Kuo further suggests that the screen of the upcoming foldable iPhone will be iPad Mini-sized when folded. This clearly hints that Apple is clearly taking Samsung’s Galaxy Fold approach. The tech giant could release a regular sized phone that unfolds into a tablet.

The US based tech giant is yet to reveal much details about the upcoming iPhone.
Currently, Apple is said to be working on the iPhone 13 series that could include the iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max. These iPhones could launch at fall, which is around September or October.
