Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Apple is rumored to be removing the notch on iPhones in the future. The company has reportedly partnered with Samsung, which has the technology to disappear the bangs above the screen.
Apple introduced its flagship notch for the first time since the appearance of the iPhone X. Until the iPhone 13, the cellphone screen was still decorated with a notch.
Samsung is reportedly planning to release a second-generation under-display camera technology on the Galaxy Fold 5. The screen division of the South Korean tech giant is said to be developing a new under-panel camera technology that is the cause of the death of the iPhone notch.
The Elec reports that Samsung has technology in development that allows Face ID and the front camera to work under the screen, quoted from Tech Spot, Friday (25/3/2022).
Analysts expect Samsung to use the new technology in its foldable lineup next year. Meanwhile, Apple has the potential to apply it to the iPhone 14 Pro model.
Previously, Samsung had integrated an under-display camera on the Galaxy Z Fold 3. The company is also rumored to be working with Canada-based OTI Lumionics for a next-generation project.
The latter company specializes in developing transparent technologies using a machine learning-based approach. As well as dedicating several years researching the cathode pattern method for IR and CMOS image sensors.
Apple is actually rumored to be able to include Face ID under the screen since some time ago. Prior to Samsung, it was reported that Apple would work closely with LG Display.
LG Display is known to develop the same technology, namely hiding the sensor under the screen. In its plans, LG wants to achieve 20% light transmittance by 2023 and 40% by 2024.
