iPhone Flip: Everything about Apple's foldable phone plans

The Apple's iPhone Flip could be the company's first foldable phone.

The launch date of the iPhone Flip is open to speculation, but the latest rumors are pointing toward a 2023 or 2024 launch.

According to some reports, the screen size of the first iPhone Flip could be 8-inch, that would be larger than the Galaxy Z Fold 3.

A different report claims Apple could be working with LG on a 7.5-inch OLED foldable display panel, where as report from Kuo says Apple is testing 9-inch display for foldables.

According to Jon Prosser, Apple has tested two different kinds of iPhone Flip: a fold-out hybrid tablet, similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold lineup, and a clamshell flip phone design akin to the Galaxy Z Flip range

Those sources also claim Apple will be going ahead with the clamshell design, though it is still early in the development process and there's a chance things could change.

Patent filings also reveal some of the things Apple may be considering for its foldable, including any future devices that might skip the clamshell design in favor of something else.

Apple has filed a continuation patent that spells out ways of making the iPhone Flip more durable with the help of a crack-resistant display.

If the iPhone Flip doesn't arrive until 2023, Apple will certainly be giving its rivals a head start on the foldable phone front.

What would be the debut price of the iPhone Flip is the biggest question and mystery, that only time can answer.
