'Will Apple and Google launch foldable tablets?'

【phoneauto News】On July 26th, phoneauto learned that according to supply chain sources, Apple intends to introduce foldable designs into its MacBook or iPad product lines, with the earliest announcement expected in 2026. In addition, Google also plans to expand its foldable product lineup and launch a foldable tablet.

iPad Pro

Related supply chain sources revealed that Apple has been working on the development of foldable iPhones for years, but the customer has not yet indicated the start of mass production, and the chances of launching in 2024 are very slim. In May, after Google released the Pixel Fold foldable screen phone, Apple became the only mainstream smart phone brand in the world without a foldable phone. Some analysts believe that this may put Apple in a marginalized position in this field, which could potentially generate billions of dollars in revenue in the future.

Although Apple has not yet released any devices with foldable screens, there are rumors that the company is considering all long-term options, including foldable iPhones, iPads, and Macs. However, whether Apple will actually launch these devices or just limit the plans to the research and development stage remains to be seen.

However, according to analysts Ben Wood from CCS Insight and Omdia, Apple’s first product to enter the foldable device market may be a tablet computer rather than a foldable iPhone. Wood predicts that a “super high-end iPad with a flexible display” will appear in 2024. It is reported that the foldable iPad will adopt a completely new design and be equipped with a lightweight and durable carbon fiber support frame. Similar to foldable phones from brands like Samsung and Google, the foldable iPad will have a hinge that can be opened and closed like a book, providing a larger display when unfolded compared to existing models.
