A notch-less iPhone isn't going to appear overnight.

Further, Kuo predicts that Apple may also change the design of the handset. There are also reports of Apple readying a fourth iPhone specifically for China with support for Touch ID.

Moreover, Chinese smartphone makers such as Oppo and Xiaomi already showcased phones with under-screen front cameras.

Now the recent reports back such speculations. It is unclear whether Apple plans to do away with Face ID on all their upcoming iPhone models in the future.

However an advert released earlier this week, Apple claims that their Face ID is "safer and easier" than Touch ID.
