This is what a new iPhone might look like without bangs.
In early fall, Apple is likely to unveil a new generation of smartphones – the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro. The latter, according to insiders, will get rid of the “bangs” under the system of frontal sensors Face ID for face unlocking. And now, renders have appeared on the network, which shows the possible design without such a feature. PhoneArena writes about this.
The image above is supposedly the layout of the camera holes and the Face ID module in the iPhone 14 Pro / Pro Max. And on the render below, there is a visualization of such a solution, in which some of the sensors will be hidden under the matrix and invisible to users. As a result, future Apple smartphones can only get one oblong hole in the OLED panel, noticeable to the user. The earpiece grille will be located on the upper edge of the case.
The PhoneArena note adds that despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the need to wear face masks in most countries, there are no plans to embed a fingerprint scanner in upcoming Apple smartphones yet. Such fingerprint sensors cope better with user recognition when half of the face is constantly covered with something.
Recall: Apple is expected to present four smartphones in September: iPhone -14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The diagonal of the displays will be 6.1 inches for devices without a Max prefix and 6.7 inches for enlarged devices.
