iWatch Rumour! Apple developing

A Korean tech media reports, Apple launching smart watch with flexible OLED display which is capable of bending around user’s wrist. The device itself is not expected to be flexible however the use of a flexible panel would allow Apple to create a curved screen similar to the one seen below. Report says Apple is about to launch three models of the iWatch, each featuring different screen size. The company has developed an iWatch prototype featuring a 1.5-inch screen and also planning iWatches with 1.3-inch and 1.4-inch screens.

Rival Samsung unveiled its own entrant into the smartwatch market, the Galaxy Gear, last month. The Galaxy Gear features a flat, non-flexible display and works with other Samsung mobile devices using Bluetooth connections. Rumors of an Apple smartwatch have circulated for about a year. The company has reportedly assembled a team of designers and engineers to work on the project.

Analysts had predicted the launch of an Apple smartwatch this year, but recent rumors suggested that the company is still encountering technical challenges and the iWatch will not debut until some time in 2014.
