Currently, Samsung really dominates the foldable phone market, so it won’t be too surprised if many companies want to undermine Samsung’s dominance, one of which is Apple, which has always been the strongest competitor. There have been rumors a while back about the possibility of Apple making their foldable phone, and now it seems we can roughly predict when the phone will be released.
According to a report by Display Supply Chain Consultants, according to an analyst, named Ross Young, he believes that Apple may be able to launch its foldable phone in the next few years. However, it is not certain when exactly, which is clearly not in the near future. According to Young, he believes the foldable phone will arrive as early as 2023.
This means that it’s almost impossible to see Apple’s foldable phone in 2022, and to be honest even in 2023 it’s not very convincing. However, according to Young’s report, any number of years after 2023 is a possibility, even if that means 2025, 2027, or even 2030. However, if Apple does plan to make foldable phones within that time frame, Samsung will surely dominate, with technology that is far more advanced than now.
Keep in mind that other rumors are floating around suggesting that Apple may actually be planning to replace the iPhone with an AR headset within 10 years, so in this scenario the release of a foldable phone over such a long period of time becomes irrelevant or perhaps the phone will act as a transition device.
