Will future iPhones have curved screens and touchless control?

While we're still getting the hang of Apple'snew gesture interface on the iPhone X, Apple is apparently working on an entirely new kind of phone with a touchless gesture-based input.
The report specifically cites that Apple is testing an iPhone display capable of detecting gestures from finger movements without actually touching the display.
Apple is now developing curved displays and "touchless gesture controls" for future versions of its flagship iPhone, according to a new report. This iPhone display would have a screen that curves inward gradually from the top to the bottom of the phone.
This news comes after Apple is set to ditch Intel chips in 2020.
In its report, Bloomberg notes that both features are only in an experimental phase and that they may not necessarily come to new iPhones. However, Intel will still be working on the iPhone, of which it proves over half the modems for each device. The gestures "likely won't be ready for consumers for at least two years". An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment.
While Apple hasn't introduced touchless gestures in the past, companies like Samsung and Motorola have. Google's ATAP research group has been working on similar technology through a program known as Project Soli. Apple would instead rely on a type of sensor technology built into the display itself.
Samsung's Galaxy handsets curve in at the side edges of the display, so Apple would be able to differentiate with that approachAs Bloomberg points out, the iPhone X already curves in ever-so-slightly at the bottom of the display, but future iterations could see this become much more pronounced.
To access adequate OLED supplies for these new devices, Apple is expanding its sourcing from Samsung to also include LG Display, the people said.
