Apple Looking To Bring Buttons To Future iPhones?

The rumors surrounding future iPhone models have the next iterations sporting better cameras, bigger screens, and the removal of the home button. Well, according to a patent found by the folks over at Patently Apple, Apple is exploring the idea of adding a "smart bezel" around the iPhone's screen that would contain soft-touch buttons. 

The "smart bezel" would essentially be an electroluminescence display that would show information and a series of phone controls without taking up valuable screen real estate. 

Head over to Patently Apple for more info and to see more images of the patent.
