First Samsung, now Apple plans foldable smartphone with help from LG

Apple teams up with LG Display for foldable iPhone

Apple's iPhone X is believed to feature displays exclusively from Samsung, as rival OLED panels from the likes of LG weren't up to snuff.

In a note to investors, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said the Face ID will be featured in the iPad in an effort to bridge the gap between iPad and iPhone users.

That rivalry may, however, start to overshadow their partnership soon. A new report from the Investor claims that Apple has chosen LG to manufacture future foldable displays for them.

Citing The Bell, it reported Samsung is also working on a folding smartphone.

It will also make your device work much better and the Audible feature works on both Bluetooth headphones as well as on speakers. This direct sequel to the Kindle Oasis first introduced in 2016 with a 6-inch display is thus considerably bigger.

Samsung Display's been showing a foldable small OLED behind closed doors (the worst-kept secret in the industry) for years, and is set to launch a phone with the tech next year. Samsung happens to be the sole provider of OLED screens for the iPhone X and rumor has it that the company does not want to involve the Korean firm because the design of the next-gen smartphone might get leaked. Now rumours have surfaced claiming that Apple is working with Apple for a foldable iPhone. Given the fact that the South Korean company has already been working for years on this project, this reasoning seems to be a little faulty, to say the least.

The technology giant announced that consumers can pre-order the iPhone X on October 27 and the units will go on sale on November 3. Samsung is at the advantage here if this timeline shakes out since its bendable device will be in the market by 2018.

Critics have pointed out plateauing iPhone sales in recent quarters, but Apple Inc. There still are years to go before we will see the foldable iPhone out in the wild.

Meanwhile, Samsung is also believed to be readying its own foldable display handset for launch in 2018. Apple's share of teen smartphone ownership has increased for five consecutive surveys, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson said in a report.
