Apple commissions Foxconn to build prototype foldable iPhone



It was revealed that tech giant Apple has begun sending clamshell iPhones to its assembly partner Foxconn for prototype testing. It is worth saying that more and more information about the company’s folding smartphone has appeared on the network recently. Apparently, this device may soon be ready for testing.

The Chinese company was tasked with making a prototype clamshell iPhone for testing. It is expected that Apple will officially present this new product no earlier than the second half of 2022. It is also reported that this device will receive flexible displays from Samsung. At the same time, Nissei will be engaged in the production of the hinge mechanism. Foxconn, in turn, will assemble the first folding iPhones. Another source said Apple is choosing between OLED and MicroLED displays for its clamshell smartphone. In addition, the choice of display will affect the manufacturing method of the upcoming device. While MicroLEDs are superior in performance, the company has yet to find out if they are suitable for use in the upcoming iPhones.

It is worth saying that Samsung, Huawei and Motorola have already launched their clamshell smartphones on the market. At the same time, while Apple is just about to release its first flip phone, other companies intend to release devices of the 2nd and 3rd generation. In addition, Chinese companies such as Xiaomi, OPPO and Vivo are also planning to release their first folding smartphones. OPPO recently unveiled its OPPO X 2021 concept smartphone with a sliding display. However, for now, this is a conceptual device, which may not yet receive a commercial version.
