Its still too early to say if curved displays are going to make it in the mainstream smartphone market. Both Samsung and LG have come out with their contenders, but it remains to be seen if the Galaxy Round or G Flex are ever launched globally. A new report from Bloomberg suggests that Apple might want in on the curved bandwagon as well. Apparently Cupertino is working on two new iPhones, with 4.7 and 5.5 inch curved screens. These iPhones are expected to be released in the second half of 2014, according to people who’re familiar with the company’s plans.
That’s not all, it is also claimed that these new iPhones will have sensors which will be able to determine if pressure being applied on the display is light or heavy. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard that Apple is experimenting with iPhones that have larger displays. In fact, it is widely believed at this point in time that the next iPhone is going to have a larger display. This is also not the first time that Apple has been rumored to be working on curved displays, back in 2011 it was believed that the iPhone 5 might have a curved display, but it didn’t. So as is the case with all rumors, its best to take this one with a grain of salt as well.
