Kuo: 2020 iPhones will have a smaller notch

New Rumors Claim Apple to Launch Notchless iPhone in 2020

Kuo said that Apple will be reducing the camera-array size in the notch to give more usable area for viewing.

Moreover, it is also expected that Apple will introduce low-priced versions of iPhone by 2020. With the Trump administration continuing to play hardball on the issue, Apple is reportedly looking to move between 15-30 percent of its iPhone production outside of China to hedge its risks going forward.

Although the presence of a smaller notch indicates the absence of Face ID.

Apple appears to have begun exporting iPhones that are made in India to a handful of European markets.

Instead, the analysts predict the first notch-free iPhone will come in 2020, with the iPhone 12 series - but not all of them.


The 2020 iPhones will feature slimmer notches and one will have a notch-less design with all-screen fingerprint authentication. For those unaware, the other three iPhone models for next year would include a 6.7-inch, 6.1-inch, and a 5.4-inch OLED screen sizes and the cheaper model with an LCD, as aforementioned and likely to be targeted for Chinese markets only, according to an earlier report.

Discussion of Apple removing 3D Touch has taken place since the beginning of the year, leading up to analysts from Barclay's Bank talking to suppliers in China about the subject in May, where it was stated the feature would not arrive on any 2019 iPhone.

The iPhone X was launched in 2017 with its famous notch on the top. This new handset is expected to ship with an under-display camera as well as a full-screen acoustic fingerprint authentication system. While many competitors followed suit with notches on their own devices, they soon started finding clever ways to eliminate it altogether. It is a cornerstone of the Apple experience, but the whole Face ID module is rather large, so hiding it is an extremely hard task.

The report further states that Apple plans to do away with the Face ID entirely post 2021, and focus on improving the in-display fingerprint scanner.
