It seems like the first leaks and hints regarding next year’s iPhone have just begun to emerge. As folks wait for this year’s iPhone to launch, it seems like major design changes wouldn’t be coming to the iPhone until 2020. In a tweet by the credible leaker, Apple could potentially ditch their traditional notch for a punch hole display.
For those who don’t know, the new punch-hole display design is the new rage pretty much all OEMs have on their hands this year. As Android OEMs continue to experiment all of the notch options, it seems like Apple isn’t planning to redesign their iPhones. Several leaks from this year’s iPhone have suggested that Apple would be leaving their design unchanged this year apart from a few tweaks at the back to accommodate a few new camera gimmicks.
Several leaks have pretty much cemented that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 family of devices would feature a punch-hole notch to exclusively house the selfie camera. Huawei, on the other hand, has already released the Huawei Honor V20 featuring the, as Samsung calls it, the Infinity-O notch.
While all of these OEMs continue to perfect their taste, it seems like Apple has no plans to jump around with its design language this soon. Ice Universe said in a tweet…

Several leaks have also suggested that the iPhone X that would be launching this year would not feature 5G support until the next iPhone, suggesting that this iPhone launch could be stagnant without much bells and whistles.
As we head forward, a ton of Android OEMs would be making some major strides and potentially design changes to adapt to the ever-thriving trends. As Apple typically releases their iPhones in September, it’s likely that Apple could potentially prepare for some major head-turners as they continue to work on the new iPhone.
