For the past couple of days, news has been roaming out in the market that Apple may launch its first foldable iPhone in 2022. It is not the first time we are hearing such kind of news. Earlier, we also got a similar kind of news regarding the foldable segment of Apple. But, Apple has not confirmed anything yet as it is currently working on the foldable technology. As per reports, the company is already getting iPhone testing samples from a Taiwanese factory.
As per the reports, Apple is currently working with Foxconn and has asked the suppliers of the required components to send the samples to Foxconn for further testing. Apple is in the works of the upcoming foldable iPhones for the very first time. So, the company has to be very precise in its work to carry forward its reputation in the technology market.
Another report has come out as well that for the display panels of the foldable iPhones Apple is shaking its hands with the South Korean tech giant Samsung. Nissei will supply the hinge of the iPhones. apart from it, Foxconn will be there for further assembling and make the first foldable iPhone ready for users.
It is expected that Apple will use an OLED or a Micro LED for the display panel. We are not quite sure whether Apple will use the AMOLED panel of Samsung for the display of its future foldable smartphones. As it will be a foldable one, we can expect a punch-hole or under-display selfie camera in place of the regular big notch selfie camera for iPhones.
So looking at all the speculations and testing, we can not expect the very first foldable iPhone to get launched before the second half of 2022.
