How about the iPhone 13? Joke goes, while we wait for the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 12 is already revealed, the designer Hasan Kaymak has already imagined the future iPhone of 2021 or 2022.
Always in a mastered style, Hasan offers a logical evolution of the iPhone X that we have known for 2 years. Exit the notch, all the front sensors are located under the screen, like what Oppo offers in a first prototype.
One button, no notch and centrally located photo sensor on iPhone 13
The iPhone 13 (or iPhone XIII) is here in black and white, also called "polar white". If the colors are rather classic, although worked, we especially note the changes of the iPhone of 2021.
First, the only and single button of iPhone 13 is placed on the edge. The latter serves both as an ignition button, but also for changing the volume. It therefore has three click zones. A good idea that could inspire Apple.
Then we find a real guts borderless, without notch or punch. The iPhone 13 thus hides the Face ID sensors and other Facetime cameras under the panel. By a system already described in this patent in 2017, Apple makes part of the pixels transparent to let light through when the user needs to use the front camera or identification by facial recognition.
Finally, we find the famous photo block imposing the back. Except that on the iPhone 13, Hasan thinks that the apple would pass 4 sensors and that the firm would have everything to center everything.
All in all, it's a very good iPhone that we have in front of us, but it seems to us essential that Apple work on its notch as soon as possible, ideally on the iPhone 12. The iPhone 11 is already freeze and go into production right now.
Would you recommend what developments for the new iPhone to come? What do you think is essential? A folding screen, a Touch ID under the screen, the end of the notch, the arrival of USB-C, …?
