Apple plans to launch an affordable-range of iPhone in 2020

Apple iPhone 11 concept renders Apple plans to launch an affordable-range of iPhone in 2020

Next year's iPhones will have a smaller notch cutout, according to a recent note from well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

For Apple, the notch houses the TrueDepth camera system. The iPhone X (Review) notch started a never-ending debate on how intrusive it felt on the screen. With the Trump administration continuing to play hardball on the issue, Apple is reportedly looking to move between 15-30 percent of its iPhone production outside of China to hedge its risks going forward. That said, the future iPhones in 2021 would completely use an in-screen fingerprint sensor (TouchID preferably), and it is believed that notch would be ditched completely along with FaceID authentication as well, according to the report, regardless this is still speculative.

Apple appears to have begun exporting iPhones that are made in India to a handful of European markets.

Apple might change the screen to body ratio of its upcoming iPhone series in 2020. It is also not clear if the smaller notch design will extend to all iPhone models next year or to just one.

As rumored Apple is anticipated to come with an entirely new line up including three new OLED models with screen sizes of 6.7-inches, 5.4-inches, and 6.1-inches.

Coming back to the Credit Suisse investor note, it also claims that by 2021, the new iPhone models will use in-display fingerprint sensor and skip Face ID to provide the true full screen experience.

Moreover, Chinese smartphone makers such as Oppo and Xiaomi already showcased phones with under-screen front cameras.

Apple changed how phones were designed when it released the iPhone X in 2017 and introduced the world to the notched displays. But this year we are seeing many smartphones with designs from edge to edge thanks to camera mechanisms emerge. It is a cornerstone of the Apple experience, but the whole Face ID module is rather large, so hiding it is an extremely hard task. Earlier this week, Apple released an ad touting Face ID as a much better option than Touch ID.
