Apple Rumored To "Invent" Features For Next iPhone That Already Existed On The Galaxy S4

Now that notches are popping up on just about every new smartphone screen, Apple’s next iPhone will need some new tricks to stand out from its competitors. But if a report from Bloomberg is true, instead of coming up with entirely new ideas, it seems Apple may try to crib some features from a handful of five-year-old devices.

Bloomberg claims that two new features Apple is exploring for use on a future iPhone (that’s maybe two or three years away) include “touchless gesture control” that would let a you manipulate the phone from an unspecified distance, and displays “that curve inward gradually from top to bottom,” as opposed to the sloping edges found on phones like the Galaxy S9.
Based on Bloomberg’s descriptions, these feature ideas may not actually be entirely new, but instead a revival of tech from the phones of yesteryear.



For those who have followed the evolution of smartphones for awhile, you might recall that non-touch gestures are something that Samsung debuted on the Galaxy S4 in 2013. Back then, Samsung called its features Air View and Air Gesture, which allowed you to do things like hover your hand over a tiny sensor in the bezel to wake the screen and view notifications, or wave your hand across the screen to switch between tabs or flip through photos.

Samsung wasn’t the only company to try something like this either. On the 2015 Moto X Pure, Motorola installed its own gesture controls that would let you wave your hand over the screen to turn the display on or off, in addition to a selection of traditional gestures like holding the phone and making a chopping motion to turn on the flashlight, the latter of which is still available on more recent Moto handsets via Moto Actions.

On the Galaxy Round, you could use the curved back to tilt phone and turn on the screen. It was pretty cool at the time, but in the era where phones have always-on displays, the feature is much less useful.

As for that rumored, inwardly curving screen, Samsung did that first on the Galaxy Round in 2013 (only released in South Korea), which was then followed by the original LG G Flex in 2014, and then again on the G Flex 2 in 2015. The G Flex even went one step further, because on top of having a concave design that LG says made the screen feel more natural and soothing to touch (which it kinda did), the screens themselves had a little flex to them, which helped the phones endure a life spent stuffed inside users’ pockets.

The LG G Flex 2 was both curvy and bendy.

In the years since the Galaxy Round, S4, and G Flex debuted, however, both Samsung and LG have largely given up on the technology they pioneered five years ago. And if Apple could revive those ideas and potentially make them useful, that might be kind of nice, just so long as the company doesn’t try to take credit for inventing the tech. After all, sooner or later, everything old is new again.

I know that Steve Jobs was more of a hustler than an actual inventor and that most of what Mcintosh was known for and has been praised about with their flagship devices over the years came from lesser known creators (like Wozniak)

But I do have to say,
I joined the Apple cult and drank the Apple Juice back in 2007-2008 with the iphone. I'd owned an Ipod and it was better than my Zune I'd owned (Zune really could've been a dope a*s device).

but since the passing of Jobs, Apple's "innovations" have been lack luster.
Granted, they've been focusing on software development (and even then, that's sketchy) and redesign of their device's appearances, but without a mind like Job's - who knew how to find talent, even if he ended up getting credit for it - Apple is falling to the way-side.

I don't know much about Cook, and maybe he is a good successor of Jobs - to the apple employees, but he fu*king sucks in relation evolving the Apple brand.

I can't wait until Apple get's a new CEO, because Cook is truly fu*king things up.

Atleast with Jobs, iPhone's would've had people still hating Apple but the innovation and designs would've made even the staunchest of haters give props.

Innovation started falling off while he was alive though. Before Cook took over. If were being honest the only innovations Apple ever had in the last 20 to 25 years has been in the iPhone and the app store. And those were a while ago. Other than that what have they innovated?

Let’s just ignore the fact that 99% of the way all smartphones work and function is based off of the first iPhone. But now Apple is the biter?

I had the Moto pure and the gestures were pretty useful. Double chop to turn on flashlight was used all the time. I still catch myself doing it on my new phone.

Y'all really think Apple invented smartphones huh? I thought you were a old n*gga. Where you too young to buy smartphones back in the early 2000s?

Put some respect on the OG's names. The original iPhone OS stole so much sh*t from Palm OS on the Treo and the Sidekick.

Then Apple went and copied a lot of gestures from the Palm Pre for the iPhone X.

You know what, I stand corrected. I actually had the HTC and Palm phones back in the day. I’ll concede that Apple took many elements from them. I will say that the iPhone was somewhat different in form and integration, though.

I have no problem admitting when I was wrong.
