The network has information about the latest Apple patent. Its essence is to create a technology that would allow the implementation of “invisible bangs” in the upcoming iPhone, as well as the Touch ID under-screen fingerprint scanner.
“Photodetectors integrated into integrated thin-film transistor boards” — this is about the title of a recent patent of the company. In short, the Cupertino’s are working on implementing the Face ID system directly “behind the display”, writes AppleInsider. At the same time, the new technology can also be used to create a sub—screen Touch ID-the same scanner that was implemented in Android smartphones back in 2019.
Recall that the latest leaks also claim that Apple is working hard on its own flexible smartphone. The device is expected in 2022, at the same time as the iPhone 13 line. Rumors attribute the new product to Apple Pencil support, as well as, possibly, a clamshell form factor in the manner of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip or Motorola RAZR.
