THE notch was introduced in 2017 with the launch of the iPhone X, but it has always been a controversial point among Apple fans. Those who advocate the disappearance of this option will be able to see their wishes fulfilled as early as next year.
Who says it is the renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. In his most recent note to investors, he points out some Apple options for the coming years, one of the most relevant being the abandonment of notch.
Apple should replace notch with punch-hole already next year
In place of the unloved notch, Apple should punch-hole, also known as a hole in the screen. Thus, the iPhone should assume an aspect similar to Samsung’s equipment.
Ming-Chi Kuo says that this option should be aimed at the Pro models of 2022. However, if production is satisfactory, Apple is considering extending the option to all models that will integrate its line of tops next year.
The adoption of punch-hole raises questions about the future of Face ID, the main reason for the existence of the notch. It is not yet certain what will happen to this technology, but patents submitted by Apple point to the incorporation of sensors necessary for its operation under the screen.
Therefore, the existence of the hole in the screen will be attached only by the front camera of the iPhone. At least until Apple is able to embed this component on the iPhone screen and provide results worthy of its status.
iPhone without any interruption in the screen only in 2023
Those who yearn for the launch of an iPhone without any interruption on the screen, will have to wait a little longer. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, this will happen a year later, in 2023.
However, the caveat is that this may not happen this year, if its development encounters problems. In this case, Kuo does not provide any timetable for the event.
In 2023, it should still be the year that Apple will finally put a periscopic lens on its iPhone. Such a component will considerably improve the zoom quality in the brand’s equipment.
