Apple working on curved iPhone 6
9Apple are reportedly working on new iPhone designs, including some with curved glass displays.
The new designs are also said to feature enhanced sensor technology which can detect differing levels of pressure, meaning, for instance, the touchscreen could act more like an analogue button on a games controller.
Specifically, the report from Bloomberg, citing, ‘sources in the know’ says the design curves the glass downwards at the edges and sensors that can figure out if you’re pressing hard or gently.
4.7 and 5.5-inch screen choices rumoured.
Screen sizes are apparently set to be 4.7 and 5.5-inches, making them larger than the current breed and closer to some of the bigger Android phones in circulation. LG has just announced their OLED equipped G Flex with a 6-inch screen, whilst Samsung is also pushing the curved message with its Galaxy Round, featuring a Full HD super AMOLED display, at 5.7-inches.
And why not?The simultaneous release of two new iPhones, in the 5S and 5C broke new ground for Apple so who’s to say they introduce another to the portfolio. We can’t see Apple allowing the other major players to hold this card over them for too long, either, so we’re filing as quite likely.
How does the thought of a curvy, iPhone 6 grab you? Sounds pretty sexy to us!
