Apple to partner with LG for foldable iPhone

Apple teams up with LG Display for foldable iPhone

For those unaware, Samsung is now the sole supplier of OLED panels for the iPhone X. The report adds that Samsung can be expected to be supplier of displays for Apple next year too.

This report follows the rumours from July that suggested Apple's plan to apparently invest as much as $2.6 billion in support of LG's new OLED plant (a deal that hasn't been finalized as of yet). Samsung could be the first one to come with a foldable screen as soon as next year.

"We expect Apple's major promotion of facial recognition related applications will encourage the Android camp to also dedicate more resources to developing hardware and facial recognition applications", Kuo wrote. This could mean that Apple could postpone its usual iPhone launch that year.

Apple is reportedly working with LG Display, a display solutions arm of LG, on a foldable iPhone.

Apple and LG may be working together to develop the next-big-thing for Apple. It wouldn't be the first time we saw Apple take something someone else invented and ideal it to an extent where we actually think that it is an innovation.

Alongside the screen, a future foldable iPhone would also require a flexible circuit board and Apple may also assign the printing of such a board to LG, as per a report from Korean website The Investor.

The devices were originally meant to help people with disabilities who have arm mobility issues fire a semi-automatic long gun. This story has been corrected to show that the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence is the filer of the lawsuit.

This could be the sole reason for which Apple has made a decision to work with LG Display- a display solutions arm of LG on a new product.

In 2020, Apple might not even be the second company to launch a foldable smartphone. The move is also interesting because Samsung is the sole supplier of OLED panels for this year's iPhone X.

That's according to The Bell, a news outlet in Korea, as translated by The Investor.

Wednesday's report claims that LG created its own foldable OLED prototype two or three years ago.

Meanwhile, the Apple iPhone X, the company's flagship smartphone for 2017 is all set for public release on November 3, just a few weeks from now. "The first batch of the production will be shipped to LG Electronics and some Chinese handset makers, while the production for iPhone is expected to start from as early as 2019 when its new plant, called E6, is completed in Paju, Gyeonggi Province".
