iPhone Fold is assumed to be launched with an 8-inch foldable OLED display soon in 2023. Apple is planning to throw 20 million Foldable units in that year.
Apple analyst Ming Chi Kou gives a hint of a Foldable iPhone with QHD+ display, 8-inch screen size, 3200 x 1800p resolution, and many more. About the Fold’s direction, whether the fold will be a vertical or horizontal orientation, that has not been confirmed yet.
“Our latest survey indicates that the fast-growing foldable smartphone market has become a must-have for all major smartphone brands. The foldable smartphone will boost the next super replacement cycle for high-end models.”Says Kou
As mentioned above Apple decided to launch 20 million units. Coming with a new device in the market might take time to be settled efficiently. Thus Apple planned to limit the production of iPhone Fold to a 20 million mark. However, That leads to another point, that is, in 2023 there will be traditional iPhone lineups along with the Apple foldable.
Display and Touch Panels
Apple’s long-time display supplier Samsung will be supplying the necessary display panels for this foldable. According to Kou, Samsung will handle display driver ICs. Apple Foldable will be a boost for Samsung’s Foldables as well. But there are potential leaks that LG might work with Apple to provide displays for the iPhone Fold.
Assuming that Samsung will be providing the display, Kou mentioned that Apple will avoid Samsung’s Y-Octa touch technology for TPK’s silver nanowire touch solution. Apple says TPK touch solutions are durable and compatible with foldable along with rollable displays. TPK handles medium to large size screens very effectively and the touch panel seems more optimized.
“We predict that foldable devices will blur the product segmentations between smartphones, tablets, and laptops in the future. With its cross-product ecosystems and hardware design advantages, Apple will be the biggest winner in the new foldable device trend.”Kou mentioned
After a long time, Apple is on the way to join the Foldable club. Along with Samsung, Xiaomi has now foldable in the market. Apple will be coming to this market with either a 7.5-inch or 8-inch foldable in 2023 predicted Kou back in March. Apple iPhone Fold holds a lot of excitement in the tech world. Let’s expect something out of the box from Apple.
