Apple is planning to use hole-display for all four models of its iPhone 15 series, TheElec has learned.
Hole-display has a hole in the display panel where the front camera is located, allowing there to be more screens compared to notches.
Cupertino applied this technology to two models of its latest iPhone 14 series.
The two models, Pro and Pro Max, had a Dynamic Island feature thanks to this; there were two holes, one for the front camera and another for the Face ID.
All four models of iPhone 15 are expected to have the Dynamic Island feature now.
Samsung Display bought more laser etching equipment used to punch holes in its displays earlier this month from supplier Philoptics.
Last year in September, the display panel maker, which provides OLED panels to Apple, bought more production kits than it planned from additional suppliers such as AP System and HB Solution due to the higher-than-expected demand for iPhone 14 Pro Max.
AP System suppliers optical clear resin deposition machines while HB Solution provides edge light blocking machines.
Apple is yet to apply under panel face ID technology, which won’t be coming with iPhone 15.
These will likely be applied to later devices; Samsung already uses under-panel technologies for its premium phones. It is an upgrade from hole-displays where the hole is now covered with a screen when the component under it is not used.
