We're expecting Apple to announce and release its new handsets in September this year.
There may be more iPhone X-style phones with OLED displays in the works, one of which could have a dramatically larger screen than the original iPhone X. On the contrary, Samsung's smartphone displays curve down at the edges.
While Apple hasn't introduced touchless gestures in the past, companies like Samsung and Motorola have.
Apple is working on a way for you to control some tasks on a phone by moving your finger close to the screen, Bloomberg said. Those familiar with the plans claim that if Apple continues to develop these new technologies for the iPhone, they likely will not make their debut for another two or three years.
Touchless gesture control would allow end users to hover their finger over the display and still be able to interact with onscreen options. According to Bloomberg's sources, a touchless-gestures feature from Apple would use technology built into the display itself rather than sensing motion from a sensor on the front of the phone. This is more or less the same time frame the tipsters provided for the other new technology that they said Apple is developing: a curved screen.
