This also gives room to other notions like the incorporation of the TrueDepth Camera sensor for Face ID.

Would the iPhone SE 2 feature Face ID? If so, Apple has a lot of hurdles to surpass given the current technology hold the notch at the size of the iPhone X. Even if Apple has managed to achieve it, we can also forecast that the models to be launch later this year will also feature smaller notches.
