Apple is working on new iPhone designs featuring bigger screens with curved glass and enhanced sensors capable of distinguishing different levels of pressure, Bloomberg reported on Sunday.
Citing an unnamed source familiar with the plans, the agency said the new models fitted with 4.7 inch (11.9 cm) and 5.5 inch (14 cm) screens, would be Apple's largest iPhone models to date.
Supposedly scheduled for release in the third quarter of 2014, the new smartphones are still being developed and the designs have not been finalised yet.
Apple’s spokeswoman Natalie Kerris refused to comment.
In September, Apple’s biggest competitor Samsung announced plans to launch the world’s first curved-screened smartphone later this autumn. The new handset model fitted with the curved screens will only be available in South Korea.
