The uniqueness of the proposed device lies in its absolutely new shape, form-factor and the design that offers “advanced touch- and gesture-based input” all over.

The publication said, “Apple also wants to add tilt controls allowing a user to turn pages of a document.”
The publications reveal that if the patent materializes in to an actual product, Apple will go with a Czochralski process, a method through which “synthetic gemstones like sapphire crystal” can be created to be used in manufacturing.
My Smart Price stated, “A flexible display is glued to the inside of this hollow sapphire cover using transparent adhesives in a number of configurations.” It will provide a seamless design, however other Android phones “exhibit a conspicuous seam where the ends of the flexible display meet.”
