Someone showed a folding iPhone concept, but could Apple be encouraged to launch one?
Like it or not, smartphones have been inclined to follow the trend of folding. Samsung, Huawei, Motorola and Xiaomi are some of the companies that have used efforts developing their own flexible mobile devices; However, Apple has not yet expressed a sign about it.
The year 2019 was discreet in terms of this trend, since only companies such as Huawei or Samsung revealed to the world their foldable smartphones Mate X and Fold, respectively. Now, a few months after 2020, we already have other participants such as the Motorola RAZR and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.
Although initially the trend of folding was not necessarily attractive, recent devices have shown that there could be something useful in such technology that is able to reduce the size of a smartphone in half without losing a single pixel of the operability.
Although there are several companies that have decided to venture into the territory of folding smartphones, Apple has remained silent on a possible mobile device as well.
An Instagram designer and influencer named bat.not.bad dared to imagine what a folding iPhone would look like. In a video, the user shows what an iPhone 12 Flip would look like with a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip-style folding screen that was presented a few days ago.
The concept shown by the Instagram star, reveals a device with an external touch screen with which you could control the volume, access notifications and even the camera. At the press of a button, the smartphone would automatically display letting you see a full screen without notch.
The operation is practically identical to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, but the operating system is iOS, obviously.
While there are some rumors that Apple would be working on a folding iPhone, everything seems to indicate that it will be until 2021 when the company decides to show it officially.
