US tech giant, Apple is expected to unveil new iPhone models for the 10th anniversary of the culture-changing Smartphones.
The tech giant has sent out invitations to a September 12 media event for the products in the Steve Jobs Theatre at its new “spaceship” campus in Silicon Valley.
Some reports say a new iPhone will include a high-quality, edge-to-edge screen with a notch in the top for an ear-piece and an extra camera supporting 3D facial recognition and selfies.
Some speculate that the new handset will have a glass backing that offers wireless charging.
Apple has declined to comment on speculation, which has included talk of as many as three new iPhone handsets, including a premium model priced at around $1,000.
The most dramatic changes were expected in the premium model, which could go so far as to get rid of a ‘home’ button that has been a main control feature since the iPhone made its debut in 2007.
Flicking or swiping gestures could replace the home button function, enabling the handset face to appear almost all-screen.
The iPhone could also get more rounded corners.Please subscribe to our newsletter
