When it comes to premium devices, many people think of the Apple brand with the Apple logo. The company’s new iPhone 12 series was launched a month ago, which caused quite a stir after the launch. However, there is no end to the practice in the smartphone market with Apple’s folding phone. Over the past few months, it has been heard that the American company has started working on foldable devices. Recently this demand has become even stronger. In fact, several reports today claim that Apple has instructed its device maker Foxconn to build a test unit for the upcoming Foldable iPhone.
Apple has reportedly asked its suppliers to send the necessary components to a company called Hon Hai (the Chinese branch of Apple’s iPhone contract maker Foxconn) to make foldable iPhones. The Chinese company has been tasked with making a foldable iPhone for testing. So for sure, Apple is preparing to start testing its foldable phone. However, it is expected that this foldable smartphone will not hit the market before the second half of 2022.
Earlier, it was reported that South Korean electronics giant Samsung may supply a display panel for Apple’s foldable iPhone, while another company called Nissei will provide the device. Foxconn, however, will be responsible for assembling the first foldable iPhone.
It is also rumored that Apple may use OLED or micro-LED display panels in this particular smartphone, which will also have a significant impact on the device’s manufacturing process. It’s fun to have a micro-LED screen on the device, but let’s see if Apple has reached the stage where it can be used.
Already brands like Samsung, Huawei and Motorola have occupied quite a large space in the foldable smartphone market. Chinese companies such as Xiaomi, Oppo or Vivo are also reportedly considering such devices. So, it is inevitable to be curious about Apple’s first foldable device, one of the largest technology companies in the world!
