For a folding screen mobile phone, the hinge is one of the most critical components, and the hinge of this folding iPhone is in its life cycle.
More than 1 million commercial tests have been conducted internally.
The foldable screen may be provided by Samsung, and Nippon Nippon will manufacture the hinge for the first foldable iPhone, and Foxconn will be responsible for the assembly.
And before that, Apple also applied for a new patent called self-healing screen, the purpose is to solve the biggest technical difficulty of folding screen mobile phones today-the screen crease problem.
It is reported that when a dent appears on the screen, the material of the self-healing layer can be quickly filled to solve the problem of apple crease.
