So far we have two major foldable techs that are supposed to arrive in the market soon, Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X. Both are debut smartphones of this new foldable smartphone era. And when this big thing is on its way in smartphones, why would Apple be behind all this? Well today, we got an idea of how the Apple foldable smartphone might look like.
A patent design is being leaked which showcases the layout of Apple’s first foldable smartphone. As you can see from the images below, you will notice that in fig. 1A and 1B, it looks very similar to Galaxy Fold. The display folds in the inner side, and a protective layer is present to safely bend the display. This layer is supposed to be made by any ceramic material. Now the fig. 1C says something else. According to the third figure the smartphone will have two bends, which means it will fold two times. We don’t know whether it will have a second display or not. This foldable smartphone is rumoured to launch in 2020.
Now coming to the second patent, Smart Keyboard. In this patent design we can clearly see a trackpad is present on one side and keyboard + Apple Pencil space is present on the other side. We don’t know much about this gadget, but most probably it will suit best with iPads.
So that’s all the information we have as of now what are your thoughts on this Apple foldable smartphone? Do you think Apple will get success in the foldable tech with it’s first generation foldable smartphone? Let us know in the comment section below. Also stay tuned with us for more information.
