Apple has been planning an iPhone foldable for a long time and it seems the company might follow the Huawei Mate Xs 2 design strategy for its first-ever folding device. That says a new report from one of the top-most international research observers.

Jeff Pu an analyst at Haitong International firm reports that the first Apple iPhone foldable may launch in late 2026. He adds that the device could bring a 7.9-inch display panel as well as a “wrap-around foldable” design format (outward folding).

Detailing the appearance, Jeff mentioned that the Apple iPhone foldable may look similar to the Huawei Mate Xs 2 when unfolded. Note that the outer folding form factor helps the device from hinge or crease damage and makes it more durable.

Other than the folding device, the analyst said that a 20.3-inch foldable MacBook is also on the way and might initiate mass production by the end of 2025.

Jeff didn’t reveal much about the upcoming iPhone fold. But it looks like the American tech giant is trying to copy Huawei while making its first-ever foldable.

Huawei Fold-Out Screen Devices:

The Chinese phone maker introduced the fold-out screen device as Mate X (Mate Xs for global) in November 2019. The OEM adopted this design for Mate Xs 2 and Mate X2. Hereafter, the firm ditched this form and opted for a dual-screen outlook.

Huawei Mate X5, for example, launched with a dual-screen design with an external screen and internal folding mechanism. Still, Mate Xs 2 count as one of the most light, thin, and durable outwards foldable smartphones in the market.

Mate Xs 2:

Huawei Mate Xs 2 features a 6.5-inch main display and expands to 7.8-inch after unfolding. The display has a 2480 x 2200 pixels resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate.

It further supports a 240Hz touch sampling rate, 1.07 billion colors, and is capable of 45% increased anti-reflection. It sports a tri-cam setup on the rear side with a 50MP main shooter, an 8MP 3x zoom telephoto lens, and a 13MP ultra-wide snapper.

The device packs a 4880mAh battery with a 66W superfast charging facility and supports multiple features like multi-window, quick swipe gestures, and intuitive UI. It would be worth seeing what else Apple might copy from Huawei in future.
