Also, it might have a screen as huge as an iPad
According to seasoned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he is modifying his prior forecast of a 2024 release date for a foldable iPhone. According to Kuo, the earliest a gadget of this type would appear is 2025.
Apple’s prior strategy of waiting for a technology to be honed and perfected before incorporating it into their own devices is a disappointment to those of us who have been eagerly awaiting the iPhone to incorporate the newest in smartphone innovation.
The size of your monitor is important.
According to Kuo, Apple is considering adopting LG panels for a foldable MacBook or iPad. Prioritizing “medium” foldable displays first, before moving on to larger and smaller panels is what Apple is doing, according to the expert.
Kuo claims that Apple is currently testing a folding display with a 9-inch screen, although the screen size may not be used in a final product. He believes that the first folding Apple product might be a mix of the iPhone and the iPad.
According to speculations that surfaced in February, Apple isn’t in a rush to enter the foldable smartphone market and may wait until until 2025 to release its first folding gadget.
Analysis: a gradual change
Clearly, foldable cellphones have a lot of interest in them. With a tablet-sized screen that’s better for viewing movies, playing games, and multitasking, these devices perform everything a smartphone can do today – while still fitting in your pocket when closed.
At the same time, there are a number of roadblocks in the way right now. These devices are hard to come by, there’s uncertainty about their long-term endurance, and – perhaps most importantly – they’re extremely expensive.
Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 will be Samsung’s fourth folding smartphones when they are released later this year. If this is the case, we may expect to see products that last longer than ever before, as well as lower prices.
The foldable phone revolution, on the other hand, will only gain steam if additional phone manufacturers join the party. Even while Apple appears to have no plans to jump in until at least 2025, it’s possible we’ll see Google’s rumoured Pixel Fold later this year.
