Concept video for iPhone foldable shows rumored square triple camera setup and brilliant triangular packaging
The rumored iPhone foldable is not likely to see the light of day anytime soon. Apple fans may be clamoring for a challenger to the Galaxy Fold or Mate X, but as we all know, the Cupertino company likes to arrive late to the table with a product that has borrowed the best parts of its rivals and then refined them. So while we wait for the perfect foldable smartphone, designer Antonio De Rosa has decided to give users a taste of what might actually be delivered by Apple.
The Apple iPhone X Fold (surely “iPhold” is a winning name?) shown in the concept video is undeniably captivating with its bezel-less display and book-like mechanism for folding and unfolding. The rear sports that triple camera setup in a square housing that many suspect the actual foldable iPhone will feature, and it looks perfectly in place. There’s no sign of a crease either, in case you were shocked by the reality of the Samsung Galaxy Fold’s display.
But arguably one of the highlights of the clip is the triangular packaging. It’s a nice touch, and it would certainly help the device stand out on retail store shelves. Some specifications and hardware are also speculated upon along with the video: in-screen ultrasonic TouchID, 6.6-inch cover display and 8.3-inch unfolded display (both Super Retina), incredible screen-to-body ratios of 93.6% (cover) and 96.6% (main), and a total of six cameras. Unfortunately, just as you start believing it could be real, a suggested price from US$1,999 is offered up; for a 2020 Apple iPhone foldable? Pure fiction.
