Apple Inc is reportedly working on two large screen iPhone models, which are planned to release in the second half of 2014, which might come with the displays with curved glass towards down at the edges.


The next iPhones said to be consist of display with 4.7-inches and 5.5-inches size, thus the entry of Apple into the new Phablet market will be marked for sure, which is now dominated by the Galaxy Note 3 from the leading smartphone maker – Samsung. In Q3 2013, Samsung was in first place in the market with more than 60% of market share.

Additionally, the Cupertino-based company is working on the display type, which can differentiate between light and heavy touches to use on different type of capabilities on its iPhones. The enhanced pressure sensitivity can be used, for example, light touch for opening and heavy touch for zooming. However, it’s reported that this technology, perhaps, will not be available for the next year’s iPhones and it’s in still development mode. However, it’s not sure about the naming of the device, whether it’s a iPhone 6 or any other.
