What do you guys think of this concept. And would you pay atleast $2000 for it knowing Apple price structure if they came up with something similar.
Samsung is not only the manufacturer of OLED displays. There are more like BOE, Japan Display or LG display. Also the question is not about the option that sees Apple launching something like this this year. It's going to take a while but if they do launch it would you'd get it.No
I know this is a hypothetical question, but where would apple get the display technology. I don't think Samsung is sharing this quite yet.
Like I said, where would apple get the displays they need. Samsung will want to keep this to themselves for a period of time, as its a game changing technology.Samsung is not only the manufacturer of OLED displays. There are more like BOE, Japan Display or LG display.
It's not a Samsung gimmick. Every manufacturer are working on it. So you either join them or you could lose a huge potential market like Asia. And based on Apple new patent files they are working on it. Whether you're interested or not.Not for me.
Apple does not have to follow Samsung's gimmicks.

Apple uses more suppliers than Samsung. It's the current OLED market that they went with Samsung. On their LCD panels they had different manufacturers. If Apple could avoid Samsung they would, but Samsung mobile OLED displays are currently the best. So they went for it. And Samsung display (which is different than Samsung Inc.) Doesn't mind selling panels to other companies.I did, and apple uses OLED, so that's samsung only and Samsung isn't going to license/sell the technology quite yet
They are.So Apple is working on this?
That's just speculation from you're behave. Fact is they've had a patent filled for. And why shouldn't they try to get a Foldable phone. What's wrong with it. If you don't like it get a normal iPhone but there are people who would like to have one. Why do you think Apple is disparate to get their market share back in China but they wouldn't make something like a Foldable phone? That doesn't make sense. In Asia they like to have their phones with as much screen possible. And this is going to be the new trend. Whether you like it or not. All their biggest competitors are working on it. It would be dumb if they wouldn't. It doesn't make sense.FYI, just because Apple has a patent, doesn’t mean that product will ever come to fruition. Apple has a patents for lots of things, products and concepts that have never debuted on the market before. A patent means a general idea for the concept of a product has not been Concluded or approved.

If you'd read my post it says I'm responding on your assumptions. And that's true when you'd start a sentence with "just because". Also if you really think a consumer Micro-led smartphone would get released before a foldable phone you really don't know much about the display market. Micro-led is years away for consumers on the tv-market let alone they could create a smartphone with micro-led pixels on at least 1080P resolution.No one implied that a foldable phone from Apple should be neglected, if you read my first post in the thread, I already acknowledged a foldable iPhone has its appeal. So I’m not sure why you’re refuting anything about Apple not trying to experiment with a foldable phone.
Regardless, what do we know so far? A $2000 device is going to be a very niche demographic that will be unobtainable by most for that price point. Either way, Apple doesn’t have the necessary suppliers even aligned for something like this yet, let alone micro LED will likely debut first before A foldable iPhone will.
No one can explain to me, outside of being two devices in one, what a foldable phone does better than a phone or a tablet.
It's a bad tablet and a worse smartphone.
