Apple’s iPhone 6 will have a bezel–free display, with the screen sitting flush against the sides of the device. That’s the inside line from an ‘industry source’ who has spoken with The Korea Herald about the tech giant's plans.
Word is Samsung is also plotting a similar move for the Galaxy S5, which is due to drop on February 24th at Mobile World Congress.
According to reports, Samsung's next-gen flagship will apparently utilise fingerprint scanning tech across the bottom of the touchscreen.
Similar plans for the iPhone 6, though, are open to question. A bezel–free phone would require Apple to ditch the handset's home button and with that its Touch ID feature.
Apple has in the past shied away from making the home button part of the phone’s display.
Tim Cook and co are expected to launch the iPhone 6 in autumn. The phone is believed to come with a new ‘Healthbook’ app focused on fitness, as well as bulked up screen and potentially an all–new design.
