Last year, foldable smartphones became a reality and it seems that they are here to stay. While Samsung recently launched its second-generation foldable smartphone, Huawei and Motorola are gearing to launch their next foldable phone.

However, other smartphone brands are working on their own foldable smartphones but are yet to make them official. Apple is also working on a similar device, as it has been revealed through a patent application filed by the company.

Now, YouTuber Jon Prosser, who has a good track record for Apple-related leaks so far, has confirmed that the company is indeed working on a foldable smartphone and it’s not just speculation. However, in the video, he added that the device may not be what everyone is expecting it to be.

He reveals that the phone is not a real foldable phone but has a “fabric hinge” with two separate displays. The hinge would keep debris out to make the device more durable than the current foldable smartphones, but the screen on the device won’t bend or fold.

However, he adds that it is designed in such a way that when opened, it has a single continuous display and doesn’t appear to have two separate panels, even though that is the case. The phone’s prototype model is based on iPhone 11

Do note that apart from the claims by Jon Pressor, there’s no information out there confirming this development. Also, there’s nothing known about the smartphone in terms of specs and features, nor even the possible timeframe for the foldable iPhone.
