IPhone 12 could finally see Apple drop the notch

Face ID

Since there will be no notch, Apple will reportedly place the front camera under the display.

Such advancements would put the iPhone on a more level playing field with Android rivals like Samsung and OnePlus that have already been minimising the notch.

Ramping up manufacturing in India will also help Apple fulfill local sourcing norms, a necessary criterion for opening its own stores in India.

Kuo's note suggests that Apple's 2020 iPhones will feature a smaller front-facing camera cutout, therefore reducing the size of the notch. The latest hint this may happen comes from an industry report on revenue performance for manufacturers making the modules that enable 3D Touch, stating that although "Apple may remove 3D touch sensors from all 2019 iPhone devices", sales for these companies may still grow. Separately, a different report said Apple has four iPhones in the works for 2020, including a cheaper iPhone 8 replacement, without saying anything about the potential return of Touch ID.

Samsung, for example, implemented a new hole punch-like design in the displays of its new Galaxy S10 phones, which is less noticeable than the bezels on the Galaxy S9 and notches on rival phones.

He also said that the 2020 iPhones will be undergoing a design change however, it is unclear from the report if these changes pertain only to the notch or the entire iPhone in general.

Although Kuo's claim of Apple working on a smaller notch on the upcoming iPhone is believable, rumors of them getting rid of Face ID entirely should be taken with skepticism.

The new range of iPhones are expected to feature OLED displays with varying screen sizes of 5.4-inches, 6.1-inches and 6.7-inches. This new handset is expected to ship with an under-display camera as well as a full-screen acoustic fingerprint authentication system. It's about time Apple shifts away from the notch which debuted way back in 2017; which is a lifetime ago in the tech world.

However an advert released earlier this week, Apple claims that their Face ID is "safer and easier" than Touch ID.
