When will you see a new iPhone with a completely undisturbed display? In 2024, renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts. By that time, Apple may be happy to move both the front camera and Face ID under the screen of its high-end device, and the iPhone 16 Pro could be the first candidate for such an upgrade.
Guo makes this prediction Tweet pairLinking to a comment he made last month, Apple said it’s unlikely that Apple will release a new iPhone with an underdisplay fingerprint reader in the next two years. (Guo previously predicted that this could happen as early as 2023.) Why? Now, Kuo’s framing is that the demand for Touch ID returns was primarily in response to the increase in mask wear.However, Apple made Face ID work better with masks earlier this year, so complaining about its usefulness. Almost gone..
I think the real full-screen iPhone will be available in 2024. The 2024 high-end iPhone will feature an underdisplay front camera along with an underdisplay Face ID. The quality of the front camera is adversely affected in dark places, and ISPs and algorithms are important to improve the quality. https://t.co/vWjeZYZUPK

I think this makes sense. My own experience with Face ID with a mask was good. Not surprisingly, it’s okay. In other words, you can live without Touch ID under the display. But a more interesting question is how Apple makes an underdisplay front camera. (And, as expected, it’s not just a drilling camera This year’s iPhone 14.. )
My colleague Sam Byford Under Display Camera Review In November 2021, the technology has improved, but there is a way to go until it matches the quality of the unhidden lens.
“The photos you get are definitely usable in most cases. If you’re not a big selfie photographer, or if you don’t use your phone for zoom calls, you can avoid that,” he said. Byford, an under-display camera for ZTE and Xiaomi, writes. “The quality of the video is also poor, because it’s probably too much to ask these phones to process in real time.”
Kuo himself suggests that the solution is to improve the ISP (Image Signal Processor) and image algorithms.As has been clear for many years, the image quality of the phone depends More and more digital processingAnd Apple continues to offer improvements to its cameras Year after year..
Kuo is also on this year’s iPhone 14 Upgraded front camera It has an autofocus function and a wider aperture. However, it’s not clear how Apple will handle the hardware required for Face ID for this model. Some suggest storing it in a pill-shaped notch before Apple is ready to move it under the display.
