Concept: “iPhone Z” unfolds in three to become an iPad

Here in the MacMagazine, we like to highlight concepts and mockups grounded in reality and with a feeling of “good, Apple can really do something like that in the near future”. This one definitely no is one of them – and it is not less intriguing.

The Russian company Caviar recently posted its concept for a so-called «IPhone Z», which, as its name suggests, takes some inspiration from recent folding smartphones – like the Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X – to imagine a version Cupertinian (and, if I may, very crazy) of the same idea.

The “iPhone Z” would have not one, but two folds on its screen, which, unfolded, would have a total size of 10.2 inches and a 3: 2 ratio – almost the same as an iPad. Closed in three, the device would have a 6.6-inch front screen with a 20: 9 aspect ratio.

The idea would bring some benefits, such as a so-called “notebook mode” that would fold the screens to have an inclined portion, and another one called “TV mode”, in which two thirds of the screen would stand up for the user to watch movies or series. As for the extremely tacky golden finish with «diamonds» … well, I like it like an arm.

Other specifications include Face ID and Touch ID built into the screen, triple rear camera and USB-C. According to Caviar, a model like this would not come out “for less than 2,900 euros”, which – without taxes or fees – would give about R $ 13 thousand. What about?
