However, recent news from many sources shows that Apple is developing a folding screen mobile phone internally,
and has two different types of folding solutions, using up and down folding and left and right folding respectively, corresponding to different usage scenarios.
Recently, a well-known foreign website released a set of renderings of the “iPhone Flip” folding screen mobile phone,
showing in detail the industrial design of this iPhone mobile phone with the up-and-down folding scheme.

According to the picture,The iPhone Flip uses a design that is very similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.
The screen is folded up and down through a hinge-like structure, which can close the screen when not in use, resulting in a smaller volume and easy carrying.
This is also the most popular folding screen solution on the market.
It is worth mentioning that,After unfolding, the iPhone Flip is closer to a conventional mobile phone as a whole, basically continuing the design language of the iPhone 12 series, and Apple also designed a unique hidden hinge.The hinge can be almost perfectly hidden inside the fuselage,Not only makes the appearance of the whole machine more coordinated, but also enhances durability.

In addition,Apple is also equipped with a small secondary screen that corresponds exactly to the three-camera module on the back,
which can be used to easily read notification messages, etc.Avoid frequent folding of the screen by the user, which enhances the life of the screen to a certain extent.
But it is a pity that the bangs design is still retained on the iPhone Flip,
which means that the phone will still use Face ID to unlock, and a complete display cannot be obtained, which is a little regrettable.
It is reported that Apple may launch its first folding screen iPhone in 2023, so stay tuned.
