2019 iPhones will Not have Under-Display Fingerprint sensors says, Ming-Chi Kuo.


The tech giant Apple is all set to launch the new 2018 iPhones on 12 September as the company has already sent the media invites for the launch event at the Apple’s park. The rumours are for years that the Apple is working on the Under Display fingerprint sensor but it did come up with the FaceID system on the iPhone X and the 2018 iPhones will also be equipped with the same system. However, it seems the 2019 iPhones will also not feature the under display fingerprint sensors.

Ming-Chi Kuo said, “All main Android brands currently treat FOD as the important function to differentiate themselves from iPhone (we expect 2H19 iPhone models will not support FOD). The reasons are as follows: (1) The user feedback on the iPhone is lower than expected. (2) The user feedback on the first FOD smartphone, Vivo’s X21 FOD version, is higher than expected, and (3) FOD is the best fingerprint recognition solution for the full-screen design which is necessary for a high-end smartphone.”
