The next major iPhone design change could be in 2020: foldable iPhone

Currently the fashion in the mobile sector is to enjoy a whole front starring the screen. No buttons, no frames; no cameras; The more space the screen occupies on the surface, the more striking. All these ideas were collected in a design: the iPhone X was born. And, of course, the other brands have done the same and all the news came together in the past Mobile World Congress.

However, it seems that Apple has in mind a new redesign with which to surprise all users: a foldable iPhone. And this great change could come in two years; that is, in the year 2020. This has been confirmed by an analyst at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in a note to his company's clients.

As Wamsi Mohan comments in the note: «Our checks suggest that Apple is working with suppliers on a foldable phone, which could potentially double as a tablet, for its launch in 2020». He also referred to what could be seen this fall with the new iPhone models. It is believed that design will not be a determining factor, although there will be different sizes, something decisive in the past.

On the other hand, we must also remember that Apple would not be the only one interested in such devices. For some time, Samsung is working to bring us the first folding smartphone in the market known under the name Samsung Galaxy X. Also, ZTE did the same and launched its personal vision of what a folding mobile should be like with the ZTE Axon M, although the truth is that its design did not convince critics much.

By last, Some comment that this new folding iPhone that would arrive in two years would be a perfect replacement for the iPad mini, a tablet model that has not been improved for a long time: the current model – iPad mini 4 – was presented in 2015. Since then, Cupertino's have focused on a model that starts from 9.7 inches of screen.
