Ever since the Galaxy Fold hit the market, Apple fans have been divided about whether they would want a foldable iPhone. The Galaxy Fold, of course, had a regrettable launch with build-quality and resilience concerns putting a massive cloud over its launch. Since then, however, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 has launched, putting many of those concerns to bed while the technology also continues to improve. Apple's apparent 2023 timeframe also gives the technology time to further improve.

In his latest research note, acquired by Macrumors, Apple market analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that Apple is targeting 2023 for the launch of its first foldable. It will feature an 8-inch QHD+ flexible OLED panel sourced from Samsung Display, although it will adopt TPK’s silver nanowire touch solution instead of Samsung’s Y-Octa tech. Kuo also believes that a foldable iPhone is the type of device that could trigger another super upgrade cycle.

Apple had been rumored to be exploring two types of foldable designs, one similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and the other to the Galaxy Z Flip. The 8-inch size and resolution suggests that Apple will adopt a Galaxy Z Fold 2 design with the resulting device being able to convert from an iPhone to an iPad. Kuo cautions that Apple hasn’t commenced development of the device, however, if it does proceed, it has settled on the display technology it will use.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
