Rumor: Apple working on foldable iPhone with separate but ‘seamless’ screens

As if a supposed leak of iPhone 12 molds today wasn’t enough, another big rumor about upcoming Apple devices has surfaced: The company apparently is apparently working on a foldable iPhone with two separate but ‘fairly continuos’ panels.

The rumor comes courtesy of leaker Jon Prosser, who claims the current prototype device has not a single bendable display but rather two panels on a hinge:

In other words, rather than being like the Galaxy Fold…

It’s more like the LG V60 Thinq…

Except, based on Prosser’s information, it appears Apple will try to make the screens looks “fairly continuous and seamless,” if not necessarily perfectly unblemished:

The phone reportedly has no notch, and has rounded steel edges; the latter seems odd given iPhone 12 leaks suggests the company is moving to flat sides akin to the iPad Pro.

While it’s possible that design is simply a quirk of the prototype, leaker @OnLeaks, who has a longer track record of accurate rumors, called into question at least some of Prosser’s information:

Still, Prosser stands by his sources:

It could just be that @OnLeaks doubts some of Prosser’s specifics. While a foldable iPhone seems like an obvious rumor at this point, it’s not like such a device would simply be joining the bandwagon; as MacRumors points out, rumors of a flexible iPhone date back to 2016 and a patent granted earlier in the year describes a device somewhat similar to what Prosser is positing.

There’s no indication when such a device might launch, if at all. As always, take this rumor with a grain of salt.
