After removing Face ID, Apple will bring fingerprint sensor technology under the screen to the iPhone model it is developing exclusively for the Chinese market.
Yesterday, it was reported that Apple is developing a special iPhone version specifically for the Chinese market, with the aim of attracting the attention of users by removing Face ID to cut costs and Replace with Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
However, according to a latest report from The Global Times, the iPhone model Apple plans to launch in China will be equipped with a fingerprint sensor integrated under the screen, instead of the traditional Touch ID fingerprint sensor that we've seen on previous generations of iPhones. .
Apple has completely removed fingerprint sensors on its high-end iPhones, including iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. All three phones come with a "rabbit ears" design on the front, a selfie camera and TrueDepth sensor to recognize Face ID faces, replacing Touch ID sensors integrated into the Home button. Previous iPhone models.
In 2017, Apple was rumored to have tried to integrate the fingerprint sensor under the screen into the iPhone X, but since the technology was not ready, the company chose a shorter solution by equipping Face ID. . Chinese smartphone brands such as Huawei, Xiaomi, OPPO and Vivo have gone in the opposite direction, bringing fingerprint sensor technology under the screen to their high-end smartphones as well as mid-range.
According to the report, Apple's switch to using fingerprint sensors under the screen is thought to be because the price of sensors has dropped and the price gap between OLED and LCD panels is no longer far away. This strategy is adopted by domestic brands and seems to have paid off, making Apple lose a large market share in China for smartphones with prices below 5,000 yuan (about 16.9 million).
Remarkably, after the meetings between Apple and many suppliers in the supply chain in Europe in May, Barclays analysts have confirmed that the iPhone 2020 will have fingerprint sensor technology under the screen, no must be only in a certain area but also on the entire iPhone screen.
