According to a Bloomberg report, however, the Cupertino-based company has a number of new features in the works in order to differentiate its future models in the coming years.
Instead of curving outwards towards the edges of the phone, Apple is considering displays that have a concave curvature that slowly dips towards the center from the top and bottom. "The control feature would let iPhone users perform some tasks by moving their finger close to the screen without actually tapping it ..."
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Both features are still in the early research and development stage and Apple could choose to not go forward with the enhancements.
Although curved displays and touchless input may still be years away, greater use of OLED displays is expected this year. However, it is uncertain how much of the iPhone X's features will end up in the new iPad Pro build.
We're expecting Apple to announce and release its new handsets in September this year.
A new Bloomberg report from the often reliable Mark Gurman details two major changes that could be on the horizon for Apple's upcoming smartphone. Apple introduced pressure-sensitive displays with the addition of 3D Touch following the release of the iPhone 6s and the Apple Watch, though few apps take advantage of the feature in a way that makes sense. Samsung is already working on a foldable smartphone, while Huawei is seeing increased success in Asia.
Google's Project Soli also boasts similar tech, this time integrating a sensor and antenna into a micro-chip that uses radar to detect touchless motions.
While the Apple projects aren't imminent, the company has near-term plans to expand OLED technology to more devices, according to other people familiar with the matter. Back when including everything but the kitchen sink in phones was a thing, Samsung allowed users to control their Galaxy S devices by doing things like waving their hand over the display to scroll. A larger 6.5-inch iPhone will carry an OLED display.
