Primitive Folding iPhone Built From Motorola Razr and iPhone Parts

A Chinese YouTuber has gone to great lengths to construct a foldable iPhone out of existing parts, merging the internal components of an ‌iPhone‌ with the foldable chassis of a Motorola Razr. The resulting device is an ‌iPhone‌ that is able to be folded in half.

The video is in the Chinese language with subtitles, and walks through the process used for deconstructing both devices. All of the internal components of the ‌iPhone‌ X were removed and re-enginereed to fit inside of a foldable Motorola Razr chassis.

Called the "‌iPhone‌ V," the foldable ‌iPhone‌ is functional, running iOS, and the display clearly bends in half. Several ‌iPhone‌ models appear to have been torn down and converted into the foldable design, though the walkthrough focuses on the ‌iPhone‌ X.

Rumors suggest that Apple is working on foldable ‌iPhone‌ prototypes, but as of right now, there is no solid word on what an Apple foldable might look like or when it will launch.

That's nothing. I built a folding iPhone completely out of iPhone parts.

Honestly, the skill it takes to disassemble the iPhone in one form factor and re-assemble it in a mostly folding enclosure is pretty cool. And it still works! These folks are very determined and have an awful lot of time on their hands, obviously. Pretty neat skunk project. Hats off to them.

Look, if I wanted a Frankenstein monster of a phone I'd buy a Samsung.

I’d call this bendable, not foldable.

Apple is so not going to be happy about this.

I bet that it took a lot of courage to build that. But, this is giving me too much of Samsung vibes.
