The start of the year announced a plethora of folding models, though a recent product is not yet on store shelves after auditors found that the Samsung Galaxy Fold was suffering from screen durability issues and the company was starting up indefinitely delayed.
A report from IHS Markit on Economic Daily News states that Apple is developing its own leaflet. No phone, but a foldable iPad.
It's not clear whether the foldable iPad would be a flexible single-frame experience, like the prototypes of Samsung and Huawei, or whether it would be closer to a laptop form factor with two screens with an indicator on each part of the case, probably instead of a physical keyboard.
The product would appear to have MacBook-size screens, which is not too large given that it's not too big. The iPad Pro is already available in a 12.9-inch size. However, it is easy to imagine how convincing an iPad mini product could be that unfolds to a 13- or 15-inch screen.
The collapsible iPad would also support 5G mobile devices for fast mobile Internet surfing analyst.
Of course this report is anything but concrete. Although it comes from a supply chain analyst, there does not seem to be any evidence to suggest that Apple is boosting component production.
A foldable 5G Apple product still sounds like a dream. and realistically years could be away. Apple's efforts to secure a solid 5G timeline for the iPhone line are well documented until then, and we expect a 5G iPhone by the end of 2020. It is likely that a mythical 5G iPad will not be available until 2021 beyond.
Earlier this year, there were some rumors that Apple might ship 5G on the iPad in front of the iPhone, possibly with new iPad hardware in the spring of 2020.
IHS Markit previously announced that the upcoming 16-inch MacBook Pro would hit the market in the fall with a resolution of 3072 × 1920. At this stage, it is much more likely that this prediction will be fulfilled.
