In 2017, Apple in all respects iPhone X. the Smartphone was welcomed by the public is mixed – some
surprised by the high starting price of 999 dollars, others have questioned the convenience of technology Face ID, confused by the third “seizure” in the screen. Of course, the cutout in the display is difficult to call it an aesthetic decision, but at that time it was the only option, in which the front panel of the smartphone could accommodate advanced sensors TrueDepth. But technology does not stand still, and now in a version that will allow you to move all the sensors and Face ID directly under the screen.

iPhone without cutout in the display

Apple is ready to abandon the cutout in the display of the iPhone and for that it has all the necessary technology. This indirectly says a new patent-registered company. By the way, Apple development you can discuss in our Telegram chat.

New Apple patent

The paper describes the miniature components of the Face ID and the front camera, which can be embedded directly under the screen. So the sensors could capture the light in the substrate matrix will be used by tiny holes, the size of which is so small that they cannot be seen by the naked eye. However, these areas would be sufficient for proper operation proprietary face recognition technology and the front camera.

This is not the only patented design by Apple in this direction. In the Arsenal of the Corporation, there is another technology that can be used in a future iPhone. It is an innovative matrix, which can become transparent in certain areas, allowing the sensors TrueDepth to read all the necessary information.

Of course, to talk about any breakthrough too early — all development is described on paper only. Moreover, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11R, if you believe the rumors, will receive the same notch in the screen as before.

Design competition

It is noteworthy that the transparent matrix showed the Chinese company at the MWC 2019, announcing the exhibition of a prototype of a smartphone with podarennoe camera. However, this technology is still far from commercial use, because the picture quality from this camera is clearly inferior to traditional solutions with the openings in the screen and a camera with a rotating module.
