iPhone 16 Pro Could Introduce Under-Display Face ID

Apple could introduce under-display Face ID feature in the iPhone Pro, according to reports making rounds on Tuesday, January 11, 2023.

A Korean outlet, The Elec, appear to be the source of the news and we don’t expect Apple to confirm it anytime soon. Considering that the device is still almost two years away, we may have to wait a while to confirm rumours we hear about it. However, a supply chain analyst, known as Ross Young, had tweeted about the same detail in 2022.

An under-display Face ID will make the feature blend with the rest of the smartphone’s device when it is turned on, leaving only the selfie camera’s cutout.

Attempts to make under display cameras have met resounding failures all through the years. From ZTE to Samsung, the problem has always been the display interfering with the quality of pictures.

However, the Face ID feature is different from the selfie camera, it relies on TrueDepth infrared camera to recognise user’s faces. So, making it is a whole lot more difficult than designing under display selfie cameras.

If it achieves the under display Face ID, Apple could further hide the regular selfie camera under the panel as well. What this means is that it will be shipping smartphones without any cutout on the front. That development is still some years in the future.

With the Dynamic Island feature launched in iPhone 14, it is not clear what will happen in the future when there is no longer a need for the cutout or notch. What we are certain of is that iPhone 15 will see all its variants come with the feature along with USB-C.
