Apple reportedly partnering with LG for folding iPhone

Apple reportedly partnering with LG for folding iPhone”

Apple is said to be working on a new foldable iPhone, but such a device may not be here for a few years yet. According to The Bell (via The Investor), Apple is working with LG and not Samsung to create an iPhone with a foldable OLED panel.

Samsung is speculated to make a lot of cash from sales of Apple's iPhone X. Like, a lot. LG reportedly completed its own foldable OLED panel prototype two to three years ago and has been upgrading the durability and the yield rate. LG is expected to have production facilities for flexible OLED capable of meeting Apple's requirements by 2019, but it's thought the flexible iPhone might not appear until 2020.

Amid Samsung's near monopoly in mobile OLED production, Apple has been strengthening its partnership with LG Display, its long-time LCD partner.

Apple now relies on Samsung as its sole supplier of OLED displays used in the upcoming iPhone X, although the company is working on adding LG to the mix in an effort to increase production and lower cost. The reason is that Samsung supplies a number of the phone's components - notably its curved OLED display.

So, why not just go with Samsung Display and get it out sooner?

What's really surprising about this new report is that Apple is planning on creating a foldable iPhone.

Looking at how many leaks have poured with tremendous amounts of viscosity throughout this year, Apple will be extremely careful with its steps, and unfortunately, it will have to keep Samsung out of this project at least for now.

Looks like Apple might lose the race against Samsung when it comes to releasing a foldable flagship but at least the company will know that its secrets are kept safe for the time being.
