Nowadays we are reading up on a bunch of iPhone 12 rumors. Actually things got more interesting after Jonas Daehnert released his detailed render of the iPhone 12 Pro. The design showed similar elements to the current generation of iPad Pros while maintaining the integral design points from the iPhone series. People also had different opinions about it which we covered on our platform here.
Jon Prosser commented on how we may never see a USB-C port on an iPhone. He has been quite active in the current iPhone reveal. Speaking of that, he tweeted a while ago about the notch specification which he found. The original image was not very clear and therefore a clearer render was produced. The image is the schematic for the device, highlighting the ports and the buttons of the device.
Notch Your Problem
As the image on the right suggests, the notch is clearly almost half the size of the one found on the current generation. To do this, the company will have to fit in all the sensors in a tight space. The renders did show that the screen was closer to the edges this time around. Despite that, the image shows that the earpiece has been moved up to the edge of the device. clearly it saved a lot of room. The components are placed quite close to each other and to the edges too. It shows that there couldn’t be much compromise done. Unless the company finds an alternative for FaceID or manages to make the components smaller, this is the smallest notch we can expect.
As for the other arrangement, it looks pretty much the same from last year. While it is a good step to decrease the size of the notch, the design still looks a little dated. Considering how phones from OnePlus and Samsung look today, Apple just seems to return with a similar pizazz which just doesn’t do justice to the word, or Apple’s style, for that matter.
