According to a document released today by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO), Apple has filed a patent for a foldable screen, meaning the foldable iPhone may not be far from us. The foldable screen patent Apple applied for three types of screens LCD, OLED and microLED.
According to the patent application, we can see the device can be opened and closed like a book. The device may have a flexible portion with a flexible display that allows the device to be folded.
Earlier it was reported that Apple is working on a revolutionary iPhone design that’s so secret it had to partner with LG instead of Samsung to develop its screen. Because Apple is understandably afraid that Samsung will steal the design. The report also said this mysterious iPhone will debut in 2020 at the earliest and will offer users a foldable OLED screen in a brand new design.
Meanwhile, Samsung has also long been rumored to be developing a radical folding phone – and it could soon see the light of day, it has been claimed.
A support page for the handset has been spotted online weeks after it was certified by Korean authorities.
It is believed the handset could be unveiled at the CES show in Las Vegas in January.
