Apple reportedly working on Apple Pencil support for its foldable phone
The phone is said to use Samsung’s flexible OLED display

Folding phones seem to be all the rage now with Samsung and Motorola jumping into the fold. Not being one to be left behind, Apple has also thrown its hat into the ring with its own foldable phone design. As we reported earlier, Apple is testing two different foldable form-factors, one of them being a clamshell design. The phone is said to use Samsung’s flexible OLED display. In an earlier 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.

There have been other reports of the phone being compatible with the Apple Pencil. This could work in the phone’s favour as it will essentially turn the device into a mini tablet and open up more options for work and entertainment. Even artists will get a big boost as being able to draw and create on a 7-inch screen would be a cool option. As of now there is no word on when Apple is planning on releasing its foldable phone or if it is even working on one. 

Do take this news with a pinch of salt, as we have stated that Apple has not official announced anything regarding a foldable phone or compatibility with the Apple Pencil. 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.
