Two Models Of The Foldable iPhone Have Passed Testing, According To A Leak

Samsung and Motorola have cause for concern.

iPhone Flip rumors have been circulating for some time, but if new leaks from supply chain sources in Asia are accurate, Apple is seriously considering entering the foldable phone market to compete with Samsung and Motorola.

According to sources at the Taiwanese website United Daily News (opens in a new tab), Apple has commissioned supplier Foxconn to create two prototype shells with displays. The two designs for foldable take radically different approaches.

The initial design resembles the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip and the Motorola Razr. It is a candy bar-style slab that is folded in half. The other resembles the Microsoft Surface Duo in which two screens are hinged together and close like a book. Uncertainty exists as to whether Apple is developing two distinct foldable products or merely experimenting with various concepts for a single foldable iPhone.

To add to the intrigue, Apple may be developing a radical foldable concept that could fundamentally alter the foldable conversation. A patent application published on December 31 describes a foldable display that can fold both inward and outward, like the Galaxy Z Flip and Huawei Mate Xs, respectively. With such flexibility in folding motion, it would be comparable to using a digital spiral notebook.

The combination of these rumors with other patents filed by Apple, such as one for a self-healing foldable display, could indicate that something is imminent.

The question for Apple fans awaiting a foldable phone is, of course, when. According to a report from Digitimes (opens in new tab), we won’t see a foldable iPhone until 2022 at the earliest.

Remember that these new supply chain leaks do not indicate that Apple has finalized anything. It’s clearly still early days for the concept at Cupertino. Apple may opt for a design similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2, or it may pursue an entirely different strategy. With so many unknowns, you should probably trade in your iPhone 8 for an iPhone 12 until then.
