Apple iPhone X display better than Samsung Galaxy Note 8's: DisplayMate
Apple is reportedly working on a redesign of the iPad that includes dropping the Home button and slimming down the bezels on the top-end model, as well as adding facial recognition tech to allow for Face ID unlocking and more. This move follows in step with the iPhone X, which has seen success, both critically and commercially, thanks to its refreshed design, improved performance and future-looking feature set.
The sources, speaking to Bloomberg, claim that at least one iPad model with around a 10.5-inch display is in the pipeline, and that it will feature Face ID. More likely is early 2018 alongside the annual iPad refresh which we hope will have Face ID.
Why not include an OLED display on the new iPad model?
After years in steady decline, the iPad has bounced back to post year-on-year growth in the last couple of quarters. In fact, the excitement surrounding the iPhone X launch was so strong that we even saw a return of large throngs of people queuing up outside of Apple retail stores on launch day and throughout the weekend.
One feature of the iPhone X that won't apparently be making its way to the new iPad would be an OLED display.
Other suppliers, including LG Electronics Inc., Japan Display Inc., Sharp Corp., and smaller China-based firms like BOE Display and Tianma Microelectronics are also unlikely to have the ability to supply tablet-sized OLED screens to Apple next year, other people familiar with the supply chain said.
Though Kuo didn't mention Face ID specifically, Apple's True Depth cameras are what enable Face ID, Animoji, and other features that take advantage of the iPhone X's depth-sensing selfie camera. The report also said the Apple is preparing a new version of the Apple Pencil to unveil along with the new tablets.
