According to a recent Bloomberg report, Apple is working on a two new upcoming models of the iPhone with big screens, which are expected to be released in the second half of 2014. The news devices are also claimed to have displays that will have glasses curved downwards at its edges.
The upcoming iPhone models will have screen size of 4.7-inch and 5.5-inches respectively. The latter will be Apple’s first ever entry in the lucrative “phablets” segment, if everything goes according to plans.
Currently, Apple’s main rival Samsung Electronics, rules the phablets market with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which has a huge 5.7-inch display.
In addition, the Cupertino-based company is also claimed to be working on displays that have enhanced pressure sensitivity, which can differentiate between light or heavy touches. The new technology probably won’t make it in time for the new iPhones next year, but it will eventually be implemented into the subsequent models.
Generally, we would take these reports a bit too early to be true, as the new iPhone 5s, has just been released. However, considering that the Bloomberg’s past records will such reports, we will surely be keeping our eyes and ears open for this one.
Apple released the iPhone 5s on Sept. 10.
