Next iPhone To Feature A Curved Glass Screen
This week wouldn’t be complete without another iPhone 5 rumor, so here we go! DigiTmes is reporting that the iPhone 5 will feature curved glass. Sounds pretty sleek!
Apple has used curved glass in the past. The previous generation iPod nano had a curved screen, but Apple reverted to flat glass for the new “sqaure” nano.
Sources claim that Apple has already purchased 200-300 glass cutting machines. Apple would not be the first to deploy curved glass on a smartphone. Samsung offers a curved screen on their Nexus S phone, many people claim they did so to enhance user comfort.
There has been no timetable yet for the volume production of iPhone 5 as Apple is currently still working with related suppliers including those involved in cover glass, glass cutting, lamination and touch sensors to improve yield rates, the sources commented.
