  • Apple files for patent for foldable iPhone display

Apple seems to have its own plans for foldable phones.

The company announced earlier this year that the smartphone codenamed Galaxy X would be unveiled next year.

With a reported launch date still a few years out, a microLED display could be a reality for the foldable iPhone.

'Panel production could start from 2020, ' it claims. One surfaced a year ago covering a bendable smartphone using advanced carbon nanotube structures, which once again today is listed as one of the materials used as an anti-corrosion additive to prevent corrosion of any sensitive structures in the foldable display. LG Display has reportedly created a "task force" to develop the foldable organic light-emitting diode, or OLED screen, while LG Innotek has a team dedicated to the development of a "rigid flexible printed circuit board".

Apple naturally keeps tight-lipped about all of its products so we are not likely to hear anything official about the next iPhone SE until at least Spring 2018.

That was the sentiment felt on Twitter Friday as a video of the former first daughter appearing to smoke circulated the Internet. With all the attention, people have noticed one amusing thing: Rory now follows Donald Trump on Twitter, but not Barack Obama.

The Cupertino company has filed a patent with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) that details how the Galaxy X rival would work. Considering that this is a patent application, the timing of such a product to market is unknown at this time.

Beneath the chassis, Apple is likely to put either its A10 chip found in the iPhone 7, thereby using up any surplus slices of silicon and keeping the handset's price down. According to the patent document, the foldable iPhone could be "opened and closed like a book".

According to the patent filed on September 22, 2016, and published on November 23, 2017, Apple is making an electronic device with a flexible display that can be folded.

The device, or its patent, also mentions a MicroOLED screen, the next generation of screen technology.

At that size, the iPhone SE 2 will probably sport a 1920 x 1080 resolution Retina display, which KGI Securities analyst and all-round Apple guru Ming-chi Kuo predicts will be be of LCD-TFT construction rather than feature a more expensive OLED screen. A schematic accompanying the patent document shows that the folding iPhone would sport an all-screen design. The support layer may be formed from shape memory alloy or amorphous metal and may have openings to facilitate bending of the display along the bend axis.
