Apple’s 2020 iPhone is reportedly getting a smaller notch and a seven-piece lens system
Ming-Chi Kuo: “Can’t stop, won’t stop” – probably
In a recent report to investors (via MyDrivers), he’s expecting to see the 2020 iPhone utilize a smaller front-facing camera lens, essentially making the front-facing notch smaller – making room for a larger screen.
The report is a little light on details, but there are a few important takeaways
- Kuo predicts the 2020 iPhone’s design will change. It’s unclear if the notch has anything to do with this
- It’s more likely Apple won’t remove the notch entirely, but instead, just make it smaller
- Kuo says the 2020 iPhone’s rear-facing camera will feature a seven-piece lens system
I’m all for a smaller notch, but man, what about this rear-facing camera with a seven-piece lens system? How much real estate is that going to take up on the phone? Mockups of a new iPhone camera system have been met with mixed results.
Again, the report is a little light on the details, but there you have it. Again, these are just predictions. This isn’t anything official, but given Kuo’s track record, he’s usually right on the money.
