The fold-screen iPhone is expected to be released in 2022, and the iPad Mini line is likely to be discontinued by then.
The exposure information for the fold-screen iPhone has been around for a while, with renderings suggesting that the phone might use an in-folding solution similar to Samsung Z Fold2, but also pointing to a design similar to the Samsung Z Filp and the MOTOROLA Razr. And according to the latest Revelations, Apple is testing a folding screen provided by Samsung.
The fold-down iPhone is positioned somewhere between the iPhone and the iPad Mini, and because the screen is spread out to a tablet-size size, it will run the iPadOS rather than iOS. In addition, Apple is likely to end production of the iPad Mini after the release of the folding device.
The folding screen iPhone will come with a combination of 8GB and 256GB of ram, and is expected to sell for $1,499, or 9,915 yuan. According to Phone Arena, in addition to apple, Google is also working on a foldable Pixel Phone, and with huawei, Samsung, MOTOROLA and other brands on the market, there will be more and more phones with foldable screens in the future.
