Apple files for patent on flexible iPhone display
Interestingly, a foldable iPhone might not see the light of day until 2021. And that would come after Apple will reportedly unveil its AR headset in 2020, a device that is supposed to be even bigger than the iPhone ever was.
The title of Apple's patent is Electronic Devices with Flexible Displays. And speaking of flexible displays, the Samsung Galaxy X is supposed to grace us with a limited release next year of its foldable display. Despite all of these trials and screens with unfinished business, there is still a long way to go before consumers are downright accepting of a smartphone screen that opens to become a tablet and closes to become a phone.
