I definitely think foldable devices will be the next major change in smartphone design. It might take another 10 years until we really see it pop off. I can imagine a bit smaller smartphones that then fold into iPad mini size and then iPad mini sized devices folding into giant tablets.Hah, I think I remember seeing that photo in 2010. It's a giant original iPad. I still have my regular sized one in great condition with box.
I could see them one day selling a 15" iPad Pro if they can eliminate the bezel entirely, as well as significantly reduce the weight and thickness to where it's not cumbersome to hold during normal use for potentially hours at a time. They could also design one which unfolds into a larger one. An iPad Mini would be ideal for this because it could unfold into 15.8" diagonal if they can get it to do two folds. Imagine four iPad Mini's worth of screen real estate in your hands! The 12.9" iPad Pro is already nearly 3 iPad Mini displays and it is insanely great.
