New iPhones may have curved screens and touchless controls

Since Apple’s launch of iPhone X last year, we have seen many rumours as to what the next device from the Cupertino giant might look like. Now a new report from Bloomberg suggests that Apple might be working on curved screens and touchless gesture controls.

Both the projects are in the early stage of development and are for two separate devices. This is not the first time someone has worked on curved screens and touchless controls. Both the features were previously seen in Samsung Galaxy S series. Samsung Galaxy S4 had Air gestures that allowed users to interact with the device without touching it. It was of course not accurate at the time but we hope Apple does a better job at implementing it, something that should be easier to achieve using the Kinect-like sensor normally used for Face ID.

Another project that Apple is working on is the curved displays. Again while Samsung has been adding curved displays on its flagship S series for a while now, Bloomberg’s reports that Apple’s curved iPhone display would “curve inward gradually from top to bottom”, a description which brings to mind the old LG G Flex from many years ago.

Both the projects are still in early stages but we can hope to see them in action very soon. Meanwhile, our readers can head to the comments section below and let us know their thoughts on this latest rumour.
