There are still a few months to go before the launch of the new line of smartphones from Apple, but the hearsay on the iPhone 13 do not stop. The most recent show the return of the fingerprint sensor touch ID, a probable exit from the facial recognition system Face ID and the end of the notch at the top of the screen.

Without the famous “notch”, the iPhone 13 will be the first Apple phone with the screen to occupy the entire front of the device. Images leaked so far do not show a notch, drop or any hole in the display, but it is too early to say whether this will be the final iPhone design, or whether the front camera will be under the screen.

According to leaker Mauri QHD, the iPhone 13 will have the same thickness at the four edges and fingerprint recognition under the screen - using the latest Qualcomm ultrathin sensor, presented at CES 2021. Apple should use LPTO panels provided by Samsung, with 120Hz refresh rate.

Face ID, which debuted on iPhone X, you can leave the line in 2021. Facial recognition technology did not do well with face protection masks - necessary in the midst of Covid-19 pandemic.

However, there are still reports that Apple will combine Touch ID and Face ID, with some optimizations. This information was confirmed by sources from the Wall Street Journal, which according to two former Apple employees, the company is in fact developing digital printing technology under the screen.

According to MacRumors, Apple is expected to return to the “traditional” iPhone launch schedule, which was halted in 2020 because of the pandemic. The company should hold an event in September, with the presentation of the iPhone 13 (with 6.1 ”screen) and three variants: mini (5.4”), Pro (6.1 ”) and Pro Max (6.7”).
