Apple iPhone Pursues Touchless Control & Curved Screens For Future Models
Apr 05, 2018, 01:41
Apple is also working on new screen technology, known as MicroLED, but that's at least three to five years away, Bloomberg News reported last month.
The report specifically cites that Apple is testing an iPhone display capable of detecting gestures from finger movements without actually touching the display.
According to Bloomberg, these displays will gradually curve inward from top to bottom, where as every iPhone model in the past, with the exception of the iPhone X, have used flat displays.
This news comes after Apple is set to ditch Intel chips in 2020.
Bloomberg's sources reiterated that both features are still relatively early in the research and development phase, and Apple could choose to nix either. However, Intel will still be working on the iPhone, of which it proves over half the modems for each device. Apple's latest iPhones have a feature called 3D Touch that responds differently depending on different finger pressures.
An Apple spokeswoman, however, declined to comment on this.
The work comes as the Cupertino, California-based smartphone pioneer looks to make its gadgets stand out. They are rumored to have curved screens and feature touchless controls.
Apple is staying ahead of the curve by introducing features not found in competitors' models. The approach differs from concepts like Samsung's Air Gestures or Google's Project Soli, relying on technology built into the display rather than any cameras or motion sensors. The gestures wouldn't need to be close to the screen like how Apple is developing its gesture feature.
Those familiar with Samsung's Galaxy line will likely remember that the South Korean manufacturer has played with simple hand gesture controls in the past, most notably with the Galaxy S4 and S6.
