Apple To Launch Foldable iPhone That Doubles As Tablet In 2020

The more popular the app the more highly prized the top spot

"Our checks also suggest that Apple is working with suppliers on a foldable phone (that potentially could double up as a tablet) for launch in 2020".

Apple's developing an all-new design in collaboration with Asian "partners" for the foldable iPhone and release it by 2020, says Bank of America Merrill Lynch. From rumors about a possible foldable iPhone to talk of trouble for the company's iPhone X, it was a decidedly interesting week for Apple fans.

Mohan gathered this information after meeting with several Apple suppliers in Asia. Previous reports speculated that a new Apple Pencil could be in the works and that the next-generation peripheral could have a magnetic system, which would allow it to easily attach to the side of an iPad.

Why did Apple team up with LG for bendable display? Can Apple do better? That has never been confirmed, but considering we're once again seeing a prediction and there was some relatively reliable information late a year ago, it's certainly possible we'll see a 2020 release of a foldable phone following the iPhone 11.

Apple seems to be working on a foldable iPhone with an entirely different iPhone design that can be opened and closed like a book.

In terms of specifications, Tekz24 believes that the iPhone SE 2 will come equipped with a 4 to 4.2-inch display, 2GB of RAM, 32/128GB of internal storage, 1700mAh battery, A10 quad-core processor and the latest version of iOS.

As for Apple's foldable iPhone, it remains to be seen if the company succeeds in creating a revolutionary device that will awe the market and strengthen its position in the consumer electronics industry.

Since the announcement, we've been getting several reports of the devices that Apple will be launching, and the latest one, from MacRumours, suggests that Pencil support is coming to a low-priced iPad.

The idea of a foldable smartphone is one that just won't die.

Apple and Samsung aren't the only tech companies working on smartphones with foldable screens as Lenovo and Huawei also joined them. The larger phones we have now are already teetering on small tablet sizes and it's generally accepted that the new foldable phones will address some sizing issues while giving options more when bigger screen area may be desired.

Chinese phone-maker ZTE actually released just such a device, the Axon M, late a year ago, but it failed to impress critics.
