The second experimental feature in Bloomberg's report relates to Apple designing iPhones with a display that curves inwards in the middle.

The report suggests the new phone would be able to detect gestures from fingers without the user actually touching the screen.

Apple is now developing curved displays and "touchless gesture controls" for future versions of its flagship iPhone, according to a new report.

Speaking in terms of the display, it will "gradually" curve inward from top to bottom and it's still at least two to three years away.

This news comes after Apple is set to ditch Intel chips in 2020. Apple is still in the early development stages with those technologies. However, Intel will still be working on the iPhone, of which it proves over half the modems for each device. Apple introduced pressure-sensitive displays with the addition of 3D Touch following the release of the iPhone 6s and the Apple Watch, though few apps take advantage of the feature in a way that makes sense.




An Apple spokeswoman, however, declined to comment on this.

In the fourth quarter, Apple was responsible for about 20% of smartphone shipments following the launch of the iPhone X and iPhone 8, beating out second place Samsung and Huawei, according to IDC. Smartphones have become increasingly similar as Apple, Samsung Electronics, Google, and Huawei Technologies adopt features like full screens, advanced cameras, and facial recognition at roughly the same time.

Air Gestures, on the other hand, rely on a motion sensor in the phone's bezel.

To access adequate OLED supplies for these new devices, Apple is expanding its sourcing from Samsung to also include LG Display, the people said.
