We all know very well that it is not the first time that we talk about a technology in which the main mobile phone manufacturers are already beginning to study. As in previous occasions, we have talked about the possible flexible Samsung smartphone that would come in the form of Samsung Galaxy X, and now it is the tech giant Apple who could already be working on a folding iPhone.
Bank of America: Apple Is Preparing A ‘Foldable’ iPhone
It is not the first time that we talk about a technology in which the main mobile phone manufacturers are already beginning to study. As in previous occasions, we have talked about the possible flexible Samsung smartphone that would come in the form of Samsung Galaxy X, and now it is the tech giant Apple who could already be working on a folding iPhone.
Already last year the South Korean giant LG warned that one of its divisions was shaping a team to develop a new project, at the request of the tech giant Apple, which would be responsible for designing a flexible screen for a future folding iPhone. Since then we had not had any news about it until now.
There are several analysts who predict the arrival of the South Korean giant Samsung’s first folding smartphone for this year, something that would have made move the Cupertino to avoid falling into the mistakes of the past and present technologies months after they do their top competitors in Android.
Ready for 2020?
As we say, the folding iPhone could be a reality sooner than expected, it is expected that it is ready to be presented in 2010. That assumes that the phone would be presented after two new generations of iPhone: 2018 and 2019.
This time he was one of the analysts of Bank of America, specializing in the tech giant Apple products, who says there is not much left to know the next big redesign of the iPhone, after the drastic changes in the iPhone X that we saw last year (drastic in terms of previous models of the Apple catalog, not regarding the competition). This main change would come in the form of flexible screens, resulting in a hypothetical folding iPhone.
The analyst reports that the American company is already working with suppliers to create this folding phone, which would be launched on the market within two years. This would be the tech giant Apple’s second attempt after the aforementioned partnership with LG to find the screen that defines the iPhone of the future.
The key to this technology is found in the development of OLED panels. This type of displays has a fundamental difference compared to the classic LCD panels since they are formed by independent pixels that make the screens more flexible. The investigation around these screens has the key that the folding iPhone arrives just in the announced terms.
