Last September Apple released two new models: the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. The first one with more advanced features and the latter is cost-effective phone, created to win the broader markets. That was not successful attempt, in fact demand for the iPhone 5s is much higher, and iPhone 5c production has been reduced. At the same time Samsung released the new phone with curved display, called Galaxy Round.
Its size is the largest ever existed. It helped Samsung to be ahead of Apple in global market share. The common sales period for Apple is current quarter, but this time may be the slowest since 2008.
Now some rumors appeared that there will be another release. Unidentified source spilled some details about the soon launch of new iPhones, that are claimed to have curved screen and be of a larger size. Innovation in components has been a key for Apple since the first iPhone came out. The glass screen will be curving inwards. It is said that two models are planned to be launched next year. Also, later on, it is planned to implement new sensors, it is a brand-new feature – a sensor that will detect the pressure level made on the phone screen. Most likely this feature will be available on subsequent models.
Regarding the screen size Apple is going to catch up the Samsung models. The screens of 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches will be implemented on the two new models. These would be Apple’s largest iPhones and would reach the size of 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 3 that Samsung unveiled in September.
The new iPhones are still under development but the rumors have already appeared now, though representatives of Apple Inc. refused to comment them. It is known that the launch date cannot be sooner than the third quarter of the year. The testing continues on the pressure-sensitive technology.
Apple develops new materials due to work with suppliers to invent new technologies that can improve device functions. Apple said last week it will open a new plant in Arizona to make components for its devices.
