Apple's next iPhone — successor to the X — could look very different, according to predictions made by Barclays investment bank analysts Andrew Gardiner, Hiral Patel, Joseph Wolf and Blayne Curtis.

The note, first reported on by MacRumorsread: “Based on several data points within the 4Q17 reporting period and our supply chain meetings at CES, we remain confident that Apple is set to deploy its TrueDepth 3D sensor across the iPhone range in 2018.”

The TrueDepth sensors are part of the phone's Face ID, but the note suggests that the second-generation sensors could lead to a "smaller notch" on the iPhone X.

The analysts also predict that a rear-facing Face ID could come to phones by 2019, writing: “Our discussions with suppliers suggests Apple and its partners are working hard on a world-facing [rear] solution.” Read the full report here.
