With a foldable Apple iPhone at least a couple of years away, someone made it their year-long DIY project to create one. It was dubbed the iPhone V.

How did iPhone V come to life?

Tech Aesthetics was the team behind this amazing DIY project. iPhone V is an amalgamation of the Apple iPhone X's internals and the chassis of the Motorola Razr 2019. It took the team 1 year of research, reverse engineering, trials, and errors before arriving at the iPhone V.

What they did was they took an iPhone X screen, removed the glass cover and touch layers, and left the flexible OLED. This process was done through careful and precise movement and machining. Through the testing phase, the team broke 37 iPhone X screens before arriving at a usable one.

The team also used two Motorola Razer 2019s. These served as the chassis to house the iPhone X internals. They build a customer motherboard out of 3D-printed components. There are a few major caveats though. First, it only has a tiny 1,000mAh battery and no wireless charging support.

Lastly, Tech Aesthetics also edited iOS to suit the foldable screens. They installed features such as split-screen app instances and separate functional screen sides through jailbroken mods and apps.

Yes, it is not an official foldable one. Heck, it's even a Frankenstein monster made out of two smartphones. But, this is still an amazing feat in both engineering and DIY fields.
