iPhones may not be getting the under-display face ID feature until 2025. A leaker has said that the sensor issue has reportedly pushed back the implementation of the said feature.
iPhones May Not Be Getting The Under-Display Face ID Feature Until 2025
The dream of finally getting an iPhone without a notch looked set for the coming year which is when the phone-making company’s analyst predicted that we would be getting all of the components that are needed for Face ID to be relocated just under the display. And right now, a leaker has said that we may just have to wait until 2025.
The main line of flagship iPhones majorly relies on a collection of sensors and this is including an infrared camera and infrared projector that simply works in concert with the front-facing camera that is situated just under the notch of the iPhone to help enable Face ID. Under-display Face ID has been “pushed at least a year to 2025 or later,” leaker Ross Young noted on Twitter and also added that sensor issues added greatly to the delay.
And since young did not talk more about what the sensor issues are, it is still unclear as to what is holding Apple back from just putting everything under the display.
Why iPhones have Not Yet Gotten Rid of the Notch
Although iPhones have not yet gotten rid of the notch, the company shrunk the wide black band at the top of its premium phones recently. The higher-end iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max on the other hand packed a new feature, Dynamic Island which as you should now know, hid and repurposed the notch space partially to use as a miniature control panel for both media and apps.
The ZTE Axon 20 5G Became the First Phone with an Under-Display Front Camera in the World
The ZTE Axon 20 5G which was released back in 2020 became the first phone with an under-display front camera in the world, but the selfies that it however took were underwhelming. More premium android phones already have started to make use of under-display cameras, however, including the foldable Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Fold 4, as well as the popular RedMagic 7S Pro.
