According to a Chinese news agency, Apple has sent foldable iPhone samples to its manufacturing partner Foxconn for testing. The new device is set to be released in September 2022.

Economic Daily News cited supply chain sources claimed that the tests include evaluation of Micro-LED or OLED display technologies. This kind of test is vital as the choice of the screen will determine the assembly methods.

Apple has reportedly asked Foxconn to evaluate the durability of the foldable iPhone with more than 100,000 times of opening and closing.

It’s worth pointing out that on laptops, the number of times a device needs to be tested ranges from 20,000 to 30,000.

The report mentioned nothing on the design of the device, but it did say Samsung would be providing the panel. This rumor corroborates another leak that claims Apple has ordered samples of foldable displays from the South Korean tech giant.

According to Jon Prosser, Apple is developing a model of foldable iPhone that has two screens connected by a hinge rather than a single display that can be bent like that of the Samsung Galaxy Fold.

He said the foldable iPhone would have rounded edges resembling iPhone 11 and a notch-less display but there was a small forehead to house Face ID.

Rumors regarding such a phone date back 4 years ago, to 2016. Apple itself has patented a number of foldable phone designs, including one with two separate screens that can come together with a hinge.

However, bear in mind that rumors are no confirmation of an upcoming foldable iPhone.
