Apple Teams Up With LG Display For Foldable iPhone

Apple Teams Up With LG Display For Foldable iPhone

The iPhone manufacturers partnered with their top competitor, as Samsung is the only company that can supply Apple with the organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screens needed for their brand new, bezel-less iPhone X.

Alongside the screen, a future foldable iPhone would also require a flexible circuit board and Apple may also assign the printing of such a board to LG, as per a report from Korean website The Investor. However, it's been suggested that Tim Cook and co do not want to develop too close a relationship with an arch rival.

And even with the December quarter iPhone unit cut in her forecast, her revenue forecast for the fourth quarter of this year is in-line with consensus, thanks to stronger than expected Apple Watch demand and our higher average selling price forecast.

Later, when the PTI chief did not submit any response, the ECP issued a second show-cause notice to him on August 24. The PTI is set to challenge the warrants in the Islamabad High Court.

Industry sources claim that production could begin from 2020.

Although this is all just rumors and should be taken with the appropriate amount of salt, it makes sense that Apple would use LG rather than Samsung, as that could help break Samsung's OLED monopoly.

It could also be because Apple is cautious about what they share with Samsung, according to Korean news site The Investor. Apple may have made this deal to change smartphone's understanding again. Now, it looks like Apple is also in plans to launch such a smartphone in the coming years. The company is now supplying its first batch of its foldable panels to few Chinese handset makers as well as to its parent company. In case you aren't aware, Kuo is widely regarded as a credible source for all things Apple.

Apple has also put an organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panel and the iPhone X will support HDR, TrueTone and 3D Touch display. Even then, this will only happen if LG Display can produce the screens reliably and in the massive scale Apple would require.

Samsung has said that it will release it's own "smartlet" - a phone which unfolds into a tablet - by next year.

Apple is said to be speeding up the production process of the folding screens by investing in the construction of a new LG Display manufacturing facility, called E6. On the other hand, Samsung is already ahead in the foldable phone race.
