Report: iPhones with 4.7-inch curved display coming next year According to Bloomberg, Apple is designing new iPhones with bigger screens and curved glass that will include enhanced sensors to detect levels of pressure.
The devices, one with a 4.7-inch display and the other with 5.5-inches, will be easily Apple's largest phones, ever. The displays will curve downward at the edges.

Rivals Samsung and LG recently revealed their curved glass smartphones, the Round and G Flex, respectively although the practical uses of a flexible display remain low, at least in 2013.

In addition, the company continues to test the pressure-sensitive technology, although it may not be ready for 2014 edition iPhones.

I would argue if you want important news try a site not dedicated to tech...

It might be a little risky for Apple to have a curved phone it still seems like a gimmick. With Android you have so many choices there is room for risky moves but Apple has so few choices. will be interesting to see how it go's.
