According to a new report, Apple is said to be developing a new high-end iPhone model and may launch it this year. The device is expected to feature an in-display Touch ID fingerprint sensor, instead of Face ID like the current iPhone 11 models. In addition, the selfie camera will also be hidden below the screen.
Previously, famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also revealed that Apple is planning to bring Touch ID on its future iPhone models. However, he did not expect this to happen before 2021 and insisted that it would not be able to replace Face ID.
Market research firm Credit Swiss, meanwhile, believes that Apple will launch a high-end iPhone with Touch ID built-in under the screen this year in the iPhone 12 lineup. It will allow the brand to remove Face ID feature on future iPhone models.
Not only does it have a fingerprint sensor, but reports from LetsGoDigital said the new under-display selfie camera will also be a feature that Apple plans to equip on its products, although it will only appear on the top-end models in the iPhone 12 series. These changes will help the company completely eliminate the notch at the top of the screen, bringing an iPhone with a beautiful borderless design.
While everyone is expecting an iPhone with a full-screen design and this is also a future that Apple is aiming for, it seems that the iPhone with Touch ID fingerprint sensor and under-display selfie camera are not possible to come true in 2020 for a variety of reasons.
First, many major rivals like Samsung have previously proven that the fingerprint sensor embedded under the screen is unreliable. On the other hand, we still haven't seen a commercial smartphone with a hidden camera under the screen at the moment.
Also, even if Apple could integrate Touch ID into future iPhone models, it is almost certain that the company will not completely eliminate Face ID. So far, Apple has taken the security issue seriously, and this is one of the reasons why it doesn't remove Face ID on its products, to replace it with another technology with less security.
