TheIphone 6 is still several months away from its launch, but there are already many rumors about the future smartphone ofApple. The latest, the Korea Herald, suggests that this iPhone 6 and the Galaxy S5 from Samsung could both be made without edges.

Citing a source in the sector, the Korea Herald reports Apple is currently testing a prototype iPhone 6 with an edge-to-edge screen and having a fingerprint scanner (Touch ID). It is not the first time that the fact that the Cupertino company can use a screen without borders is mentioned, so as to increase the size of the screen while having a minimal impact on the design of the device.

Other rumors have suggested that Apple will be releasing two iPhones this year with larger screens, a better camera, and maybe even a sapphire crystal screen powered by solar energy … If all of this is true, no one doubt that the next smartphone of the American giant is a success.
