Apple reportedly looking to improve the design of the iPhone.
As the most controversial iPhone change for years, the notch of the new iPhone X may be reduced, but not completely eliminated in the 2019 line. According to unconfirmed reports at the ETNews in Korea, Apple may be combining the Face ID sensors and the front-facing camera in order to make the notch smaller and less annoying.
It’s confusing to hear that Apple will try to resolve a problem that has been created deliberately in 2017 in order to make the 10th anniversary model stands out from the crowd. But while companies will embrace the fingerprint reader behind the glass in 2018, Apple clearly bets on Face ID for its smartphones, hoping to improve the feature in the next few years.
While the notch may be reduced in 2019, this year’s lineup will feature a second-gen iPhone X, the first generation iPhone X Plus, and a model with cheaper price and a 6.1 inch LCD screen. The iPhone X 2018 will have the same 5.8-inch screen and the notch, while the bigger model may have a giant 6.5-inch OLED panel.
Do you like the iPhone X notch, and what do you think about Apple reducing its size?
