The rumours about Apple working on a foldable iPhone have been in the news since they first filed a patent for a foldable display back in 2017. Since then, we have had several reports of Apple working on foldable displays, But, this time around, the prolific leaker Jon Prosser issued an update the newest Apple foldable iPhone.
In a video posted by Jon Prosser, he states that Apple is working on a clamshell design for the foldable iPhone, similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. The prototype of this design was seen in several leaks and the tech giant is testing the shells for durability, with their main focus being the hinge of the device.
“This clamshell foldable iPhone will actually feature a foldable display. I am told it will feature a folding OLED display supplied by Samsung...I am told we will not get both versions of a foldable iPhone. Like Samsung has Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip. No. It will be just this (clamshell) or other (book-style folding), at least at first,” he said in the video.
A report earlier in November claimed that Apple was receiving sample foldable displays from manufacturers such as Foxconn and New Niko, and if the testing succeeds in the given time frame then we might see a foldable iPhone by September 2022.
Foldable phones are still in the emerging stages and only a few companies have been releasing their foldable phones in the commercial marketplace. Foldable phones still fall into the category of luxury items as they have a higher price and will likely have the early adopter tax attached to them. Apple releasing a foldable phone might make the space more competitive. We will just have to wait and see.
