Recommended Posts

New Report suggest that Apple is allegedly working on foldable phones that is set to be released in September 2022. It also mentions that the company is 'actively' working on a prototype at this point in time.

Taiwanese firm money.udn published this report which claimed that Apple is working with Taiwanese companies Hon Hai, and Nippon Nippon to provide the company with materials for this new iPhone model. The foldable iPhone could feature OLED screens which will be supplied by Samsung. 

The report mentions that Apple is currently testing the screen and the hinges for the foldable iPhone as the company wants this new iPhone to be of the supreme quality. 

Nippon will handle the manufacture of the bearings for the foldable iPhones, while Hon Hai will be responsible for the assembly.

The Apple Way?

Having been following Apple since the iPhone 4s, one thing is clear : Apple isn't one for much experimentation. The company has always been keeping it simple with its focus gravitating towards power and stability over design

That had been proven once more after Apple went back to boxy design for the iPhone 12 line-up. 

Given all that, it is at the very least, surprising that Apple would go for a foldable version of the iPhone. In addition to that, the market for foldable phones is close to non-existent. Could it be an Apple power-play to exponentially create that market before rivals do?

I can still see the notch on that concept design. Hope we won't get that notch.

Also, will the phone be titled "most expensive phone ever" or "the best foldable phone?"

And since Apple is quite late at developing the foldable phone, we must expect something more special than other foldable phones. With the better quality comes the better price!!
