Apple has reportedly started working on a new type of display for the foldable iPhone or iPad. Let us tell you, it will be similar to Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3. According to the news of The Elec, work has started on the OLED panel, which does not require a polarizing layer. The same polarizer-less display technology is used by Samsung in its Galaxy Z Fold 3 and its Eco-OLED display. Let’s know about it…

Polarizing the screen only improves the visibility of the screen. Instead of using a polarizer film, Samsung Display printed a color filter on thin film encapsulation abbreviated as CF on TFE and added a black pixel defining layer. This allowed the foldable panel to provide clear colors through color filters.
Screen can be up to 8-inches
Recently, a popular analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that the foldable iPhone could be real in the next few years. According to a report by Macrumors quoting Kuo, the screen size of the foldable iPhone will be between 7.5 and 8-inches. Previous rumors suggested that the upcoming foldable iPhone could measure close to the size of the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
iPhone will look like an iPad Mini when folded
Kuo further explains that the screen of the upcoming foldable iPhone will be the size of the iPad Mini when folded. This clearly indicates that Apple is clearly adopting Samsung’s Galaxy Fold approach. A report by Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) analyst Ross Young had earlier suggested that Apple’s foldable iPhone is delayed until 2025. The reason for this is that the company is looking for an all-screen foldable MacBook.
The company is now focusing on the MacBook and is reportedly exploring the possibility of introducing an all-screen foldable notebook. The company is currently in talks with suppliers for a foldable screen of around 20 inches. The company is set to launch several new products this year, including the Apple iPhone 14 series, M2 chipset, MacBook powered by M2 chipset, 27-inch iMac Pro with M1 Pro or M1 Max processor and a new Mac Mini.
