Apple iPhone 17 Pro Under-Display Face ID Technology Is A Dynamic Change With Some Concern

Apple is working on under-display Face ID technology, which was expected in Apple iPhone 16 Pro models, but due to sensor issues, this ambitious project has been taken forward. In recent days rumours came that Apple iPhone 17 Pro will be loaded with under-display Face ID technology. Plus, it will have only a 4-megapixel camera, which is remarkably shorter than the 12-megapixel used in Apple iPhone 14 Pro model. In such a situation, there can be a negative impact on the quality of the selfie camera.

Apple uses a Super Retina display, whose PPI is around 400-500. On the other hand, under-display front camera technology requires less light, and this also affects the image quality.

The Under display FaceID technology has a circular cutout for the front-facing camera. This design decision will most likely continue until the Apple iPhone 19 Pro/Max models with the facial recognition sensor. Moreover, the camera is hidden under the display to provide a true “full screen” look. 

New 120Hz LTPO Panels Can Come in Use

“Apple will go completely LTPO in 2025, and even base models will finally get 120Hz refresh” These are the words of Ross Young, a display analyst.
