Apple may have sent a foldable iPhone to Foxconn for testing

1 min read

Apple has begun sending the foldable iPhone to its assembly partner Foxconn for testing. The expected release date is September 2022.

According to the report, Foxconn’s testing focused on the use of OLED or micro-LED, because the choice of the screen will ultimately affect the way the device is produced.

The report did not provide more information about the design of the foldable device but pointed out that Samsung will provide the panel for the screen, which may confirm the rumors that Apple has ordered samples of the foldable display from the Korean company.

Israeli media quoted reports from “reliable sources” that Apple may launch a foldable iPhone as early as November 2022. Earlier news said that Apple is testing foldable screens. The company may have purchased foldable screens from Samsung. After purchasing these screens, Apple did not rush to release foldable phones but first conducted quality tests on them. It is still unclear which display technology Apple will use on the foldable iPhone. If everything goes according to plan, it may take three to four years to switch to a microLED display.
