This stunning iPhone Fold concept may be close to the real thing

The Apple event in September was full of huge announcements, but not many surprises. Leaks spoil just about every major smartphone release these days, and aside from the Dynamic Island, the iPhone 14 lineup was thoroughly spoiled prior to its unveiling.

Despite the plethora of leaks, fans still hold out hope for bombshells every time Tim Cook takes the stage. Sadly, Apple didn’t unveil the long-rumored foldable iPhone at the event, but a concept artist recently decided to take matters into his own hands and design a shockingly believable foldable iPhone.

A day before the Apple event in September, concept and VFX artist Michal Dufka shared his vision for a foldable iPhone on Behance. The “iPhone iFold,” as he calls it, is inspired by the design of the Galaxy Z Flip and Moto Razr clamshell.

Like other clamshell foldable phones, Dufka’s foldable iPhone has a small cover screen and a larger display inside. It appears that Dufka copied and pasted the Apple Watch’s display on the back of his iPhone concept, in addition to the rear cameras. Strangely enough, it does work. Apple has already proven that it can squeeze a lot of relevant information onto a screen of that size. If it ain’t broke, why fix it?

When opened, the iPhone looks almost identical to an iPhone 14 from the front. Dufka took the liberty of removing the notch – original or pill-shaped – and replacing it with a single hole punch for the selfie camera. By the time Apple finally launches the foldable iPhone, Dynamic Island may have fallen out of favor.

Is Apple making a foldable iPhone?

All in all, this is one of the most realistic folding iPhone concepts we’ve seen yet. We know from patent applications that Apple has been testing related technology for years. Whether one of those patents actually results in a commercial product.

Meanwhile, especially the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max sell well.
