First look at the folding iPhone (iPhone Flip)

Over the past few months, there have been many reports of the world's first foldable phone from the company.

Apple.According to a recent report, Apple is working on its first foldable phone, which will not arrive until 2023. The latest report from John Prosser shows that Apple is "done away" with the new foldable iPhone form factor. In the video we see "iPhone Flip". Also, the launch strategy for this device will come as a surprise.

Foldable iPhone

According to Prosser, Apple will not usepopular tablet-phone design for its first foldable phone. “[Apple] leans heavily in favor of a clamshell [iPhone design], ... My sources aren't entirely sure why, all they know is a clamshell that now has most of the attention behind the scenes ... One of the goals of this foldable iPhone in style clamshells - offer it in several colors, for example fun colors similar to the basic iPhone models ... "

Colors that seem insignificant -probably one of the most interesting aspects of this latest leak. As for the price, there is a small surprise here. A foldable iPhone could cost $ 1,499, according to John Prosser. It's cheaper than some foldable smartphones on the market. However, this price is too good to be true. Considering that the top-end iPhone 13 can cost up to $ 1,500, this is unlikely. However, the "cheap" foldable iPhone could be a game-changer for Apple.

Could this be the reason that the company chose a clamshell (flip)? The size of the device may be iPhone 12 mini, and after the coup it becomes larger.

As for the launch date, John Prosser's previous launch announcement was for September 2022. However, he also believes that Apple's plan may change.

At this point, all reports state thatthe first foldable iPhone will feature Samsung's flexible OLED panel. Additionally, Apple will ditch the notch it introduced on the iPhone X in 2017. The entire front end is completely free of any sensors. Plus, the bezels are pretty much the same on all four sides. However, it is important to note that this description is not from the official image. The real novelty may differ significantly.
