max is said to do away with a visible front camera. It will come with an under-display front camera. The new technology has not been in implementation yet by the major players in the industry. Two Chinese tech giants Oppo and Xiaomi have only previewed it so far. It will be quite interesting how Apple will push to adopt this technology because it is known for producing some of the best consumer electronics which includes the iPhone.

Among the four expected models, one will sport a 5.4-inch display and two others will feature 6.1-inch displays. The fourth will have a 6.7-inch display and 5G connectivity. Apple is also mulling replacing wired earpods with wireless AirPodsin the new models. The company has serving wired earpods with iPhones for several years. Meanwhile, the 5G variant may come with advanced image sensor-shift stabilization technology. This will cut down the distortion to allow clicking stable images when there is excessive motion. Analysts believe the 5G variant will not be more expensive than the iPhone 11. But if all of these features are incorporates, Apple will have to rework to retain the competitive pricing. Apple significantly slashed the prices of 2019 iPhones to help push the demand.
