Apple reportedly partnering with LG for folding iPhone

Problem hanging over iPhone 8 ahead of X release

Even though the iPhone X isn't even here yet, new rumors are looking into the future of the brand - far into the future, as a matter of fact. Samsung is now the leader in providing OLED screens and it has been partnering with Apple for the provision of OLED screens.

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.

The Bell (via The Investor) reports that LG Display has been tasked by Apple to create a foldable screen for a new iPhone model.

Apple typically begins working on its next iPhone one year before launch so that it could share information on key features with its suppliers.

Apple is considering investing in the E6 plant in a push for LG to beef up OLED production.

We've been hearing for a long while about Samsung's forthcoming folding and flexible OLED (what we call FFOLED) smartphones, but it's remained unclear exactly when they will arrive.

Chevron Corporation (CVX) - Barclays Maintains Rating And Raises Price Target
With 28,300 avg volume, 27 days are for Vermillion Incorporated (NASDAQ:VRML)'s short sellers to cover VRML's short positions. A number of large investors have recently bought and sold shares of CVX. 92 funds opened positions while 651 raised stakes.

The Korea Herald says that Apple will be sourcing its flexible OLED panels and flexible circuit boards from LG for a flexible iPhone prototype. Apple's investment in LG Display hasn't been finalized yet, but it does seem like it might be soon. Every iPhone X sale is expected to give Samsung over $100 from Apple.

This is one of the reasons why Apple is clearly seeking out other potential OLED suppliers and now it definitely looks like it's LG. Foldable smartphone concepts have been around for some time now, but no manufacturer has released one just yet.

Citing unnamed industry sources, the report said, the panel production could start from 2020, which means Apple could delay its phone launch compared to the Samsung phone that is likely to debut next year.
