Apple Has Prototyped 6.7-inch iPhone with Face ID Moved to Upper Bezel

Apple is arguably the first company that helped smartphone display notches go mainstream. As always Apple’s rivals hated it in the beginning and later started implementing a similar design on their phones. The company has now prototyped a new iPhone with a 6.7-inch display and no notch.

Ben Geskin is the mind behind the render and he created it to help us visualize new iPhone which will be launched in 2020. That apart we have numerous reports that hint at an iPhone with a 6.7-inch display. Popular Apple analyst Ming-Chi also said that Apple will release 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhones in 2020. Needless to say, the 2020 iPhones will arrive with 5G support. Furthermore, Kuo’s latest report also says that the 2020 iPhones chassis design will look similar to iPhone 4.

2020 iPhones are also expected to arrive with an In-Display Touch ID sensor which will exist alongside the Face ID. Apple ditched Touch ID with the iPhone X in 2017 and completely eliminated it from its iPhone and iPad lineup last year. While Face ID has improved dramatically since its original launch, it does fail to work in some scenarios. Then there is also the fact that it is simply not as convenient to use as Touch ID in certain situations.

Our Take

Since the last couple of years, Apple is trying out new screen sizes for the iPhone. Beginning in 2017, the company started releasing three iPhones and in 2018 Apple launched iPhone XR and positioned it as an entry-level device. Apple has continued with the tradition and even this year they have launched three iPhones and tweaked the naming convention. All said and done, it seems like Apple is doing all that it can to fight saturation and innovative features are perhaps the best way to lead the race.
