The iPhone 13 isn’t even released yet, but now comes word that Apple may be working on not one but two foldable smartphones that are expected to debut in 2023. That’s according to a new report in Business Korea, which also suggests that Apple could be collaborating with LG on a 7.5-inch OLED foldable display panel.
The source also claimed that the two foldables could mimic the concept of Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3, meaning that one of the devices could feature a clamshell design, while the other could be a convertible-phablet. There is no mention of the possible names for Apple’s potential foldables, though many refer to one of the devices as the iPhone Flip.
As of right now, Samsung is producing some of the best foldable phones on the market, thanks to the recently released Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3. What’s interesting is that Business Korea’s article also references an industry insider, who firmly believes that “Apple will not be able to lead the foldable smartphone market for a while with the market being led by Samsung Electronics and Chinese manufacturers such as Huawei and Xiaomi releasing such products.”
