Phones with foldable displays have become the latest trend in the smartphone industry, and they are slightly ahead of the new and experimental under-display cameras. We have already reported that Apple has been working on their own foldable displays which are similar to the Galaxy Z Flip. Now, there is a new report which suggests that the company’s rumoured foldable phone could also support the Apple Pencil.
There is a report by Phone Arena, which cited analytics firm Omdia, the foldable iPhone could come with an OLED display between 7.3 and 7.6 inches when opened up and there is support for the Apple Pencil. We cannot imagine using the rumoured device with one hand, as phones which are 6.7 inches are already too unwieldy.
It is quite unlikely that Apple will actually launch a foldable device this year. There are reports that suggest that Apple seems to be favouring the clamshell design instead of the Galaxy Fold’s taller build, it does not seem likely that the company, which is known to spend more time but release refined iterations on technology (that include FaceID) will release a foldable device this year.
It should be mentioned here that Apple does not include support on its own for its Pencil on any Apple device at the moment and hence, it might well be possible that Samsung’s decision to support the S-Pen on its S21 Ultra series may well have influenced its decision to include support for its foldable smartphones.
So, if you are wondering when Apple’s foldable devices will hit the market, leaker Jon Prosser has suggested that there are reports of a potential launch in 2022 might just not be the case. The company has said that they have not come too far along with a foldable iPhone idea, we had reported earlier this month.
