High-end iPhone to have Samsung-like curved OLED display in 2017: source

With iPhone sales falling flat, Apple is set to follow Samsung's lead with a more curved design.

TAIPEI -- Apple Inc. has come up with three new iPhone models for next year, including a premium handset that will sport a curved display like the one Samsung Electronics has adopted for its top-of-the-range smartphones, a source familiar with Apple's plans told the Nikkei Asian Review.

"There will be a 4.7-inch model, another that will be 5.5-inches and a premium handset that will be either 5.5-inches or larger equipped with a screen bent on the two sides," the source said, adding the first two will continue to have flat screens, like current Apple mobile devices.
