Two punch holes instead of a slit? According to a well-known display analyst, Apple is apparently working on a drastic change in the design of the front camera for the “iPhone 14 Pro”. While it was recently said that the group will move parts of the True Depth Face ID module under the screen, there is now new speculation that the “Notch” on the new Pro models will be replaced with a round as well as a bead-slot should be the shape, where the components in question are stuck.
Once a bead, once in a circle
The “perforated” pill-shaped design instead of an indent was said to be the latest leaked look of the “iPhone 14 Pro”. However, this would have required Apple to succeed in bringing Face ID, including a dot matrix display device and other components, into an in-display design. But that doesn’t seem to work there It seems that the infrared camera is not suitable (yet).. That’s what Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) assumes, who has often been right in the past when it comes to Apple’s display technology. “Not this year,” he wrote on Twitter. “Now closer to 2023 or 2024 infrared below the plate.”
Young believes Apple will split the degree in two in the future. Thus, the pill-shaped aperture will be for a selfie camera, an infrared camera for a face ID, and a round aperture for a dot projector, which is the central element of face detection. Accordingly, Face ID will not completely go under the screen before the iPhone 15 Pro or iPhone 16 Pro. Thus Young’s statement coincides with a prediction by famous Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who had already claimed this in April of last year.
The ingredients already appeared in the fall
The double hole also fits picks from Apple’s supply chain, and Already appeared on Twitter in the fall. It appears to show the back of the screen and two holes in it – one round and one bead-shaped. The components are for 6.1 and 6.7 inch screens (“iPhone 14 Pro” and “iPhone 14 Pro Max”). The pictures do not show whether the plate is closed over the second round hole or if it is perforated.
With all this, one wonders what advantage Apple will have with the new design. There are a few punch-hole cameras on Android devices, but mostly in the form of a single, inconspicuous circular hole. The Apple variant would be significantly more turbulent and not necessarily an advantage over the most consistent degree. It also remains unclear how the software should deal with the two holes. Between the two there is very little room for potential content.
