Don't Wait for a Foldable iPhone Yet
Apple might be working on a foldable version of the iPhone, but there's no guarantee it releases one in 2021 or 2022 for that matter.
Samsung's launched a new Galaxy Z Fold 2 with a foldable display. There are also a number of other foldable phones on the market.
The iPhone 12 won't have a foldable display so Apple will wait until 2021, or later, to deliver its own foldable device.
We've seen some patents hint at a foldable iPhone but this doesn't confirm anything.
Leaker Jon Prosser says that Apple is working on a "foldable" iPhone, but that it isn't really a foldable. The The current prototype reportedly has two separate display panels on a hinge.
He says the current model features round and stainless steel edges like the iPhone 11 design. It reportedly doesn't have a notch.
Prosser hasn't put out a potential window for the device's launch which means its arrival could be a long ways out.
A leaker believes Apple is working on a foldable device that will be more like an iPad than an iPhone. They claim the device will debut in 2023.
Until we get a more concrete timeline, you should operate on the assumption that a foldable iPhone is coming much later, if it comes at all.
