Apple Reportedly Developing Curved Screen iPhones
Posted: November 12, 2013 by Emily Brown
Following in the Samsung and LG's footsteps, Apple is said to be working on new iPhones with curved-glass screens and improved sensors that will detect different levels of pressure – latest Bloomberg's report reveals.
A person familiar with the matter told the site that two curved display iPhone models are planned for release in the second half of the next year.
The phones will reportedly include curved glass screens of 4.7 and 5.5 inches each. Such screen dimensions make them considerably larger than the 4-inch screens of current iPhone 5s models.
Not only Apple will treat users with big screen phones, but it is also developing a whole new type of touch screens that can distinguish different levels of pressure; even though it's not 100% sure if these will be ready for use along with the new iPhone versions.
The big news comes after Samsung came up with the concept and was shortly followed by LG, both unveiling their own curved-screen smartphones last month.
Well, it was high time for the phone maker to introduce both curved and big screen devices, since iPhones are by far Apple's most important and profitable products, as well as iPhone users have been fervently anticipating the company's launch of a larger screen.
