Apple To Launch Its First Foldable iPhone
The South Korean giant Samsung recently unveiled its first foldable smartphone cum tablet, although still as a prototype and as the South Korean giant Samsung is still preparing for its commercial launch in 2019.
However, now according to the latest reports, there will be other manufacturers like Huawei, who will also join the South Korean giant Samsung. Hence, the tech giant Apple now seems not to want to be left behind, and before they get too late they have now presented a new design patent for a folding OLED screen. Yes, you are thinking the right thing, as it clearly means that the tech giant Apple could soon launch its own foldable iPhone.
As the tech giant Apple requested in March of this year 2018, in the United States Patent and Trademark Office, a design and technology patent for the manufacturing of folding OLED screens. Basically, in the patent, the tech giant Apple registered a folding design inward and a second folding design outwards as you can see in the below sketch.
Basically, if we talk about the patent then let me clarify that in this patent which is registered by the tech giant Apple it is described only about the system that allows the OLED screen to be foldable.
However, for now, we can only speculate about a foldable iPhone, hence, we can’t confirm that the tech giant Apple will launch it. As the tech giant Apple has hundreds of design and technology patents that have never ended up becoming a product.
Moreover, if we talk about the South Korean giant Samsung and the well-known Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei then let me clarify that they are already on the process of finalizing the details to launch their first commercial version of the foldable smartphone during the next year 2019. Hence, it is expected that in 2019 we will see lots of technological evolutions in the segment of smartphones. So, what do you think about this?
