We all know Apple still wants us to wait so long for a foldable iPhone, but a Chinese YouTuber’s frustration with waiting resulted in the first modded foldable iPhone that gives us an idea of how a foldable iPhone will look.
The developer has made it possible by using iPhone X and Motorola Razr (2019), and also, its development took a lot of time, so let’s discuss all the details.
Apple’s Foldable iPhone Might Take Time, But Someone Built It With Motorola Razr
The YouTuber from China, whose channel name is Tech Aesthetics, published a video yesterday that took over the internet because he built a foldable iPhone by using custom parts from other smartphones.
You can also watch this video below. Besides, it is getting popular in the community as its building process took over a year of hard work from the developer and his team.
And what makes it more special is its creation as its foldable chassis is created from a Motorola Razr, and the other design and other internals are done with iPhone X.
The outcome smartphone is named iPhone V by its creator because it can be folded in V-shape like the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip series, but it is not flexible like this.
While they were experimenting with making its display foldable, they used 37 iPhone X screens before finding the final one, and finally, they went with flexible OLED. And its other specifications are the same as iPhone X.
Besides hardware details, this iPhone V runs on iOS, and to make its screen responsive to split-screen action, they have used jailbroken mods.
Separately, a week ago, Samsung also targeted Apple in its ad as it is rumored to launch a foldable iPhone for the years, but we haven’t seen it yet.
Also, Apple will reportedly not unveil a foldable smartphone, as Mark Gurman’s recently noted Apple is working on a foldable iPad which would arrive in 2025.
