Apple Insider is an investor Note In the release, Kuo estimates that the foldable iPhone 8 Sachs will display QHD (1,800×3,200 pixels) more pixels than the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2’s QXGA + screen. It will have the best aspect ratio of 16: 9. It won’t be like the 19.5: 9 aspect ratio of the iPhone 12 (₹ 70,900) and the iPhone 12 Pro (110,900).
It is estimated that Apple will produce 15 to 20 million foldable iPhones in 2023. This is much less than the regular build of a regular iPhone model. Kuo said the Samsung display could also be part of the iPhone’s foldable display build. Samsung Foundry has its own display driver IC. In recent reports, it has been suggested that the LG Display will be used to make flexible displays for Apple’s foldable iPhone.
In addition to Samsung, Apple Taipei is working with Taiwan-based touch solution provider TPK. This foldable iPhone will have a silver nanowire touch solution. The homepod is already said to have a silver wire nano touch solution to provide touch input at the top. But it is not yet clear if this solution is done by TPK. The Taiwanese manufacturer, however, is a partner in offering 3D Touch to older Apple iPhone models. Kuo said Apple will be the biggest winner in the trend of new foldable devices due to the advantages of cross-product ecosystem and hardware design.
Apple has been working on its foldable iPhone for the past few months. The company has also filed some patent applications that will apply not only to the foldable design but also to the iPad lineup in the coming years. Prototypes of at least two iPhone models have been internally tested at the Foxconn factory. According to a November report, the first foldable iPhone could be launched in 2022.
