Apple has reportedly ordered display samples from Samsung for its foldable iPhone
Well-known leaker Ice Universe claims that Apple has asked Samsung for foldable screen samples. If things go per plan, Apple could strike a one-year deal with the South Korean giant. This year, Samsung is expected to sell 70 million units of OLED panels to Apple for the upcoming iPhone 12. LG is expected to ship 18 million units.
Tipster Jon Prosser, whose track record is pretty decent but not pristine, had previously claimed it wouldn't be long before a bendable iPhone arrives. Apparently, the release time frame will depend on the launch of Corning's foldable Gorilla Glass.
Research firm Strategy Analytics believes that foldable smartphones will be the fastest-growing category of the premium handset market in the next decade. It also expects every major manufacturer, including Apple, to have a foldable portfolio by 2025.
