This week, renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of Tianfeng International talked about a potential iPhone with an 8-inch flexible screen. It is expected that such a model will appear in the Apple range in 2023. And now, renders have appeared on the web showing the possible design of the largest iPhone.
The device in these images has the same transformation principle as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold. There is no cut-out at the top of the screen typical for the current iPhone – designers see the front-facing camera and FaceID sensors embedded. With its rounded corners of the body, the smartphone resembles the iPhone X and iPhone 11 Pro – the creators think that with such contours the device will be more comfortable to hold in the hand.
Of course, such a model will receive an adapted version of iOS, which will fully reveal all the advantages of a flexible screen. Apple is rumored to be working with Corning on an all-new, very durable protective glass for a flexible display, which is expected to reduce the effect of creases at the fold.
