A new report claims to dish the dirt on Apple’s plans for its 2018 iPhone line-up, expected to arrive as usual around September time. According to the details, Apple will introduce an iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Plus as successor models to the iPhone X, reinstating the “s” iteration update moniker. In additon, there will be a “budget” model (relatively speaking, expect it to still be pricey) dubbed the iPhone 9.
The report also says they will ALL feature Face ID. Yup, regardless of price point, Apple is going all-in with its 3D face scanning hardware, implying that the whole range will ditch fingerprint scanners from now on and rely on the new TrueDepth facial recognition tech instead. This also means all the handsets will have the display “notch” to house the sensors. LG Innotek will be the supplier of 3D face scanning modules for Apple inside 2018.
It’s thought that while the iPhone Xs models will have edge-to-edge OLED displays, the iPhone 9 will also be edge-to-edge, but with an LCD panel.
A related report from analytics firm Atherton Research claims that in 2019 Apple will aim to shrink the display notch – it says current R&D is already working on making smaller TrueDepth face scanner sensors, so by late 2019 Apple will be able to make the notch housing smaller too.
The report goes on to suggest that Apple may reintroduce a fingerprint scanner at that stage, in addition to the face scanning tech, as recent breakthroughs in in-display fingerprint scanners mean one could easily be added back in for more diverse functionality.
