Apple has scheduled an event for next week when we expect to see four new iPhones. The rumor mill has been silent on the topic of punch holes and notches, leading to the assumption the iPhone 12 lineup will keep the wide notch that has been part of the screen in the past three years.
A popular leakster revealed on Twitter the notch will be present not only on the iPhone 12, but on the 2021 iPhone 13 as well, although it will get a bit smaller next year.
We know it is way too early to make such predictions about a phone, expected to arrive in no less than 12 months, but Ice universe has been reliable and has provided inside information for quite some time, so this one might also end up true.
Apple is clearly not following the trends of holes or waterdrops that others are implementing and will stick to Face ID a bit more. Cupertino is clearly betting on design and is not implementing the solutions like a pill-shaped cutoff that houses all the facial recognition tools, something that Huawei does.
We suspect that Apple will keep up with the infamous notch until the under-display camera becomes mainstream - it is still a boutique feature that can be found in only one smartphone sold in a single market.
If Face ID is here to stay, there is no way to get rid of the notch. It could me smaller but it would be there. The only solution is to bring back Touch ID and put it underscreen, which is technically possible already.
Disagree, both OS work well out of the box. Android just offers deep customization and further tinkering ability in addition to it. Nobody has to tinker their Android phones to make it work flawlessly out of the box unless they are under 50$.
