Apple is rumored to be working on its own foldable phone that will be accompanied with the Apple stylus. This would be the company’s first-ever clamshell iPhone and is expected to expand the scope of Apple products.
According to recent reports, Apple is currently testing out the foldable displays, however, it is still in the early development stages. The chances of a foldable iPhone entering the market is extremely high since foldable smartphones have become the fastest-growing sector of flagship phones in recent years.
The tech giant has supposedly developed two prototypes, the clamshell, and the book-like shape, similar to that of its competitor, the Galaxy Z Flip. There is no confirmation regarding which prototype Apple plans to use for its foldable phone design. The foldable device is expected to target a younger demographic.
Analytics firm EqualOcean reports that the foldable iPhone will sport an OLED display and range between 7.3 and 7.6 inches. The firm also claims that the foldable iPhone will support the Apple Pencil, currently only available for iPad. It is unclear how the company plans to incorporate the Apple Pencil into the foldable device.
Like previous rumors have suggested, Apple is not planning on launching the new foldable phone next year, meaning there is still always to go before enthusiasts will be able to see this model come to fruition. In the meantime, Apple’s competitors, Google, Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo are apparently delivering its first-ever foldable phones this year.
