According to the latest news from a reputed source, Mark Gurman, Apple is working on early research and development of a foldable iPhone.
It is reported that Apple has developed a foldable screen prototype for internal testing, but has not finalized its plan to launch a foldable iPhone. People familiar with the matter said that this development work hasn’t reached a critical point yet, which means that Apple has not yet made a complete prototype of the mobile phone in its laboratory.
Apple has discussed many foldable screen sizes internally, including one that is similar to the 6.7-inch display on the iPhone 12 Pro Max when unfolded. The screen size of current foldable mobile phones ranges from 6 inches to 8 inches.
People who have knowledge about this matter said that the hinge of the foldable screen in the test was almost hidden. Other companies, including Microsoft, have recently introduced devices with visible hinges that separate two different panels and the effect isn’t that seamless.
People who have knowledge about this also said that Apple has no plans to make major changes in this year’s iPhone series. Inside the company, engineers are considering calling the next-generation iPhone another “S” version of the device, which is usually the name of the new iPhone that has been slightly upgraded.
According to the latest report, in terms of naming, the new iPhone will be named iPhone 12s, which is a minor upgrade on the basis of iPhone 12. It is not the iPhone 13 previously rumored.
Although the new iPhone has not changed much, there is an upgrade that deserves attention. It is reported that Apple is testing an underscreen fingerprint mechanism, which is more acceptable in an environment where masks are worn and facial recognition doesn’t work that great.
Previously, Mingchi predicted in a report that the new iPhone also has four models, and the size is the same as that of the iPhone 12. The two Pro versions of ultra-wide-angle lenses will be upgraded to f/1.8, 6P and autofocus. Apart from the camera upgrade, the new iPhone will provide a better photo experience. In addition, the new iPhone may increase the storage space from up to 512GB to 1TB.
It is reported that this year’s new iPhone looks similar to iPhone 12, and will continue to have a smooth metal frame, made of aluminum alloy or stainless steel. The notch will not be completely removed, but the area will be much smaller.
