Apple has begun developing a 20-inch foldable display, possibly for the future MacBook Pro
Citing industry sources, electricity Reports indicate that Apple has already begun the process of developing a 20-inch foldable display. To be precise, the display will be a 20.5-inch OLED panel manufactured by an unidentified South Korean supplier. When folded, the screen will drop to a 15.3-inch screen that’s larger than the iPad Pro’s. However, it will be smaller compared to the new 16-inch MacBook Pro.
With the screen size being 20 inches when unfolded, the project product is likely in a form close to a MacBook (laptop). Assuming a 20-inch product is 20.25 inches long, it will be 15.3 inches when folded. The currently available Apple MacBook Series screen sizes are from the mid to late 10 inches, and the iPad (tablet) series screen sizes range from less than 10 inches to the early 10 inches.
The report also states that Apple plans to commercially launch the device with a 20-inch foldable screen in 2026 or 2027. However, the company will make sure that the iPad and Mac switch to an OLED screen before its foldable device. At this point, only the high-end Apple Watch and iPhone models feature OLED panels while the rest of the products come with LCD screens.
Note that this isn’t the first time we’ve heard details on a 20-inch foldable display from Apple. Going forward, be sure to take the news with a grain of salt because the final word rests with the company.
