Ice Universe: 5G iPhone will have punch-hole display

By Jules Wang December 24, 2018, 2:00 pm

Time for another amazing prognostication from late in the year 2018: the first iPhone to have 5G will also be the first to lose the top-of-the-screen notch, but go with a fully-immersed camera hole in its display.

Chinese leaks blogger Ice Universe, which has had a pretty good track record on the Asia side, has heard from their source(s) on this. The magic date? 2020.

That means that we’re stuck with that TrueDepth camera notch for next September, at least so we’re told.
