Could Apple Be Launching A Foldable iPhone Soon?

Could Apple Be Launching A Foldable iPhone Soon?”

For now, the giant seems to be evaluating whether to use OLED or microLED displays for a folding device.

As per China's United Daily News, Apple has "asked Foxconn to test the screen, and also the bearings of a folding iPhone device".

Apple has always been said to have a foldable iPhone in the works and at this point, it would be silly not to. This number is considerably higher that the number of similar tests conducted for laptops - that stand between 20,000 and 30,000 times, since foldable phones will be folded and unfolded far more frequently than laptops.

The latest report gives no details of the foldable iPhone design and sources claim that the development is constantly changing. But we can't take conclusions just yet, the company can take a long time to launch a foldable device, but if it does everything right, then it can easily become one of the leading firms in this niche.

A new report coming from Economic Daily suggests that Chinese suppliers - Foxconn and New Nikko - have sent samples of folding phones to Apple. Foxconn will have the responsibility of assembling this complex device.

In other Apple news, Apple might also launch a new iPad in the first half of 2021. As per reports, the company is already getting iPhone testing samples from a Taiwanese factory.

Instead, there are in reality two independent displays held together by a hinge in the middle. We only know that it is being tested and Samsung will provide the panel for the screen.

The new report on its embrace of foldable handset technology indicates it views the innovation as promising but immature. It is not the first time we are hearing such kind of news. But Apple usually takes a different approach and waits until technological advances are fully realized before jumping on the bandwagon.

The corporation's "measure twice, cut once" ethos could result in its foldable iPhone becoming the technology's gold standard.
