Like every year, Apple is planning to launch a new iPhone that will be loaded with advanced technology and innovative design. The iPhones are expected to bring with them a number of new firsts for the industry, and some firsts for Apple. And now, some latest leaks suggest that the upcoming iPhone, most probably iPhone 12 will be coming with a notch-less display.
New patents of Apple iPhone has been registered that shows the iPhone’s display without any notch. he patents were first spotted by GoDigital which shows a device that looks like an iPhone but misses out on the notch. As from the patent, the new iPhone comes with a rectangular display with square corners. Notably, because of the lack of a notch on the device, the device appears to be missing the required hardware for Apple’s Face ID tech.
It is also interesting to note that there is no front-facing camera that usually sits inside the notch. So, it suggests that there will be a pop-up selfie camera. On the outside, the patents show the frame to house a power button, volume keys, and a physical notification switch just like an iPhone. There also appears to be a SIM tray that’s placed below the power key. But a new patent shows there will not be any physical buttons in the upcoming iPhone.
The report goes on to suggest that the device in question is the new iPhone for 2020. However, that does appear a little far fetched considering that Apple would have to bring about a radical design change in order to get rid of the notch.
As per some other reports, the redesigned Apple phone would bring in-display front-facing cameras and an in-display fingerprint scanner to counter the loss of the notch. As mentioned, it’s entirely possible that Apple has filed this patent to start work on a new phone that could be launched in the next 2-3 years. While it is still in expectation and will get more clearance in the future.
