Apple reportedly plans iPhones with curved screens and non-touch gesture controls

The iPad Is The Best Tablet

"So far, every iPhone model has used a flat display". It's mentioned that the touchless gesture control feature may not arrive for another two years, and it's also possible the company will "not go forward" with either of these concepts. Samsung is already working on a foldable smartphone, while Huawei is seeing increased success in Asia.

Separately, Bloomberg had last month reported that Apple was secretly researching on a newer generation of display called MicroLED screens.

The report specifically cites that Apple is testing an iPhone display capable of detecting gestures from finger movements without actually touching the display. At that price, we're talking just under 3x the estimated cost (IHS) of the display for the iPhone X.

Phones that fold or bend may be more a case of nostalgia, traveling to the clamshell design of old-school, but they have the inheritance to break one from their Smartphone rut.

Stoke v Tottenham: Alli can inspire Spurs again
Toby Alderweireld is back from injury but manager Mauricio Pochettino has chosen not to play him in recent weeks. "Three points will be massive for them but us too because to finish in top four is a massive objective for us".

Another project that Apple is working on is the curved displays. These are touchless gesture control and curvy display screens. For those unaware, the OLED screen of the iPhone X also bends inward from the bottom but is not visible to the human eye.

While the feature was created to help prevent these shutdowns, many felt it wasn't particularly transparent of Apple to reduce the performance of its devices without telling users. Looking back, it was Apple who gifted the world with the computer mouse, the iconic iPhone, features such as 3D touch (pressure-based touch gesture in a phone) etc.

And it seems that the success of Face ID has prompted Apple to begin working on ways to use your phone without touching it at all. So some finger movements close to the screen will be enough to perform actions, but the technology for it will not be ready for at least two years, the report notes.
