First details about the foldable iPhone

The Cupertino giant is said to use a Ceramic Sheild glass and will be chemically treated to improve tolerance when folded or unfolded. The phone is said to sport a display size between 7.3-inch and 7.6-inch and may have an OLED panel. It is said that Apple’s foldable iPhone will be affordable compared to other similar offerings in the segment from competing brands. But since the phone is expected to launch in 2023, the components required for foldable phones should come down by then. There’s always a possibility of the launch being pushed further if it comes across any hardware or production issues.

Separately, Apple is also said to be working on ‘Project Titan’ which is an autonomous electric vehicle that is referred to as the Apple Car. The company is said to have been in talks with various automakers, including Kia, Nissan, and Hyundai, but is yet to find a perfect partner that suits its requirements. We hope to learn more details about the foldable phone and electric car going forward.
