While there are no rumors to suggest we’ll get a iPhone 12 Flip this year, there’s no doubt Apple is researching flexible displays and will eventually launch a handset with one.
The questions, of course, are when we’ll see it, and what it’ll look like. Patents and concepts from independent designers give us clues, but ultimately, Apple is not a company known for taking design risks. By the time it does release a foldable phone, you can be sure the technology will be more established than it is today.
So what do we know about Apple’s foldable phone plans? We’ve compiled the latest reports and concepts in this guide. Overtime, we hope to gain a clearer picture of what is sure to be the most revolutionary iPhone yet when it finally does see the light of day.
When will Apple launch a foldable iPhone?
The next iPhones in the pipeline are part of the iPhone 12 series, and we have a pretty solid idea of how these devices are going to shake out. We expect iPhone 12 models at 5.4- and 6.1-inch sizes alongside iPhone 12 Pro devices at 6.1-and 6.7 inches. The Pro models will likely feature triple-lens rear cameras with LiDAR sensors, potentially 120Hz Pro Motion displays and faster 5G connectivity, thanks to millimeter-wave support.
