Apple's mobile devices have undergone significant changes in recent years, especially in their external design. IPhone, for example, leave the original frames and a startup button to accept a wide screen that can handle any content. Nevertheless, there is something left to hide in order to reach the ideal, TrueDepth sensor. After leaving the ID behind, it is permissible to obtain a new type of biometric security with the Security ID.
However, while there is some comfort and speed to offer, for many it does not end up being anything else compared to Touch ID, and that is something Apple knows. For this reason, it seems that among the company's plans could be the return of technology to the iPhone. At least model with an LCD panel, which would place the fingerprint sensor on the power / lock buttons. Because of this, the notch would disappear completely.
Of course, this model may be priced lower than other models, in the same way as the iPhone 11 and iPhone XR. The main difference will also be screen technology, its hardware, cameras, and is now a sensor used to open biometric. However, as mentioned in MacRumors, the plans are for the 2021 model, which would arrive in the first half of the year, according to data from Ming-Chi Kuo.

In the meantime, the closest release is the keyword optimization possible in March, when we would know it was the iPhone 9, that will have the design of the iPhone 8. We are expecting further improvements, but it will not be until next year that we see this phone so interesting that it will allow us to have a full screen for the first time without the TrueDepth sensor notch.
