According to Kuo, who has a record of accurately predicting features of new Apple products, the iPhone X will feature black bezels on the black. The black bezels will remain intact across color variants. Given Apple’s keen eye for design, this particular prediction might actually come true. The upcoming iPhone X is expected to be available in limited color choices of silver, blush gold, and black. So, as per the prediction, irrespective of the model color, the front bezels will remain black. This is to ensure ‘better aesthetic design’ by hiding the front-facing camera and sensors, and blending them with the all-screen OLED display.

In addition to the black bezels, the iPhone X is said to feature 3D sensing its ‘biggest selling point’ which is said to aid in facial recognition and taking selfies. Kuo notes that the front facing sensor bar on the iPhone X will include the 3D sensor, structured light receiver, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, front camera, and a structured light transmitter that is made by LG Innotek. The ambient light sensor could help improve 3D sensing performance to some extent, Macrumors reports.
