Apple to launch 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones next year

Apple is building a new, larger, curved iPhone which will include pressure-sensitive sensors to detect how hard fanboys squeeze and fondle their small slab, it has been claimed. According to a report on Bloomberg, an unnamed Apple source said a new iPhone slated for release next year would include a larger display with glass that curves down at the edges. So this is all seemingly speculative at the moment. The super mobes are expected to come in two models with screens of 4.7 and 5.5 inches – Apple’s largest yet. The phone will also come complete with unprecedented pressure sensitivity which can work out the amount of force that’s applied by a user on the glass screen. This ability to tell a slap from a tickle could be handy for a number of reasons. Firstly, it could offer another way of navigating through the phone, perhaps allowing a new way of flicking through apps by adding a Z dimension to the X and Y which already exist.
