Apple will release iPhone with a fingerprint sensor

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Next year, Apple will follow the lead of Huawei, OnePlus, Samsung, and other Android manufacturers by launching an iPhone with an on-screen fingerprint scanner. So, in new devices, the Touch ID biometric sensor, which the latest models lack, and the Face ID face recognition system will be adjacent to each other.

The output of iPhones with a built-in scanner for the display is scheduled for 2020, reports Bloomberg with reference to informed sources. Apple suppliers were able to integrate this technology into smartphones, insiders say, but the company itself has not yet been able to debug serial production. In this regard, the release date may be delayed until 2021.

The Home key, which Touch ID was previously built into, has been an integral attribute of the iPhone since 2007. However, since 2017, new models of Apple smartphones have been released without this button. By depriving a fingerprint sensor device, the company was able to increase the display area, and in return offered users a face-by-face input system Face ID.

By the 2020 release, Apple supposedly outlined three smartphones, each of which will have an OLED panel and a 5G modem . The smallest model will receive a 5.4-inch display, while the largest diagonal will increase to 6.7 inches. Also, probably, the new generation of the TrueDepth front-facing camera will reduce the “bangs”.

In addition, Bloomberg sources confirmed rumors about Apple’s plans to revive the iPhone SE – a line of “low-cost” smartphones, which were discontinued at the end of last year. The new “will be similar to the iPhone 8 and equipped with a 4.7-inch display,” as well as the “Home” key with integrated Touch ID, insiders said. A re-released SE version is expected in the first half of 2020.

This year, new iPhones will be presented next week, September 10th.
