Rumors about a possible foldable iPhone continue to multiply and strengthen in terms of sources. Now, DigiTimes is the one who shared a report from industrial sources, which ensures that Apple is already working on the development of foldable OLED panels for your phones. It could mean a lot of things, but the bottom line is that it has never been clearer that this experience is real.
According to DigiTimes itself, LG Display would support the development of this panel for your iPhone. However, that would not imply that it was in the production line. In fact, it could be limited to prototyping or other test projects before getting down to business with the device itself. Of course, if you were part of the production line, you wouldn’t be alone.
According to rumors, Samsung would also be present in the development and the production of new screens. In fact, it wouldn’t be strange for Apple to apply solutions that are already present in current AMOLED panels.
Building on that experience, the Cupertino company would continue to deliver one of the best viewing experiences on the market, or at least on par with what it already offers at Samsung. Let’s not forget that Super Retina XDR displays are among the best on the market in the mobile phone industry, even though they don’t yet have TruMotion.
At the moment, we can do little more than dream about what this foldable iPhone could be. We don’t know if we’ll ever see it, but if we do, it’s probably one of the biggest changes to the iPhone experience throughout its history, even greater than what the iPhone gave when it upgraded to the iPhone X.
If all the rumors are true, 2023 should be the right year for its official launch. In addition, it would also be the first terminal in the range compatible with Apple Pencil, which would make it even more attractive to an audience looking for an experience more like a tablet than a phone.
