Are you excited about a notch-less iPhone? Because there are sensors for selfies and face recognition at the front, iPhones still have a small notch at the top of the screen.

Instead, the analysts predict the first notch-free iPhone will come in 2020, with the iPhone 12 series - but not all of them.

It is possible that this China-specific model is the same iPhone Kuo mentioned with a smaller notch. They are also expected to be around the size of iPhone 8 with similar design features as iPhone X - but of course in a minimalistic way. For those unaware, the other three iPhone models for next year would include a 6.7-inch, 6.1-inch, and a 5.4-inch OLED screen sizes and the cheaper model with an LCD, as aforementioned and likely to be targeted for Chinese markets only, according to an earlier report.

As per TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who also happens to be the foremost authority on Apple-related leaks, the Cupertino-based giant will be reducing the TrueDepth "notch" in 2020 iPhones.

The 2019 iPhones are now just months away, and if what the rumors claim is true, there won't be much to get excited about.

Those planning to upgrade to this year's new iPhones, which are expected to debut in September, can expect to see a new triple-lens camera and an improved Face ID sensor among other features. Another investor note - this time by Credit Suisse - also reveals that Apple's screen suppliers are actively working on displays without a notch.

Additionally, the notchless iPhone that will be released in 2020 will feature an under-screen front camera and acoustic fingerprint authentication that is full screen. Many felt that it hinders the smartphone experience and prevents an edge-to-edge display.

It's not the first time we're hearing rumors about Apple ditching Face ID in order to return to Touch ID, in one form or another.

The iPhone Notch has been controversial, with many unhappy with the way it makes the iPhone look and claiming that Apple has compromised on usability and style by switching to a notch before it had developed under-the-screen fingerprint technology.
