New report claims Apple will dump the iPhone X notch in 2019
Citing industry sources, a new report from South Korea’s Electronic Times claims that Apple will abandon the notch of the iPhone X when it releases new phones in 2019. While none of the display’s specifications were confirmed by the publication’s sources, the screen will apparently “completely fill the front of new iPhones.”
In order to kill the notch, Apple would have to find somewhere else to place a wide variety of cameras and sensors, all of which currently reside in that space on the iPhone X. The report also claims that Apple will keep using Face ID in its 2019 models, which means that all the necessary sensors will need to be on the front of the phone.
