Apple Is Reportedly Working on Touchless and Curved iPhone Screens

Grady Vargas | 06 April, 2018, 04:11

Apple may try to make the feature work more along the lines of 3D Touch, but the simpler air gesture feature has been seen on phones from Samsung in the past. It is rumored to be working on iPhones with curved screens and controls that work with just the wag of a finger.

Apple is said to be working on some brand new designs for future iPhones by adding touchless controls and curved screens, according to a report from Bloomberg.

As suggested by the name, the touchless gesture control feature will allow users to let their fingers "hover close to the screen without actually touching it". However, there is no word on how these new gestures would be integrated into iOS software. While Samsung displays on flagship Galaxy smartphones curve horizontally, a curve from top to bottom could help Apple differentiate itself from the competition.

MicroLED is a low-power display technology that features better color gamuts and brightness levels than LCD. Apparently it will take Apple another two years to put these innovations into a working product. Even Apple's new iPhone X, which introduced new facial recognition technology and a almost all-screen front, failed to universally impress reviewers. For those unaware, the OLED screen of the iPhone X also bends inward from the bottom but is not visible to the human eye. Both the new gesture control and display technologies are still in the early research and development phases. Also, talking about Apple producing a new sort of device is exciting, so any whisper is more likely jumped upon than most other news bits. This is pretty different from Samsung's Air Gesture feature that debuted on the Galaxy S4 a few years ago, where Samsung embedded a motion sensor to detect gestures from a particular distance.

Bloomberg on Wednesday reported that Apple's iPhone engineers are working on some pretty interesting things that could hit the market in the not-too-distant future.
