Apple patent shows wraparound screen on iPhone

Apple is well known for filing a huge number of patents however every now and then there comes along something that might just appear in the next iPhone.

Apple has filed a patent which shows a new iPhone design sporting a wraparound AMOLED screen, the phone appears to be similar in design to the fourth generation iPod Nano.
The unique aspect of the phone however is that the screen can be 'unrolled' or 'unfolded' thanks to a hinge or unfolding mechanism allowing the screen area to be almost doubled in size.
Along with the screen technology Apple has included a range of advanced technologies including facial-recognition, gesture control and the layering of screens to create a 3D display.
Unsurprisingly Apple has also mentioned the advantages that a fully glass body would have on radio signal, eliminating any of the problems that Apple faced when the iPhone 4 first came out.
Apple hasn't shown any interest as yet in bendable displays however it might see the benefit of being able to have a small product which can fold out to produce a larger screen, especially for the iPod Touch and Nano ranges.
