Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo told investors on Sunday that Apple is forecasted to launch a foldable iPhone by 2023, according to documents seen by Engadget and Mac Rumors.

According to the reports, Kuo told investors that based on an “industry study,” the phone would likely feature an 8-inch QHD+ flexible OLED display along with a silver nanowire touch solution supplied by Taiwan-based TPK. He added that he thinks the company would ship out 15-20 million units of the device in 2023.

Kuo predicts that foldable smartphones will become the “must-have” device for companies in the future, integrating the performance of a smartphone and tablet.

Apple has not commented on the reports.

Apple dropped several new products and released information on major updates to its existing devices at its Spring Loaded event last month. Among the biggest announcements were the release of its AirTags accessory, an all-new iMac desktop computer infused with its advanced M1 processing chip, an impressive new iPad Pro, the next generation of Apple TV 4K, and a new light purple color for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini.
