Apple’s iPhone 15 will have under-display Face ID (report)

The rumor: Apple is working on high-end iPhones with under-display Face ID, according to The Elec (66.7% accurate).


Here’s the report…

  • Both under-screen Face ID and a hole punch cutout are said to be present on iPhone 15 Pro models when they launch sometime in 2023
  • The display tech will reportedly be provided by Samsung, who plans to use it in their upcoming foldable phones
  • Prior reports said Apple was working on a truly all-screen design with no notch or cutouts at all for the 2023 iPhones…

Sam’s take: With the launch of this still well over a year away, I have no idea if Apple will actually be able to achieve the truly all screen design, or if this new info from The Elec will be closer to what we end up seeing (just a single camera hole punch). My gut says that this latest report is right, because there’s a part of me that believes a design like the one above is just too good to be true.
