Apple’s 2020 iPhone could drop the notch and Face ID

iPhone Without A Notch? It Could Happen In 2020, Says Report

Apple iPhone 12 could feature all-screen, no notch

However, the same can not be said about the notches on phones from other brands, they simply wanted to look like the iPhone at best. But it appears as though Apple's iPhone designs may eventually get notchless this season. Digitimes writes that Chipbond Technology, who builds driver chips for LCD panels, received orders for two LCD devices, and this is considered evidence that Apple plans to launch a duo of iPhone SE 2 models. Kuo in the past has suggested that the iPhone SE 2 will be launched at the end of March and may be priced at $399, which roughly converts to Rs 28,400.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has suggested that the iPhone 9 (as I will call it for now) will combine the iPhone 8 form factor with similar internals as the iPhone 11.

As for the other four, recent reports have suggested that Apple will release four OLED iPhone models this year. The iPhone SE2 Plus will come out in 2021. Apple had introduced the notch design with 2017's iPhone X, which has been a feature of new iPhones since. The first involves fitting the phone with a large 5.5-inch display that's probably paired with thick bezels and a Touch ID home button, whereas the second option centers around a 6.1-inch screen coupled with slimmer bezels and a notch.

Apple has registered a patent in December 2019 which indicates the front panel design of the upcoming Apple iPhone 2020. However, Apple is already signaling that a massive iPhone makeover is on the way, but it's unclear whether we should expect it in fall 2020 or later down the road.

A new report about the Touch ID reader being integrated into the display and Face ID being dropped altogether was cited in a presentation by Credit Suisse spotted by China Times. The device seems to have no notch, front camera or Face ID hardware. It is expected that all four models are also compatible with 5G and will look the same as the iPhone 11 line.

Rumors about the return of the much-loved iPhone SE keep coming up every year, but 2020 could finally be the right one.
