What’s the truth about the rumored foldable iPhone?
Let’s start with what always raises a little more doubt: leaks. Although for several years there was a certain run Run As for the plans Apple in this regard, only this year, reputable analysts with sources close to the company have confirmed that two prototypes have been successfully tested … Of these, it was hardly described what they would be, although a small idea remained in the air.
Apparently, one of them was in the so-called “flip-format” or “shell format”, very similar to Samsung Galaxy Flip. Another, for his part, said that it could have up to three folds, suggesting a normal folded size, and one with a much larger screen when fully unfolded, and that, again comparing it to Samsung, it would have similar styling Galaxy Fold…
According to them, the tests they passed were quite remarkable in that they tried to open and close every 10,000 times. Tough endurance tests that ensured they were ready to go to market without fear of premature hacking, which is one of the hurdles that still affect many people interested in this type of smartphones.
And while these leaks may be more or less reliable, you can believe them or not, there is something that is ultimately irrefutable: patents … Over the years Apple has published numerous records in the United States Patent and Trademark Office describing technologies that may be applicable to these devices. Some patents have been granted and others are pending or have been rejected. While this does not indicate an upcoming release, it does give confidence that such an opportunity is at least being considered.
This video already features “iPhone Flip”
YouTube Channel ConceptsiPhone is known for creating compelling device concepts Applewhich are not only unofficial and not even based on real leaks, but also let the imagination fly, being able to see what the future equipment of the brand might be like. This week was published exactly the one in which the designer “announces” that Apple iPhone Flip seems to be.
Aspects of this concept stand out, such as the already well-known M1 chip from Apple for Mac and iPad Pro, fingerprint scanner and other hardware items. However, at the design level that would have attracted the most attention at first, the designer tried to follow the aesthetic line that the iPhone 13 would have, with a fully unfolded case around the edges, a reduced notch, and even a triple notch. rear camera. And all with a center crease in true style Galaxy Flip.
A funny concept in which we emphasize once again that this is not a leak or something like that. We don’t yet know if the foldable iPhone will arrive one day or in what format it will be. But for us, the least fun imagining it is with this type of video. What do you think about it? Would you dare to buy it if it was real?
