A recent leak revealed that Apple is developing a foldable iPhone. However, this particular iPhone does not use a bendable screen like Samsung Galaxy Fold, but uses two separate screens “seamless”.
In other words, Apple’s foldable iPhone, instead of Samsung’s Galaxy Fold, is more like LG’s V60 Thinq or Microsoft’s Surface Neo. Except that Apple will try to design these two separate displays to be seamless, unlike the feeling that the two monitors are different.

Samsung’s Galaxy Fold uses a single screen, with folds in the middle and foldable. This design helps users have the best experience, when images are constantly displayed on a screen. However, it also has the disadvantage of durability, because it is impossible to use conventional protective tempered glass.

Meanwhile, the LG V60 Thinq’s design is quite rough, as it simply attaches an extra screen like an accessory. And the Surface Neo’s design seems most feasible for Apple, although it is also two separate screens but designed quite thin and synchronized on a single device. The downside is that we easily see the hinge in the middle of the two screens, which makes the user experience affected, especially when watching videos or playing games.
However, according to this source, this is Apple’s first prototype. Therefore, it is possible that the folding iPhone will have a completely different design if it is launched, or it may not be released. Folding screen smartphones have appeared quite a lot, but still not a really popular technology product.
