Jony Ive says Apple's iPhone X design is only the beginning

Apple is investigating reports of its new iPhone bursting open, days after the flagship device went on sale. The Face ID, on the other hand, allows users to make payments using the Apple Pay. Even then, this will only happen if LG Display can produce the screens reliably and in the massive scale Apple would require.
The report further noted that "Apple usually starts a new phone project a year before launch, sharing key features, including the panel, with suppliers". The feature that stood out the most when Apple introduced iPhone X was its TrueDepth camera and Face ID 3D laser face-scanning technology.
The LCD-screen iPhone 8 series phones, which have display sizes of 4.7 and 5.5 inches, went on sale September 22. The Bell has reported that Apple is confiding in LG instead of Samsung due to concerns of technology leaks. The report adds LG Innotek is also working on developing flexible printed circuit board or RFPCB for the foldable iPhones.
Samsung, however, seems to have an edge over Apple when it comes to foldable smartphones. LG reportedly completed its own foldable OLED panel prototype two to three years ago and has been upgrading the durability and the yield rate.
Apple Inc (Apple) designs, manufactures and markets mobile communication and media devices, personal computers, and portable digital music players, and a variety of related software, services, peripherals, networking solutions, and third-party digital content and applications. Apple already has a head start in the segment, and the company believes they will be able to maintain an unassailable lead over Android in the segment for the next few years.
