There have been several rumors in the past suggesting that Apple could be working on a foldable iPhone. It could be a while before we actually see it happen and based on how little we know about it now, it is unclear what kind of form factor it could adopt. Could it be a tablet-phone hybrid, or could it be like the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3?
While we don’t know the answer to that question, designer Antonia De Rosa has decided to throw together several concept renders of what he thinks a foldable iPhone could look like. He has since dubbed his concept the iPhone Air and keep in mind that this is only a concept and not a leak, so it’s more like De Rosa’s imaging of the phone.
Based on these renders, it seems that De Rosa has opted for a flip phone concept similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip series, and we have to say that it looks pretty good. For the most part, it looks like the iPhone with a hinge in the middle that supports the device’s foldability. His concept does include some slight changes to the design, namely the notch and also the rear-facing cameras.
The back of the phone instead of just housing the cameras will also have a screen built into it where it can display information like the date and time and also notifications. It’s actually a pretty cool design and doesn’t seem too crazy, which means that it could in theory be something that Apple adopts in the future.
In the meantime, the most recent reports we’ve heard suggest that Apple has tested out various prototypes, but the company is said to be skeptical about it and could be choosing to sit and wait it out to see where the tech is headed.
