According to well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will launch its first foldable iPhone in 2023. This machine is expected to use a flexible OLED screen with a size of 8 inches.
In addition, Apple will choose Samsung Display as the exclusive display supplier for the new iPhone generation, and Samsung Foundry will be the exclusive DDI molding machine supplier.

The current. This design is supposed to be less expensive and is more color-customizable. Prosser also revealed that the foldable iPhone could be released in September 2022.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also forecasts that Apple can ship about 15-20 million foldable iPhones by 2023 and promises to create a new buzz for Apple.
