iPhone Fold – The folding iPhone is REAL? WHAT?

by birtanpublished on November 4, 2020

So this is awkward i um uh this video shouldn't exist in 20 minutes i was supposed to release a video that i shot yesterday i got up this morning watched the return of front page tech and now here i am in front of you wearing the same stuff that's in my next video that now won't come out for a couple of days thanks john appreciate that but listen this is really important stuff they're talking about a folding iphone now this has been talked about for a while but john kind of clarified more so i definitely

Want to talk about it and of course i will right after this what up players welcome back and for all you new people welcome my name is travis and i do tech videos every single week and have a blast doing them if that sounds like fun to you sit back relax and enjoy the video anything i talk about will be in the description below but for now let's just get into the video what a way to ruin my saturday morning as i literally just woke up 35 minutes ago and here i am making this video but i think this video is so

Important because apple is now pretty much confirmed to be making a folding iphone and this is interesting they're taking an approach that i guess shouldn't be terribly surprising and it will make their first gen version of this if it ever comes out i don't know kind of kind of outdated now i've talked about this before the next phone i'm getting from the android side of the fence is actually the samsung fold 2. i wanted to get the original samsung fold but the problem was there were so many issues at

Launch that it even got delayed and at that point i was a little gun shy plus obviously they didn't manufacture as many in that second run as they did the first run or at least they probably would have anyway and all the problems they came across really just just it made me worried to pay 2 000 for something that could break so easily and apple is known for a couple of things innovation isn't always one of them i mean they innovate on some aspects of a phone like the processor is usually really amazing and the camera

Quality is usually really great but the actual phone design itself other than maybe the materials there's not really anything that's kind of like revolutionary about their phones as a matter of fact they'll pick a design and stick with it for several years you've seen it from like the and the iphone 7 8 uh you've seen it from the iphone 10 to now like they all look basically the same but what's interesting about this is a completely different design and my guess is this folding iphone which we'll talk about here in a second

We may never see it if you're not familiar with what exactly is going on let me let john prosser explain exactly what the folding iphone actually is it is real but it's not that one and also not really foldable so anybody exclusive here for you folks um yes the foldable iphone is real the current prototype that apple is working on has like a fabric hinge and it's actually two separate display panels so not the display itself doesn't curve and bend and fold so we can't

Really call it a photo but you know our rules on foldables people this ain't it it has round stainless steel edges a lot like the current iphone 11 design and then on the front there's no notch so there's an outer display with a tiny forehead no notch and that's where face id is and if you use the google right you'll find patents for apples like fabric hinge it's supposed to be more durable and the last longer and helps with the debris not get in there and unlike

Other quote unquote foldable devices that are really just two displays on a hinge this doesn't look like they stuck two phones together when you actually unfold it and have it flat it looks like a continuous seamless display that's kind of cool thanks john not only have you explained all that and i don't know how to explain it you just saved me a whole bunch of time to make this video extra long because i want this to be a long video now i'm just joking

But please be a long video but here's the thing the way john explains that it's not actually a folding phone it's like a laptop where you have two portions of the phone hinged together and slap it together which both makes sense and doesn't make sense for apple number one it makes sense in that apple is not going to be the first company to come out with a folding anything of course they're already not but they're not even going to be the second company or the third company or anything like that

You'll notice that most of the technology that apple comes out with has existed on android for a long time and folding android phones have been out for a little bit but there's not that many of them so using something that's kind of hinged rather than having the folding glass makes more sense for apple it's a calculated risk something that they can do execute on and actually make it pretty nice i would imagine having said that by the time it comes out it's going to look a little dated just ask microsoft

I mean they're already trying to do that right now we'll see how their 1400 duo thing does i mean i'll be really interested to see if that thing sells well and if it even operates well so that's kind of the same idea except for i don't know what that the material that john was talking about as the hinge that's that sounds kind of fancy for me i'm also thinking will ios users like a new form factor like this or will they reject it that's a different question here's the

Thing apple fans are willing to try something new and even make sacrifices on existing capabilities for the greater good don't believe me remember the headphone jack yeah uh the headphone jack went away a long time ago and first on iphones and here's the thing they sold so many airpods right after that that it became one of the top selling earbuds in the world and iphone users weren't really complaining much after that as a matter

Of fact airpods set a new standard for not only the call quality you can get from earbuds but the entire industry exploded in options of earbuds before the airpods came out there were some truly wireless earbuds out there and the quality unless you paid a lot of money was pretty suspect right now there are a billion types just take a look at amazon and the quality on all of them or at least the vast majority of them is

Actually really good this is something that didn't exist before the airpods and it pushed the industry forward will this be more of the same if apple comes out with a folding phone or at least a phone that hinges shut will that then push forward the industry well we know for a fact that when iphones come out android manufacturers pay attention i'm just going to call this notch gate remember when all the android phones were coming out a year ago with notches for no reason other than they looked like iphones

And of course like i've said before here in america at least wireless charging wasn't something you could easily find in public until after the iphones started supporting it it's just one of those things that happens it becomes socially acceptable when apple supports something so if apple comes out with a folding phone you may see a whole bunch of manufacturers coming out with folding phones at all different price ranges now again

This does not mean the folding iphone is going to be any good i suspect that this version that's being talked about now won't even see the light of day at least i hope not the one that i want to see is like that fancy dancy uh one you see here with the and that looks cool i would like that i'm actually interested to see what apple can do with basically a folding laptop for a phone i mean that's what it is when it's a hinged in the middle

It would be really interesting if they waited and made their first phone a completely folding display much like the galaxy fold now i don't think that's going to happen i don't think they're going to do that anytime soon i think if you're really expecting a folding iphone you're going to be waiting a long time and if they do come out with this version of their folding phone um i mean i'd be a little surprised it just sounds like it's some type of concept now even john doesn't have a launch date

For this thing which means it's way far out and which means much like airpower it could be completely cancelled before it ever comes out but are you excited for this possibility let me know in the comments below i'll tell you right now i i would not hold my breath for this thing i don't think it's gonna happen but you know what i have some other videos for you right here about some rumors about the iphone 12 and then some other videos here by the way the video that was supposed to come out

Today we'll come out in a couple more days so i'll see you then peace and love
