Apple Reportedly Working With LG To Release A Foldable iPhone In 2020

Apple Reportedly Working With LG To Release A Foldable iPhone In 2020

That is if a new report from South Korea turns out to be accurate. It must be really hard for Apple to have to work with its arch-rival in this way, but as it seems, it is out of sound alternatives. If that's true, it could mean that Apple's foldable iPhone won't be out until after Samsung releases its first foldable smartphone, which is supposedly slated for release next year. Samsung's monopoly in producing iPhone parts has likely prompted Apple to explore possible cooperation with other suppliers like Sharp and Japan Display.

The Bell says that LGD has set up a task force to develop the foldable screen, while its component-making sister company LG Innotek has started a team to develop the "rigid flexible (yeah, we know...) printed circuit board", or RFPCB. Will we actually see a folding smartphone from Apple next year?

Apple is apparently trying to create a foldable iPhone, and LG is reportedly supplying the displays.

It's investing in LG to do chiefly two things: increase and expedite OLED display production and diminish Samsung's monopoly in the business. LG, back in 2016, had showcased a roll-up OLED display.

The report adds that LG has been working on its own foldable OLED panels for years, and is reportedly improving its durability as well as yield rate.

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. An alleged partnership with LG is noteworthy given that Samsung is now the world's premier OLED maker. The tech major is reportedly collaborating with LG Display on a foldable handset.

According to a report published by The Korea Investor, Apple was claimed to have begun working on an IPhone prototype with a foldable display. A new plant named the E6 is also under development and will be at manufacturing capacity by 2019. The firm now has a $208.00 price target on the iPhone maker's stock.
