Apple is currently working on the development of a new iPhone model with a flexible eight-inch screen that would hit the market in 2023, according to the analyst specializing in Apple Ming-Chi Kuo.
The first iPhone with a folding screen will have an 8-inch panel with QHD + resolution that can be folded thanks to the use of a flexible OLED glass material, as Kuo sources and MacRumors say.
The flexible panel will be manufactured by Samsung Display (SDC), the South Korean unit specialized in displays, and Samsung will also be responsible for providing the screen drivers.
Likewise, it is expected that the terminal will make use of the technology of silver nanowires under the screen, which will be carried out by TPK and which will allow touch control using not only one but several hinge.
The device is expected to hit the market in 2023 and a total of 15-20 million units of the first foldable iPhone model will be produced.
