We're expecting Apple to announce and release its new handsets in September this year. This new feature would work by detecting the user's proximity to the screen to determine what the person is trying to do. Apple's latest flagship curves slightly at the bottom, but Bloomberg points out that this is mostly invisible to users. It wouldn't be similar to the Samsung screens that feature curved edges that curve downward instead of inward.

Apple is reportedly working on touches gesture screens that curve, which will be different than all other smartphones in the mobile phone market.


OLED, or organic light emitting diode, displays can be shaped into curves or even folded, unlike the less-flexible LCD screen technology used in prior iPhones.

"Both features are still in the early research and development stage and Apple could choose to not go forward with the enhancements", Bloomberg notes. An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment. They are rumored to have curved screens and feature touchless controls.


In the fourth quarter, Apple was responsible for about 20% of smartphone shipments following the launch of the iPhone X and iPhone 8, beating out second place Samsung and Huawei, according to IDC.

Apple is staying ahead of the curve by introducing features not found in competitors' models. Rather than having motion sensors in the bezel, Bloomberg says that the display itself will act as a sensor and your hands will have to be much closer to the screen to register and use touchless gestures.


The company is also rumoured to be working on yet more phones with the OLED display and edge-to-edge design of the iPhone X, with a bigger and smaller versions said to be planned for later this year.
