Right now, Apple is working on a foldable iPhone, which will be made available to the general public no sooner than 2024, according to the report shared by senior analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Kuo shared the news explicitly and said that iPhones with touch ID behind the backs will be made available to the public in 2023. In his earlier statement, he predicted that the phones with touch ID behind the back would be released this year. Still, now it seems that the development has been slower than it was expected. Additionally, it might be the case that the reports shared of the iPhones must be of the models available in the market in the coming years.
In a similar note shared by the senior analyst, he predicted that the foldable iPhone would be launched in 2024, almost a year later than expected. Business new Korea shared a report and said that Apple and LG have been trying to develop a foldable OLED panel for quite a while now and are using etching to decrease the thickness of the phone. Business News Korea trusts that Apple’s first foldable smartphone will come under a clamshell design. On the other hand, it says that the company is currently working on dual foldable designs, one whose upper and lower sides will meet each other, and the other model, whose right and left sides will meet each other.
The senior analyst Ming-Chi Kuo shared a report and said that they have revised their overall forecast and are delaying the launch of the iPhone with under the display fingerprint to 2023 and will release the foldable phone in 2024. Because of the slower development process, he believes that the company will get hurt by the shipments in 2022 and 2023.
The upcoming foldable designed iPhone with the Galaxy Z Flipped design will be more user-friendly and affordable than the other competing rivals in the market. Apple is also currently working on manufacturing an iPhone with a foldable display that is similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z fold. On top of that, the iPhone-making company has recently ordered a batch of foldable displays from Samsung, shedding more light on the fact that they are working on bringing out a new iPhone. A company official has said that the company might discontinue its iPad Mini after launching the foldable iPhones.
There are no details as to what other specifications the iPhone might include. There is no news whatsoever on what factors the company will work on while manufacturing their new iPhones. In any case, 2024 is a long way to go, and all of us are waiting impatiently for Apple to officially confirm the rumors that are spreading in the market are true to their core. With the new rumors spreading in the market like wildfire, people are looking forward to an apple to confirm the news. They are hoping that the company will also work on meeting the expectations of their customers.
