Apple is one step closer to making its long-rumoured foldable iPhone a reality.
The Cupertino, California-based tech giant has reportedly asked manufacturer Foxconn to create two prototype shells to test out potential future iPhone designs.
The two designs will be very different, Tom’s Guide reports, with one featuring a large display that folds in half, while the other is two separate screens joined by a hinge.
It is unclear if Apple plans to put out a pair of foldable phones or if it is experimenting to find the best design.

The report comes on the heels of an Apple patent application published last week for an ultra-flexible phone with a display that can be folded both inward and outwards.
Apple recently released its newest family of iPhones, including its smallest iPhone in years, the 12 Mini.
