Foldable iPhone with clamshell design and lots of shade choices?

We’ve received tons of rumors about Apple’s foldable iPhone project. The latest rumor is that Apple may have already decided on the basic design of its new device. Jon Prosser has published several reports about this new foldable device on his YouTube channel Front Page Tech, in which he now provides us with some new updates for the upcoming smartphone.

According to Jon Prosser and his sources, Apple may already have decided to embark on the path of a future iPhone with a clamshell design. Earlier reports claimed Apple was working on two foldable iPhones. The first device is believed to have a design similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold, while the second is more similar to the Galaxy Z Flip or the Moto RAZR. Prosser’s sources aren’t sure why Apple went with a clamshell design or why it’s now getting more attention over the other form factor. Perhaps Apple’s durability tests have favored the hinge in this variant over the other model, or perhaps Apple’s recent partnership with Samsung, which will make the foldable display panels for these devices.

The second leak is even more interesting as the new foldable iPhone is also expected to come with more color options. Why is that interesting you ask? Well, all you have to do is check out Apple’s current iPhone 12 and every other line of iPhone. You will see that the base iPhone models have multiple color options, while the high-end variants usually have fewer color options to choose from. In other words, this could mean that Apple would like to appeal to a wider audience with these devices when it finally manages to get it done. Prosser also believes that the new foldable iPhone won’t be out next year, as some have suggested.
