Apple is not ready to make the jump to foldable designs for the time being, but luxury modification company Caviar from Russia might be able to inspire the Californian giant with its impressive iPhone Z concept. The Z-shaped folding pattern allows for quite a few interesting uses, including a laptop mode, a selfie mode, and a screen mode.

Russian company Caviar specializing in custom-made luxury iPhone modifications recently presented its iPhone Z foldable concept. Note that it is still unclear if this concept would ever see the light of day. Still, it is interesting to see how Caviar’s talented designers envision a truly premium foldable smartphone.

The impressive iPhone Z comes with two sections that fold in a Z shape and enable multiple uses. Fully opened, the screen of the iPhone Z concept has a 10.4-inch diagonal and a 3:2 aspect ratio, making it an ideal tablet with an outstanding 3,876 x 2,758 resolution. In its fully folded state, the device is a bit on the thick side, yet the golden materials and diamond studs that ornate the edges make up for this slight inconvenience. When used as a smartphone, the display shrinks to a 20:9 aspect ratio, yet the 1,292 x 2,758 resolution is still higher than any non-4K display on the market.

Users can also employ a selfie mode by folding only one segment in conjunction with the rear cam setup that includes three 15 MP sensors. Additionally, the device can act as a laptop, with one screen segment used as a keyboard, or it can turn into a standing screen. The screen comes with in-display Touch ID and punch-hole selfie cam + Face ID projector. No word on the battery capacity, but the included USB-C connector may allow for some sort of fast charging.

Caviar estimates that, if it ever gets manufactured, the iPhone Z would cost around US$3,262, which is surprisingly low considering that the device comes with gold materials and 90 diamond studs.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
