Apple may launch foldable iPhone by 2023, says analyst

It appears 2023 could be the year where we could see a foldable iPhone come to light.
According to a report by MacRumors, analysts Ming-Chi Kuo has said that Apple is working on a foldable iPhone offering an 8-inch display. The resolution of the screen is said to be QHD+ and it is expected to be an OLED display.
Not only that, Kuo also said that in its first year itself, Apple is expected to ship 15-20 million units of this first of a kind iPhone.
“Based on our latest industry survey, we forecast that Apple will likely launch a foldable ‌iPhone‌ with an 8-inch QHD+ flexible OLED display in 2023, with SDC as the exclusive display supplier and Samsung Foundry as the exclusive DDI foundry provider. Based on Apple’s requested capacity plan, we predict that the foldable ‌iPhone‌ shipments will reach 15-20 million units in 2023. We expect that the foldable ‌iPhone‌ will adopt TPK’s silver nanowire touch solution because of its several advantages over SDC’s Y-Octa technology,” said Kuo.
This is not the first time Kuo has speculated this timeline for a foldable phone from Apple. Back in Marc, Kuo had said that the foldable iPhone could launch in 2023 sporting a main display between 7.5 to 8-inches.
However, back then Kuo had also added that the product has “not yet officially kicked off”. This means that it is still in the research stage.
