Latest iPhone Rumor: Curved Glass Coming To Next Generation

According to DigiTimes, the next generation of iPhone will feature a curved glass top as part of its display. This approach should welcome in a edge to edge display and a larger screen for future iPhone users.

Apple has reportedly purchased between 200 and 300 glass cutting machines to be used by glass makers. According to DigiTimes, smartphone manufacturers had been reluctant to invest in glass equipment due to costs in producing the glass. But Apple’s purchase of the equipment has fast tracked the inclusion of curved glass in the next generation of the iPhone.

It is still widely anticipated that the next generation of iPhone, be it called the iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S, will arrive at the earliest in September and latest in November of 2011.

      When would you mean to drop a phone?

      If you are going to complain, at least make sense. A little bit of fourth grade grammar could be used, as well.

      Of course there are always those people who drop expensive glass objects, but I wouldn’t let those sorts of people hold a $600 piece of glass art!. 
      No I would much rather let them hold the plastic, chunky, child friendly bits of crap from the mother and baby store, then they can throw it up in the air, chuck it against a wall or stick it in their mouth to their hearts content!.And leave quality products to the professional, responsible user..

        As funny as it was to (attempt to) read the original comment, the replies aren’t exactly fair. Of course no one means to drop their phone – accidents happen. Just cause someone does drop it doesn’t make them an idiot and it doesn’t mean they shouldn’t buy nice things. While it is their responsibility to treat their purchase in a way that keeps it safe, the iPhone 4 is notoriously horrible about breaking. There are things Apple could have done to make it stronger. Because even though the user should treat it with care, you shouldn’t have to be paranoid about using a device as common and necessary as a phone.

      after your first one you think you would have gotten a case – clearly your parents dropped you a few times, too

  2. To be honest, I’m in love with the iPhone 4 design. I don’t know if curved glass is the way to go.

    I want flat. No one puts the whole phone on the oily face anyway. Only the ear touches it. It’s a fad. Don’t do it Apple!!!
