Foldable iPhones Pass Durability Test from Apple in China

Given all the rumours and leaks that have built up over the last year, Apple is definitely making its first foldable iPhones. Two of the foldable iPhone prototypes from Apple have passed the company’s internal reliability checks, according to the most recent one.

The two folding iPhone prototypes have passed their durability tests at the Foxconn factory in Shenzhen, China, according to the article. A dual-screen model of two different screens held together by a hinge in the centre was the first of the two that passed the durability test, similar to the Microsoft Surface Duo.

This will suggest that the monitor would be more durable than the Galaxy Fold, Motorola Razr, or the Mate X because it would not have a bendable delicate panel, but a hinge with two ordinary displays. This is why there is also a more durable screen on the Surface Pair than the rest of the folding smartphones.

The second foldable, however, does have a bendable screen. It is a clamshell device comparable to the Galaxy Z Flip and the Motorola Razr, as per the article. It will have a versatile Samsung-provided OLED display screen. This is in line with previous industry reports which reported that a large number of Samsung folding screens were sourced by Apple in early 2020.

Finer specifics such as dimensions or construction are largely unknown, as only shells with little to no internal shells are the prototypes. These were only intended to test the hinge mechanism’s toughness.

More specifics are not expected to appear any time soon, as some sources estimate that before 2022 or 2023 we will not see a foldable iPhone.
