New report says Apple is working on two large-screened iPhone models with curved glass
A published report on Sunday cites someone familiar with Apple's plans as saying that the Cupertino based tech titan is working on larger-screened versions of the Apple iPhone. According to this source, Apple is working on two new models, both of which could be released in the second half of next year. Both models are said to employ glass that curves downward at the edges. In addition, sensors used by Apple would allow the handset to determine if a touch on the display is a 'heavy' one or a 'light' tap, although that technology won't be ready for the next iPhone release.

According to the source, Apple is working on iPhones with a 4.7 inch screen and a 5.5 inch screen. Earlier this year, rumors circulated about a 4.8 inch version of the iconic smartphone that was called the Apple iPhone Math. A larger sized iPhone would compete with Android and Windows Phone models like the 5.2 inch LG G2, the 5.7 inch Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Nokia Lumia 1520. Two handsets with curved glass have recently been introduced with the Samsung Galaxy Round having already been launched. The LG G Flex will be released this Tuesday in Korea.

According to the report, the new Apple iPhone models would be released in the third quarter of next year, which matches up with the September launch of the last three models (including the two this year). As usual when it comes to speculation like this, we suggest you cast a wary eye upon the report, even if you have been dreaming about a phablet-sized iPhone.
