Apple: Trials with Two Foldable Cell Phones Underway

Apple has taken another step towards developing a foldable smartphone. According to Taiwanese newspaper reports Economic Daily News, at least two different models are in internal testing phases and have gone through the durability stages, especially in the recurrent use of the hinge that separates the two screens.

As they are two very different prototypes, it is not yet possible to determine whether Apple plans to launch two folding models or will approve only one of the versions — even neither device can be announced, should it fail in later stages. The processes are underway at a Foxconn factory in the Shenzhen region of China.

One of the approved models has two screens that are connected when the device is opened, generating a single panel in a very natural way. The second would be in flip format, and a format more similar to the Samsung Galazy Z Flip.


According to rumors from the last few months of 2020, the company has already ordered screens from Samsung for mass production of the device, has innovative hinge technology and plans to launch one of the models only next year.
