Apple will release the first foldable iPhone. This information was disclosed on Twitter by insider John Prosser.
Prosser said that the design of the future folding smartphone of the American brand is different from the design of similar devices from other companies: “The folding iPhone is actually not folding.” The blogger said that the prototype gadget consists of two panels with screens connected by a hinge. At the same time, Samsung Galaxy Fold, Huawei Mate X and other folding smartphones on the market have a one-piece display that can be bent in several directions.
The author also noted that the prototype iPhone does not have a cutout for Face ID, as in the current devices of the brand. Instead, on the top of the screen is a small ledge in which a biometric sensor is integrated. The concept device received a rounded stainless steel frame.
Prosser later added to his report, noting that “it doesn’t seem like Apple just connected the two smartphones together.” The blogger said that, despite the hinge connecting the device’s panels in the open state, the device looks pretty solid.
The author’s leak was noticed by the well-known network insider @OnLeaks, which cast doubt on the prossera drain. In response, John said that he was checking the information coming to him and was confident in his sources.
In May, John Prosser revealed the characteristics of Apple’s planned smartphones for fall. According to the blogger, the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max will come out with 6.1 and 6.7-inch displays, respectively, the base iPhone 12 will be available in two versions – with screens of 5.4 and 6.1 inches.
