Rumors of the iPhone 6 have focused a lot on what we can expect form its size and specifications. We’ve heard that Apple plans to make two devices, both bigger than any iPhone we’ve ever seen, and also much more powerful than their predecessors. Now, given Apple’s track record of valuing how a phone feels in your hand, we wonder how does the company plan to pull that off with bigger devices, and rumors point to Jony Ive’s possible strategy.
In the past we heard some rumors of Apple testing curved displays with its next-generation iPhone 6, and even though those rumors died-down quick, now they’re back. A Japanese publication claims that Jony Ive is striving to bring us some nostalgia by bringing back the aluminum-curved design of the first-generation iPhone, but with the addition of a curved display in order to make one-handed usability ergonomic.
Reviews of the LG G Flex and the Samsung Galaxy Round have been mixed, so it’s hard to tell if this is another market where Apple wants to take an existing idea and improve it, or not. We know the iPhone 6 is rumored for a launch later this year, so let’s see what Cupertino brings tot he table.
