As you know, Apple has begun work on a new gadget. And if the rumors are to be believed, it will be something different from what the developers have previously suggested.
According to the latest data, the "apple" company is working on the creation of a foldable smartphone. And some users argue that Cupertino can surprise the whole world if this device becomes the 13th generation.
After the release of the first foldable phones from such well-known manufacturers as Samsung and Huawei, it was already clear that the modern user is not ready for such a step. The development of the companies was not successful, so the idea had to be postponed for better times. But, nevertheless, such projects were aimed at creating an image and had good potential, but in the distant future. And now, a few months ago it became known that Apple also decided to implement this idea.
There is information that the developers have already created a prototype of this device. In other words, there is no full-fledged smartphone yet, but there is a display. During testing, it will be decided whether there is a future for the new gadget, or it will also be necessary to postpone development. It should be noted that there is already an official name - iPhone Fold. If the testing of the new folding screens is successful, the smartphone will hit the market in the near future.
Why do you need a smartphone that folds?
The idea is to create a large screen, but if you do it in the usual standard form, then the gadget will be inconvenient. Therefore, it was decided to create something new, different and unique.
If the display of the novelty is tested, then the whole world will be able to get a large screen and at the same time the device will retain its compactness.
According to the latest data, the company is considering several screen options at once. And one of them is the standard 6.7-inch size that the iPhone 12 Pro Max has. There is also an option and as much as 8 inches. There is no information about the test results yet.
This option allows the company to create a large screen and at the same time the smartphone can easily fit in your pocket.
The prototype has an almost imperceptible hinge and is somewhat reminiscent of a previously created gadget by Samsung. But attempts to create a foldable smartphone by other companies were almost always accompanied by large noticeable loops.
Given that the display is only being tested, the world will probably not be able to see the new device in 2021. And in case of not passing the checks, the project may be closed altogether. Apple has repeatedly started developing other devices and never finished it.
The new smartphone will be able to take the company to a new level, and it will again be able to take a leading position in the market. If the developer manages to make a successful version that combines many functions, including a large screen, Apple will again, as in 2007, be able to change the vision of modern devices. But it is also likely that the phone may not come out at all.
