Apple Foldable iPhone. Really?
« on: February 05, 2020, 12:46:00 PM »
Apple claims they have solved the Folding Phone Problem.
It has been just now reported that they have a US patent to make an invisible fold.
Really? Believe if you see it. Maybe.

The design features an innovative hinge mechanism that would prevent creasing issues similar devices have suffered from.
Movable flaps would prevent unsightly marks by keeping the device in a semi-curved state when shut.

Stop with the News updates already...many of your sources are lame at best.

    I mean, we really WANT a foldable phone comeback, but I really don't think a foldable smartphone would be the solution. Samsung already tried it and failed. Apple, the plagiarist, is already on the drawing board with the same.

      Yeah, I think the technology will need to advance for a few more years before a foldable phone to be a success.

        Most foldable hones don't work the way they are supposedto. The screen often breaks after a while and users aren't very happy. Even if apple solved the problem of screens breaking i don't think ther is demand for the kinds of foldable phones that we are able of producing right now...

          iPhone Flip news (Updated December 18)

          A new report from Digitimes claims that Apple won't be releasing a foldable iPhone until 2022, quashing rumors that we may see an iPhone 13 Flip.

          A report  claims iPhone Flip devices are undergoing testing at Foxconn Taiwan, suggesting its release may be closer than we thought
