Future iPhones May Get Rid Of The Notch, Invisible Selfie Camera

There are several users who love the notch and some hate it, but also there’s no way to ignore the disturbing notch on top on the iPhone X and iPhone XS. Obviously, there is a reason why Apple decided to get rid of the notch in the upcoming iPhones next year.

However, Apple does its best to make the notch not so evident in its marketing materials for the iPhone XS but that does not change the fact that the devices still do come with a notch.

Notched devices like iPhones are temporary in nature until Apple gets around to figuring out a technology that allows it to place the front camera and IS sensor at the front of the device without a notch.

Right now, Largan Precision is doing the next best thing possible by developing a special invisible black coating for camera lenses. Usually, the selfie camera sensor is always visible in a notch but with this coating, Largan is hoping to change that. For now, this is the fact for upcoming iPhones, until OEMs find a better way to completely do away with the notch. This does seem like the best alternative solution to entirely hide the notch.


Largan Precision is not expected to start shipping this unique coating for camera lenses to customers by 2020 so there’s still a lot of time and a long wait here to witness.

By the way, Apple only offering the iPhone X and iPhone XS series with a black front as it hides the notch very well. Although when viewed from certain angles, the front-facing camera can be seen which Apple can get around to hiding with this new coating from Largan. The iDevice maker already sources its camera lenses from Precision and the technology could also become a favorite among many Chinese Android OEMs who have been launching smartphones with a waterdrop-notch design.

What do you say about the Notch RIP and invisible front camera sensor possibility?
