Apple to launch one notch-less iPhone in 2020, three in 2021

New Rumors Claim Apple to Launch Notchless iPhone in 2020

The 2019 iPhone has received mixed opinions even before its launch with a majority suggesting they will skip this generation in favour for the 2020 iPhone. In a new research note via Chinese website MyDrivers, the analyst notes that one of next year's iPhones will have a smaller front camera lens, resulting in a better screen-to-bezel ratio. This seems to suggest that although the notch will be there, it will be smaller and slimmer. According to a reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, in a published, she says that at least one of the new iPhones planning to launch in 2020 will be slimming down their notch. Apple will reportedly introduce its first 5G phone, add 3D sensing via rear camera, include a full-screen Touch ID and use OLED screens. This could most likely be an enhanced version of the in-display fingerprint sensor that will work anywhere across the screen.

A separate piece of intelligence from Credit Suisse reveals that Apple's screen suppliers in China are working on "full-screen displays". As per reports, Apple is all set to develop its under-screen fingerprinting technology rather than rely on a third-party provider.

The TrueDepth camera that powers Face ID requires several front-facing sensors that occupy plenty of space, hence the need for a notch. They are also expected to be around the size of iPhone 8 with similar design features as iPhone X - but of course in a minimalistic way. The analyst shared no details as to what design changes to expect, including if the changes will be related to the notch or to the overall form factor.


The US-China trade war has forced Apple, among other major brands to explore the option of shifting it production out of China, according to a report by Nikkei Asian Review. "It is also early, so these plans could change". As indicated, Apple's display providers are developing edge-to-edge screens without notches.

As per the report, Apple's contract manufacturer Wistron Corp's India arm, which began assembling iPhones in the country back in 2016, has become the first of Apple's contract makers to export iPhones from its facility in Bengaluru.
