Apple's India-made top-end iPhones to hit stores next month

Apple's India-made top-end iPhones to hit stores next month

Apple will be looking to completely remove the notch in the next two years.

With the new "rumored" iPhone to be made more affordable for the average consumer, it seems like the makers are trying to assume the role of its competing companies (and iOS) that are renowned for their lineup of both - luxurious and cost-effective smartphones that cater to all types of budget.

As this report Ming-Chi Kuo suggests what to expect from iPhones in 2020, another China-based investor note from Credit Suisse hints us that Apple might opt to a full-screen display without notch or whatsoever, and the respective screen suppliers for Apple have already started developing these full-screen panels. Apple will reportedly introduce its first 5G phone, add 3D sensing via rear camera, include a full-screen Touch ID and use OLED screens.

The analyst further believes that in 2021, Tim Cook-led company will launch three iPhones and none of them would feature a notch. The news outlet also claims that Apple will use its own under-screen fingerprinting technology rather than using a third-party component.

Note that these reports say nothing about the iPhones coming out this year - these will likely all have a notch and be quite similar to the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR. These devices will nearly certainly all be using "full-screen fingerprint authentication". It's about time Apple shifts away from the notch which debuted way back in 2017; which is a lifetime ago in the tech world.

Instead, the analysts predict the first notch-free iPhone will come in 2020, with the iPhone 12 series - but not all of them. It's also used on MacBook touchpads, and on the Apple Watch too.

Those planning to upgrade to this year's new iPhones, which are expected to debut in September, can expect to see a new triple-lens camera and an improved Face ID sensor among other features. The company is also working on a fourth iPhone with in-display Touch ID support aimed specifically at Chinese buyers.

"iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 are being exported in quantities of under 100,000 units a month", said Neil Shah, research director at Counterpoint Research, citing export data that the firm tracks.
