Who pointed to this possibility was even the current queen of the folding world, the Samsung! This at a recent meeting with suppliers of components and materials for the production and development of electronic devices. Why this ‘warning’? It’s simple! When Apple enters this market, the demand for folding screens will explode, because behind Apple, all the manufacturers will go and a few more.
However, Samsung also claimed that the North American giant Apple did not start its folding bet by the iPhone. Instead, the first product will be a foldable iPad, or perhaps a special version of the MacBook Pro.
Apple with foldables in 2024!? It won’t be with the iPhone
Therefore, Samsung has started to warn its suppliers that despite the economic outlook, it may be a good idea to prepare for an increase in orders.
It’s just that with the possibility of a period of stagnation ahead of us, in the world of technology, the result of a significant drop in demand. It is very likely that Apple will gain some desire to bet on something out of the box, which normally, if it goes well, quickly becomes a market trend. Proof of this was the removal of the Audio Jack, the implementation of the ‘notch’ and of course, betting on the USB-C standard in the world of laptops, in 2015 and 2016.
However, according to Samsung itself, Apple will not start hostilities with a foldable iPhone, instead, the North American giant will begin to ‘test’ the market in 2024, with products equipped with large screens, such as is the case of the iPad or the MacBook. If it goes well, then a folding iPhone appears, and of course, if it goes well, it won’t just be the iPhone that appears.
However, in addition to these predictions, Samsung has also come up with the $2500 price tag for this first foldable Apple product. A higher price than the Galaxy Z Fold4, but that seems to make sense, since we are not talking about a smartphone, but a different, more powerful, and more specialized product.
