However, it has been rumored that Apple is exploring the idea on its own, and now, according to a post on the Chinese social network Weibo by the prominent Chinese leaker Ice Universe, it appears that Apple’s interest in foldable smartphones has now increased. According to the post, it claims that Apple apparently requested a “large number” of samples for Samsung’s foldable screen.
The publication claims that these foldable screens will be used in mobile devices, and Samsung is expected to provide Apple with samples of these foldable screens over the course of a year, which means that Apple is actually looking at creating such a device. It’s unclear what Apple’s plans are at the moment, so it remains to be seen what kind of product Apple will use these foldable displays.
These foldable screens are supposed to be used in the iPhone, but at the same time, they can also be used in iPad tablets where Apple can create larger iPad tablets with foldable screens to make them more portable. Please treat everything said so far with minimal enthusiasm, especially as companies are experimenting with new devices and prototypes all the time without necessarily bringing them to market.
