Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst reputable for his accurate predictions, reveals a little more about Apple’s future hybrid foldable device. By the first half of 2026, he believes the company will be able to release not just one, but possibly two foldable devices.

According to a recent rumor, the foldable tablet-like device will debut in late 2025 or early 2026. Two form factors are currently in development – 20.25″ and 18.8″, which shrink to 14-15″ and 13-14″, respectively, when folded.

Based on supply chain findings, LG will be the sole supplier of these foldable panels, and they will likely be crease-free, driving up the cost. According to preliminary estimates, the panel alone is expected to cost $600-650, while the hinge is expected to cost $200-250. Apple will purchase hinges from Amphenol. The foldable’s will be powered by M5 series chips developed in-house.

The overall cost has also been vaguely estimated by Ming-Chi Kuo. According to initial estimates, the company’s first foldable will be priced similar to the Vision Pro, which starts at $3,499 (Rs.2,90,700/-). It is likely that shipments will be higher than those of the Vision Pro, somewhere around 1 million.
