The notch will remain on the iPhone until at least 2022. Experts say that Apple will not abandon it’s iconic and criticized ‘notch’ until it can integrate Face ID without concessions under the display for some more time.
In the beginning many people disagreed about the need to implement notches on the screens of smartphones. In fact, on Android, many manufacturers have also been exploring options for some time to eliminate a notch that only Apple seems to like.
Apple is still comfortable with a notch that they will not abandon with the hypothetical iPhone 13 that we will see this year.
Famous Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated that neither iPhone 13 nor iPhone 14, but that the first Apple smartphone without notch will be launched within two years. This possible iPhone 15 will have a front screen, without holes or a noth, with all its components integrated under the panel perfectly hidden.
Industry analysts say that Apple will continue to rely on Face ID exclusively, and that is why there will be no iPhone without a notch until the sensors are ready to work perfectly from under the OLED panel.
Future iPhones will hold 48MP cameras and shoot 8K video
Also, it is expected that the notch of the iPhone 13 of 2021 will be smaller than the current one, as it seems that Apple has found a way to miniaturize and/or better integrate the TrueDepth sensors used by Face ID.
For now, it seems that the tech giant will settle for giving its main camera one more twist, with a new 48MP main sensor and more resolution, up to 8K, to record videos at an almost professional level. LiDAR and binning capability will be maintained to combine 4 pixels and obtain images at 12MP with the maximum possible light information.
It remains to be seen how many frames per second it will be able to record in 8K, as the current iPhone 12 Pro Max can reach 24, 30, or 60 FPS in 4K.
