It looks like Apple plans to equip the iPhone 15 Pro, which launches next year, with a selfie camera and face recognition sensor under the display.
While Apple wants to launch the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max with a slotted display, it looks like it has other plans for the iPhone 15 series. According to The Elec news website, which is also a reliable Korean source, Samsung Display in collaboration with OTI Lumionics is producing a new generation of selfie cameras under the screen, which we will initially see in the Galaxy Z Fold 5 next year. But it is said that in the second half of 2023, it will be used in the iPhone 15 Pro as well. Open. As a result, the screen stays completely clear. This allows Apple to embed Facebook sensors without any traces of it on the screen. With this new technology, the infrared sensor will be able to detect users' faces without any problems and the screen will not have any holes or scratches on it.
Since 2017, when Apple introduced the iPhone X, it has decided to change the design of its handsets after more than a decade and move towards designing products with a full screen display. Thus, the famous Touch ID was replaced by Facebook, and as a result, the edges of the top and bottom of the screen of Apple phones were removed. Instead, a relatively large notch was built into the top center of the display to house the selfie camera, proximity sensor, and face recognition sensors.
Apple used the design in four generations of its handsets. But at the same time, Android phone companies have launched many products with a display percentage of more than 90%. These companies use selfie cameras in small holes in the design of their phones, and because the biometric system of their phones is based on fingerprints and not face recognition, they hid the relevant sensor under the screen. Without the need for a notch or fringe at all. As a result, a large part of the display of these products is the display.
Apple users have repeatedly called for a change in the policy of the American company in the design of its phones, but Apple did not pay attention until it finally decided to replace the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max with Make a hole in the screen instead of a notch. Of course, the company's approach is a little different. Apple will reportedly install two holes in the two phones, one for the selfie camera and the other for the face recognition sensor, which is also relatively large.
The technology for making such displays is in Samsung's hands. The Korean company is a complete leader in this field, and no company can produce such displays for the phone as well. As a result, we often see Apple send orders for its display to the company, and according to reports, this does not seem to be going to change until next year.
Of course, it is said that LG has also been able to devise good methods for embedding a selfie camera under the screen, but it seems unlikely that it will be able to prepare them for real use before 2024. As a result, Samsung has the opportunity to work with one of the best and most innovative companies in the field, OTI Luminous, to provide everything it needs to satisfy its customers.
Your opinion in this regard What is? Will Apple really equip the iPhone 15 Pro with a camera and sensor under the screen?
