It's no secret that Apple is working on a folding smartphone. Like any other manufacturer, Apple pays attention to a market that can be seriously exploited.
Although it is early to talk about certainty, we have more information on what Cupertino's company is working on because of information from a Samsung executive.
According to Federico Casalegno, Samsung has worked on various formats of folding equipment to reach its formula. Since the Android system did not (until that moment) offer any version prepared for this type of equipment, Samsung had to get to work.
Apple is studying a folding smartphone that the screen is outside
According to Federico, the company South Korean thought the folding smartphone had more logic folding in than out. That is, the folding screen becomes unavailable when the gadget is closed.
However, the Apple is studying the reverse. That is, Tim Cook's company is working on a smartphone folding out. When closed, it will have a screen on both the front and rear.
This information confirms previous Apple patents where we saw some of Cupertino's work. In the images we can see that the cracked apple manufacturer has registered 3 patents. One with screen folding inwards. Another folding out and one that looks more like a zig zag.
When will Apple introduce its folding smartphone
If you are an Apple lover you know that it is rare that Apple releases something to the market with the intention of being the first. It took almost 10 years for iPhone to charge wirelessly. Steve Jobs was introducing the first iPhone and Palm already had wireless charging.
That is, do not expect Apple to venture out. The Cupertino company will launch a folding smartphone eventually if the market is as successful as they say. For now, we'll just wonder.
