The concept artist and leaker Ben Geskin has just shared that Apple has been on work for the prototype of at least an iPhone with a notch-free 6.7-inch screen, TrueDepth sensors for Face ID which is moved to the top thin bezel of the phone.
The leaker created the below rough concept to visualize the mysterious iPhone that is said to be unveiled next year.
Actually this is not the first time the information related to the 6.7-inch iPhone has surfaced online. At the beginning of this year, Ming-Chi Kuo said the firm intends to launch 6.7-inch, 6.1-inch and 5.4-inch iPhones next year, all with 5G connectivity support and OLED displays. He said the new iPhones will flaunt all-new design, however, he didn’t give any details on the notch.
He added the new iPhones will come with a new metal frame like the iPhone 4, which suggests that the frame could come with flat edges versus the round frame on iPhone X and the newer ones.
Previously, Debby Wu and Mark Gurman from Bloomberg have reported Apple plans to release an iPhone with an on-screen fingerprint sensor and Face ID next year if it achieved good results in testing. However, the report also cautioned that the on-screen fingerprint reading tech is not probably available until 2021.
As you may know, Geskin has had several right leaks before, including glass panels on the front of the iPhones launched last year that revealed the budget iPhone XR would sport a bit thicker bezels than its siblings iPhone XS Max and iPhone XS. However, as there has been no official information about the 2020 iPhones, we should take the above information with a pinch of salt.
