The tech giant’s WWDC 2024 event, being currently held in California, focused primarily on software updates and new features for its existing devices. However, amidst the excitement, rumors began circulating about Apple’s plans for its first foldable iPhone. According to reports, the device will be similar to Huawei Mate Xs 2, featuring an outward folding design.

The news comes from industry analyst Jeff Pu, who suggests Apple’s foray into foldables might borrow inspiration from the Huawei Mate Xs 2. This means we could be looking at a foldable iPhone with a rather unique design compared to the current market leaders.

What Would A Fold Like The Mate Xs 2 Look Like?

For those who may not be familiar, the Huawei Mate Xs 2 boasts a single display that envelops the device’s front and back when folded and unfolds into a seamless, flat display. This innovative design allows users to enjoy a larger screen area without the bulk of a traditional foldable device. Analyst Jeff Pu suggests that Apple’s foldable iPhone will adopt a similar design, which could revolutionize the way we interact with our smartphones.

In recent years, Apple has been exploring new technologies and materials to create a foldable device that meets its high standards. The company has filed several patents related to foldable displays, including one for a device with a flexible OLED screen.
