It would neglect the polarizing filter on the foldable iPhone

This would increase Apple’s iFold uptime, but it could take even longer to start.


Apple is downright conservative when it comes to design, and while speciel’s mobiles are perfectly assembled these days, they’re outdated and confusing, and they haven’t gone for the foldable line for the time being. On the other hand, when apples enter a new product category, they typically arrive with a mature product, and foldable there is still room for improvement, be it the crease pattern or the durability of the hinge.

Apple is nonetheless continuing to develop the foldable iPhone, the Korean has heard Elec, and the manufacturer is working on a similar solution for the Z Fold3-hos. Conventional smartphones use a polarizing layer between the display and the protective glass to minimize the reflection and glare of incident (mostly scattered and broken) outside light so that the contents can be seen better. This filter, in turn, reduces the brightness of the panel.

Samsung’s Eco OLED technology omits this separate layer and solves the filtering on the screen itself, transmitting 33% more light and saving 25% on consumption. This is especially important because, in addition to the hinge, components, and efficient heat dissipation in thin bendable devices, there is very little room left for the battery, which is why Apple can work to omit the polarizing filter. However, it may take several more years for one iFold will be on the market and in the meantime the toughness of the screen protector and the bending mechanism may also progress.
