The rumors about the two new models of iPhones with larger displays and with downward curving glass have to be more than just rumors, since their release is planned for the late next year. The main feature of the new sensors will be that they will be able to recognize light or heavy screen touches. This feature will probably become standard in the other future models.

The two new iPhone models will have 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch screens and would be the largest Apple’s iPhones.

Samsung Electronics Co. is trying to stay ahead of Apple by releasing last month its Galaxy Round with the curved glass display, and 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 3.

This is the second time that Apple is planning the release of two iPhone models at the same time. September’s release of the iPhone 5c and 5s was the first departure from the previous practice of introducing models one at the time. The iPhone had more advanced features and was more expensive, while iPhone 5c was cheaper and more affordable to the many new customers.
