An Apple analyst insists that Apple could use a special "pure black" coating to hide the iPhone front camera.

As a result, the lens is mixed in the notch, so it can hardly be seen by the eyes without affecting the performance of the camera.

Some Apple iPhone fans will prefer it if Apple runs out of the notches at the top of the iPhone's display. But it will take several years to find an effective way to achieve that. Meanwhile, Apple is planning to clean notches.

Jeff Pu, an analyst at GF Securities, suggests that Apple will use special coatings to hide the front of the iPhone in the future.

Invisible concealment of iPhone camera

This coating will allow the camera facing the front of the iPhone to "completely disappear", Pu explains. It will eliminate "small spots" that can be seen on iPhone notches. Apple does a good job of making them hard to see, but they stand out with good light.

Special coatings are developed by Largan Precision, Pu aroused attention to investors, Economic Daily News, One or two smartphone manufacturers will adopt it by 2020.

Although the name of Apple is not specified, it is feasible that Apple is one of these smartphone makers, considering that the company has a partnership with Largan supplying the iPhone camera lens.

To eliminate the notch

Perhaps it seems not to be much improved for notches that many people think are ugly design choices. But this is an improvement on how Apple makes it possible in the mission to make the iPhone more beautiful.

Other cell phone manufacturers have taken various steps to hide front-facing cameras and other sensors. Oppo's amazing Find X does not require a pop-up camera hidden inside the phone so that you do not have to put a notch in the display.

Apple is unlikely to adopt such a solution. It is not simple and the fact that the parts move means that there is a high possibility that something will be wrong. But you can be confident that the company is working on other ways to completely eliminate notches.
