Apple to partner with LG for foldable iPhone

A New Rumor Surfaces in South Korea claiming that Apple and LG are Collaborating on a future Foldable iPhone

Apple teams up with LG Display for foldable iPhone

Today we're learning that "Apple has reportedly started working on a foldable iPhone with LG Display, not Samsung Display - the sole OLED supplier - possibly due to concerns over tech leaks to its archrival Samsung Electronics".

However, LG's OLED production capabilities aren't now a match for Samsung's, so that could be part of the reason that we might not see a foldable iPhone until 2020.

According to The Bell on October 11, LG Display recently created a task force to develop a foldable OLED screen for the new iPhone model, while its parts-making sister firm LG Innotek has also setup a team dedicated to developing the rigid flexible printed circuit board, more widely called RFPCB. So that means Samsung is charging as high as it wants to produce those screens, and Apple has no choice but to pay up. There are chances, however, that Apple could launch these new products in the first half of 2018. The report claims Apple isn't planning to put a bending handset into production until 2020.

To the consumer, Apple and Samsung may be like two titans, embroiled in an eternal battle for their hard-earned cash but, behind the scenes, the two are not only partners but also heavily dependent on one another. This design change is actually what forced Apple to develop this new facial recognition software since it didn't have any extra place where to equip a fingerprint scanner.

Jones said a phone conversation with Trump after the display in Arizona included Trump telling him there was a rule on the books. It's so important if that's what the country is looking at to look at [the protest] differently'.


The Korea Herald reported on this week that Apple has teamed up with LG to work on a foldable iPhone display.

It could also be because Apple is cautious about what they share with Samsung, according to Korean news site The Investor. The rumoured Galaxy X featuring foldable display is said to launch next year.

As expected, Apple is not going to let Samsung win the smartphone race.

According to Mr Kuo, the reasoning behind Apple to add the TrueDepth camera system to the iPad Pro lineup would be to offer the users an experience that would be consistent with the iPhone X. On the other hand, Samsung is already ahead in the foldable phone race.
