Top analyst says foldable iPhone coming in 2023; up to 20 million units will ship
While the specifications and design of the collapsible iPhone are not known, Kuo says Samsung will be the exclusive supplier of the collapsible OLED panels that Apple will use. The previous analyst, who originally said the collapsible iPhone would have a 7.5-inch to 8-inch screen, has narrowed it down to an 8-inch screen.
One foldable was designed as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold, while the other model looked similar Galaxy Z Flip. The former opens from a 6.2-inch screen for a 7.6-inch tablet, and the latter opens from a pocket size to become a 6.7-inch handset with a high and thin screen. Allegedly, Apple is leaning towards the clamshell design of the Galazy Z Flip.
