We may see a foldable device from Apple in 2025.
Although foldable devices have been on the market for years, the truth is that we do not have any proposals from Apple. There are only rumors and patents that predict the arrival of a device with these characteristics. It seems that a foldable iPhone is closer than we might think, since according to the latest rumors, Apple and Samsung would be working side by side on this project.
Although it is rumored that the apple company’s first folding device would not be an iPhone, those from Cupertino and Samsung would already be working on it, as well as other future devices of the same type. That is the information that comes to us from The Elec.
Apple and Samsung, two close rivals
According to sources from South Korea, Apple and Samsung would be working on the next and first folding device from Cupertino. Apparently, Samsung Display would have reorganized its team so that part of it would focus on the development of the folding device for Apple.
According to The Elec report, Samsung Display and LG Display would be developing components for future Apple folding products. These components include 20.25-inch panels, although it is not yet known if they are intended for a particular product or if they are part of the panel manufacturing process.
On the other hand, several analysts claim that we would see a foldable iPhone in 2025 at the earliest, so it would not be presented in the short term. What they expect from DigiTimes is that Apple present a foldable device at the end of 2024, but not an iPhone, but an iPad. That is why we said a few lines ago that Apple’s first folding device would not be an iPhone.
What several reports agree on, including today’s, is that Production of Apple’s folding panels would begin in 2024so we could see the first Apple device of this type in 2025. Either a new iPad or an iPhone 17 model. They could launch the iPhone 17 and then a special model, as happened with the iPhone X in 2017 .
Two years ago, the foldable iPhone was all over the headlines. Several sources claimed that Apple was working on a foldable iPhone, without being clear which model to launch. In the factories, there were two prototypes of panels, some shell-shaped and others book-shaped. These panels were subjected to tests that consisted of opening and closing them 100,000 times, but in the blink of an eye, the topic stopped being talked about.
