According to one of the most trusted Apple analysts, Ming-Chi Kuo, the Cupertino-based technology giant is working on its own foldable iPhone and will be ready in 2023. The report even has a few specifications for us as well.
With the help of some industry sources, Kuo was able to gather some vendor information. For example, the screen will be approx. 8 “in diagonal when unfolded and have a QHD + resolution. The supplier will again be Samsung, but will use silver nanowire touch technology developed by TPK due to its compelling advantages over Samsung’s Y-Octa approach. said foldable unit is estimated to be between 15 and 20 million units.
The report also mentions other competing brands such as Oppo, vivo, Xiaomi and Honor. They will all take part in the collapsible race at the end of this year or at the beginning of the next with a total volume of approx. 17 million units.
Keep in mind, though, that even Kuo says the news is highly speculative, and if the market doesn’t adopt the new form factor, Apple could easily scrape all foldable plans.
