WASHINGTON - Apple is reportedly working on a foldable iPhone to be released by 2020, as reported by CNBC.
According to Wall Street firm Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Apple is working with Asian partners to make a whole new iPhone design.
Senior analyst Wamsi Mohan wrote a note to clients today after meeting several Apple suppliers in Asia.
“We expect the iPhones this fall to be largely unchanged for the OLED versions although size changes have proved to be a catalyst in the past,” Mohan wrote, “Our checks also suggest that Apple is working with suppliers on a foldable phone (that potentially could double up as a tablet) for launch in 2020", the note said.
A Korean media outlet reported last October that Apple was teaming up with LG, but that report only cited anonymous industry sources.
