Apple could release a foldable iPhone in 2020

This time it was one of the analysts of Bank of America, specializing in Apple products, who says there is not much left to know about the next big in redesigning the iPhone, after the drastic changes in the iPhone X that we saw past year (drastic in terms of previous models of Apple catalog, not regarding the competition). "Our checks also suggest that Apple is working with suppliers on a foldable phone (that potentially could double up as a tablet) for launch in 2020".

Apple is reportedly mulling to unveil in 2020 an iPhone that folds, CNBC has reported citing several Apple suppliers.

Apple has filed a patent application for a foldable device.

The suggestions for this year's iPhones coincide with previous reports that there will be three 2018 iPhone models, all of which will be based on the iPhone X. The report on a foldable iPhone, meanwhile, follows up on an October 2017 report that claimed Apple is working with LG for a foldable display.

Mohan said Apple is working with Asian suppliers on a foldable iPhone that could also be used as a tablet for launch in 2020. This would be Apple's second attempt at the partnership above with LG to find the screen that defines the iPhone of the future.

Since the announcement, we've been getting several reports of the devices that Apple will be launching, and the latest one, from MacRumours, suggests that Pencil support is coming to a low-priced iPad.

As we say, the foldable iPhone could be a reality sooner than expected; it is likely that it is ready to be presented in 2010.

Besides, Samsung and Lenovo have already showcased smartphones with foldable screens, but neither of the devices saw the light of the day or released on the market.

Which other smartphone companies are building foldable phones? It would have a full-screen display with a flexible area in the middle that bends to separate the screen into halves (like a book). Furthermore, following the rumours and patents out there, it seems like foldable screens in the tech world could be the next form factor.
