Similar to the curved LG smartphone we posted about a few weeks ago, Apple may ride the same design train with two models — with screens of 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches —said to be in the works, both using glass that curves downward at the edges and enhanced sensors that detect different levels of pressure.
The new phones would likely be released in the third quarter of next year, sources said.
Curved glass has become a trend among major tech companies. LG is set to release its G Flex phone, which is curved from top to bottom, while Samsung recently released its Galaxy Round phone, which has a 5.7-inch horizontally curved display.
