Apple Reportedly Working With LG Display on a Foldable iPhone for 2020

Apple teams up with LG Display for foldable iPhone

A new report suggests Apple may be working with LG - and not Samsung, which is now the Cupertino giant's sole supplier of OLED displays - on the creation of a foldable OLED screen.

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. So that means Samsung is charging as high as it wants to produce those screens, and Apple has no choice but to pay up. The news comes after a patent was filed by Apple in February this year, describing a folding smartphone with a fabric cover. These included a tablet that folded into a smartphone and a clamshell-like handset.

As a result it remained undetected for more than a year, and is believed to continue elsewhere, Proofpoint said . This article has been updated to include a comment from PornHub .

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

Samsung is Apple's biggest challenger in smartphones, but Cupertino still had to go to Samsung Display for the OLED on the iPhone X. Choosing LG instead could be a way for Apple to distance itself from its rival, avoiding technology leakage and keeping money out of Samsung Group.

Samsung is now the sole manufacturer of the OLED displays, NAND flash and DRAM chip in quantities required by Apple for its iPhones. Now, it looks like Apple is also in plans to launch such a smartphone in the coming years. However, the report also says that the foldable display panel production for iPhones could start by early 2019.

Another firm, LG Innotek, is working on a rigid but flexible printed circuit board for the gadget. According to Korean-sourced report, se new screens will be collapsible. Apple is rumoured to be considering investing in this plant, but a deal hasn't been finalised. According to The Korea Herald, Apple is said to be considering making an investment in LG's E6 plant so that the company can increase its production of OLED panels. On the other hand, Samsung is already ahead in the foldable phone race.
