Earlier this year in March, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed Apple is working on a foldable iPhone to launch in 2023. Now, Kuo reveals some more information regarding the device. Moreover, the company will likely launch a foldable in 2023. In addition, he believes the foldable will reach 15 million to 20 million units in 2023. The new model will likely have an 8-inch foldable OLED display, according to Kuo.
Furthermore, the foldable iPhone can open up to a tablet with a screen slightly larger than the 7.9-inch display on an iPad mini. It will be now a “must-have” for major smartphone brands, Kuo in a note to clients.
Foldable iPhone Might Have An 8-inch Samsung Display
Earlier, the analyst Kuo predicted the foldable device display will have a display size between 7.5 and 8 inches. However, he now claims that the first foldable will have an 8-inch display. He also claims that Apple will source the displays for the foldable exclusively from Samsung. We know that the latter has vast experience in manufacturing foldable displays. Especially considering its own lineup of Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip.
Furthermore, we can expect Apple will likely be the industry leader in foldable iPhones. Apple offers an excellent ecosystem of software for tablets. The iPadOS for iPads is much more intuitive compared to the Android OS on tablets. Additionally, a vast number of apps on iOS are optimized for iPad. However, if Apple launches a foldable iPhone that can also act as a tablet it might offer a class-leading tablet experience.
At present, the product position of foldable smartphones is mainly to integrate the smartphone and tablet. But we believe that the foldable smartphone is only one of the applications of the foldable design. We predict that foldable devices will blur the product segmentations between smartphones, tablets, and laptops in the future. With its cross-product ecosystems and hardware design advantages, Apple will be the biggest winner in the new foldable device trend.Kuo
