A YouTube channel called Strange Parts has made a very interesting video showing how a foldable iPhone would look like using a flexible AMOLED screen. He has connected his iPhone to a flexible screen. Of course, a future concept would have a different design but this gives us a realistic vision of what a foldable iPhone could look like.
What a foldable iPhone would look like?
In the video, the YouTuber explains part of the process he went through to achieve this. He uses AirPlay with a Raspberry Pi, this allows him to extract the video signal from the phone and transfer it to the flexible screen through several cables.
This YouTuber is using a flexible AMOLED screen for this project
One of the most striking things, apart from seeing an iPhone that looks practically like a sheet of paper, is the matte color of the screen. An AMOLED screen is used for this project for obvious reasons. Using a screen made of glass wouldn’t give us the chance to imitate a foldable screen.
The chosen screen lacks a touch surface, so for now it is not possible to interact with the foldable iPhone directly, instead, it simply replicates what appears on the main iPhone screen. However, the project brings us one step closer to a hypothetical foldable iPhone.
Just yesterday Ming-Chi Kuo claimed that we would see a foldable iPhone within a couple of years. The truth is that there are several variants of foldable phones on the market. We don’t know which path Apple is going to choose.
