Apple teams up with LG Display for foldable iPhone

APPLE IS WORKING on a foldable OLED phone with LG Display, the display-making arm of the LG Group, according to sources speaking to The Bell in Korea (English version via The Investor).

First we heard of Samsung's plans to produce a smartphone with a bending, foldable screen, and now it's Apple's turn for a lap of the rumour mill.

"Amid Samsung's near monopoly in mobile OLED production, Apple has been strengthening its partnership with LG Display, its long-time LCD partner", the report added. The news comes after a patent was filed by Apple in February this year, describing a folding smartphone with a fabric cover. LG, meanwhile, has reportedly completed its own foldable OLED panel prototype years ago, and is now working to increase durability and the yield rate of the same.

Piper Jaffray's latest survey on teen consumers indicates that enthusiasm for the tech giant's devices in that demographic has never been higher. Understandably, Samsung is the biggest arch rival of Apple and buying OLED displays from them means dropping cash right in enemy pockets.

That is if a new report from South Korea turns out to be accurate. It is so because LG has recently started manufacturing OLED panels at their E5 plant in Gumi, North Gyeongsang Province. Apple may have made this deal to change smartphone's understanding again. Lastly our cover graphic shows an Apple patent figure of a foldable iPhone from their granted patent for such a device issued in November 2016.

As everyone already knows, iPhone X and Galaxy Note 8 which are the world's most powerful and popular smartphones ship with bezel less displays. However, if Apple decides to put the latest TrueDepth camera and Face ID feature on iPad Pro, the sale for the device could go up considerably.

Sources say that panel production could start in 2020, meaning any sort of foldable iPhone could be launched the same year.
