An extensive report about the future iPhone suggests that Apple will soon develop a foldable 8-inch iPhone model by 2023.
The latest report comes from trusted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. It says that a foldable iPhone might arrive in the next two years.
Moreover, the model is also said to be having an OLED, QHD+ display.
Foldable iPhone: What to expect?
According to Kuo, Apple is currently working on a folding iPhone version for its future line-up.
“Our latest survey indicates that the fast-growing foldable smartphone market has become a must-have for all major smartphone brands,” read the report.
“The foldable smartphone will boost the next super replacement cycle for high-end models.”
Furthermore, Kuo also suggests that Apple will produce around 20 million foldable iPhone models in 2023.
The product will boast 3,200-by-1,800 pixels, higher than Samsung’s current Fold, having a 7.3-inch QXGA+ screen.
The launch date is still not known when it comes to the availability of the foldable device. However, since the shipment projections are relatively small, they might arrive during the company’s regular launch event in the fall of 2023.
Samsung Display is expected to be Apple’s primary supplier for the speculated product. On the other hand, Samsung Foundry will handle display driver ICs, as per Kuo.
Kuo also said that “foldable devices will blur the product segmentations between smartphones, tablets, and laptops in the future.”
It added further that Apple “will be the biggest winner in the new foldable device trend.”
Upcoming Apple announcements of 2021
Meanwhile, the California tech giant is currently busy working on its slate for the present calendar.
After gaining immense success last year, it will continue the flow of high revenue in 2021. And for that purpose, it will soon come up with key announcements and more events.
Speaking of events, then June will reveal the highly anticipated WWDC session. It will be, once again, a virtual conference, with its main highlight being the next software version, iOS 15.
The second half of 2021 will also see an upgrade for the Apple Watch lineup, with Series 7.
However, all the tech enthusiasts will be waiting to witness the next generation of the company’s smartphone legacy.
Already excited rumors suggest that iPhone will come up with multiple changes. While some reports say that it will have a faster refresh rate, others have predicted a 1TB storage option.
